Yes indeed, Lyn. Driving Jews out has been the policy of any number of countries and I can't think of any offhand who found it was a good idea. Doesn't stop anyone, though.

lyn, you are not entirely wrong, but remember that the Arab world began its decline centuries ago. It was not just the loss of the Jews but the blinkered thinking that drove us out that really hurt the modern Arab world.

a wonderful example of Goebbel's "big lie" theory. For decades, the Arab masses have been told that they must tolerate corrupt autocracies because of "Israel", but that has nothing to do with this widely-held belief that 300 million Arabs live in squalor because 5 million Jews live in Israel.

While I broadly agree with your analysis, I think it is worth pointing out that Arab society began its decline with the exodus of their Jewish population. The Jews were an important part of the urban middle class - traders,professionals,civil servants. The Arab world is still reeling from their loss, but would never admit to it.
