Summary
"As Itamar Levin shows in this survey, the Jews of Iraq were forced to give up their citizenship in order to obtain permission to leave. Their property was then seized. The Jews of Egypt were deported after the Sinai Crisis, leaving their possessions behind. Through the years the Jews of Syria have been gradually stripped of their belongings. Levin estimates that the total value of the Jewish property lost in Arab countries is some $6 to $10 billion. No compensation was ever paid to the tens of thousands of Jews who lost their homes, jobs, savings, and property. Locked Doors is a must read for anyone interested in the modern Middle East and the negotiations for a final settlement between the Arabs and Israelis."--Jacket
