A Jewish family from Yemen are airlifted to Israel in 2009.

So much for Jews living peacefully under Islamic rule.

The government of Yemen ordered that all Jews either convert to Islam or be deported, a representative of the Jewish community in Yemen told Israeli Deputy Minister Kara, according to a report by Lahav Harkov, a reporter for the JPost.


Harkov adds that the Yemenite government said if the Jews don’t convert or leave, they will no longer be protected by the government and won’t punish anyone who kills them.

There’s an estimated 180 to 350 Jews left in Yemen.
