You can’t read the news today without hearing the troubling stories of hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing their homes in the Middle East. But Dumisani Washington, Diversity Outreach Coordinator for Christians United for Israel, is here to tell you about a group that is never mentioned in the mainstream press or in history classrooms: the Jewish refugees.

Nearly one million Jews fled Arab countries after Israel gained its independence in 1948, and, despite their disparate ethnic backgrounds and lands of origin, assimilated very quickly into Israeli society. Mr. Washington contrasts this group with the Palestinians who, after nearly five decades of generous international support, still claim to be part of a refugee crisis. Why this difference? Watch the video that follows and find out.
