The forgotten

Practically unmentioned in the whole discussion of the Iraq war is the once-thriving Jewish community. Although most recent counts place the number of Jews currently in the country at less than 100, there is a rich heritage going back more than 2500 years. The Babylonian Jewry Heritage Center has loads of fascinating articles and links for you to peruse.

    Admittedly very similar things are true of much of the Middle East (excepting Israel, obviously), and true of Christian communities throughout the area as well. After thousands of years of living more or less peacefully, most of them have left over the last 50 years. It’s not a positive trend.
