Algeria: Arabs Against Zionism

Algerian blogger Nouri shares his observations on anti-Zionist sentiments among Arabs – of different religions.


  • Salaam & shalom,

    I wonder if I got my facts straightened out for this:

    Jews in Algeria
    1948: 140,000
    2000: 100

    It’s about statistics on the expulsion of the Jews from the Moslim and European (“semi-Christian”, so to say) countries. It is STATISTICS, not Zionism.

    Be blessed,
    Pauli Ojala

      Statistics by themselves and taken out of their historical context mean nothing. Most of the Jews of Algeria left with the French in 1962, not because they were chased or chastised, but simply because they made the sad choice. of choosing to side with the occupying forces (France) instead of the Algerians with whom they shared history and culture.
