The Campaign for Rights and Redress is gearing up to lobby for the resolution in Congress requesting that whenever the rights and concerns of the Palestinians are addressed in law or action, that the Jewish Refugees from the Arab Countries also be mentioned.

Rep. Tom Lantos is a co-sponsor. We will be campaigning to get our entire Congressional delegation on board .

Restitution for Egyptian Jews versus Palestinian rights

[October 19, 2005] Brandeis University, ....

"....the Japanese example is different, that Egypt has paid some restitution to Jews from Egypt? And that if we are expecting President Mubarak to apologize, the answer is  “No”.


We want to move forward and nothing is to be gained by rehashing the past, or try to assess who is right and who is wrong!! ."


....After all once our generation has passed on the newer generation already feels the obligation to carry that torch forward.


Yes your Excellency “I agree with you”
