Nadler Travels to Israel to Speak at the Justice For Jewish Refugees from Arab Countries Conference

Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan/Brooklyn) recently traveled to Israel where he joined Israeli and international leaders to call for better recognition of the rights of Jewish refugees from Arab countries.

“I am proud to have visited Israel this week to speak about the absolute necessity of recognizing the plight of Jewish refugees from Arab countries,” said Nadler. “It is simply wrong to recognize the rights of Palestinian refugees without recognizing the rights of nearly one million Jewish refugees who suffered terrible outrages at the hands of their former compatriots. We must not retreat from the obvious injustice these Jewish refugees face, and we must continue the effort to emphasize that the plight of all refugees must be considered equally and fairly in any final peace agreement.”

Speaking at the Justice for Jewish Refugees from Arab Countries Conference, which was cosponsored by the Israeli government and the World Jewish Congress, Congressman Nadler discussed his work in Congress to ensure that the U.S. leads the way in acknowledging the terrible injustices visited upon Jewish refugees from the Middle East and to ensure equal treatment for Jewish refugees.

Congressman Nadler passed a congressional resolution on the issue back in 2008 and, most recently, he has introduced bi-partisan legislation, H.R. 6242, that calls on the Administration to report to Congress on its progress in pursuing justice for Jewish refugees from Arab countries.

Jerrold Nadler has served in Congress since 1992. He represents New York’s 8th Congressional District, which includes parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
