And now, close to fifty years later,

· 1. Egypt still has not made any restitution to its Jews for confiscated assets, as the free world has done with other Jewish communities;
· 2. Egypt still has not apologized for its past evil treatment of its Jews, as the free world has done with other Jewish communities;
· 3. Egypt still has not officially recognized the great contribution Jews have made to their country of birth, as the free world has done with other Jewish communities; and, incredibly,
· 4. Egypt is currently trying to pilfer what little is left of the Jewish heritage in Egypt. (HSJE letter to Pres. George W. Bush March 18, 2001)

 

The U.S State Department informed us that "...We understand there may be approximately 100 Torah scrolls in Egypt, of which approximately half are stored in less-than ideal conditions"

 

Mr. Nabil Fahmy the Egyptian Ambassador writes "...these artifacts have already been registered with the Egyptian Antiquity Authority and ... cannot be sent abroad"

Mr. Ambassador. WE ASK WHERE ARE THEY LOCATED TO BE VIEWED BY THE PUBLIC?
