MK Ohayon: Don't Forget Oppression of Iraqi Jews

MK Shimon Ohayon (Yisrael Beytenu) on Sunday urged for the story of the “farhud” (violent depression) of the Iraqi Jews, which took place 74 years ago, to be publicly told.

"The Canadian Parliament and the U.S. Congress are talking about it, but we are not telling our children about it ," Ohayon, who is promoting a bill on this issue, told Arutz Sheva. "Jews were oppressed, bank accounts were looted and nationalized. We’re not talking about it and the truth must be told.”
