We had a thread about the horrific slaughter in Syria.
It ran to nearly 2000 posts, not one from you.
That shows how much you care about Arab deaths when they can't be used to attack Israel.

Syrian Jews.
"There were large communities in Aleppo (the Halabi Jews) and Damascus (the Shami Jews) for centuries, and a smaller community in Qamishli on the Turkish border near Nusaybin. In the first half of the 20th century a large percentage of Syrian Jews emigrated to the U.S., Latin America and Israel. Most of the remaining Jews left in the 28 years following 1973, due in part to the efforts of Judy Feld Carr, who claims to have helped some 3,228 Jews emigrate; emigration was officially allowed in 1992.[3] The largest Syrian Jewish community is located in Brooklyn, New York and is estimated at 75,000 strong.[4] There are smaller communities elsewhere in the United States and in Latin America.
Today, there are about 50 Jews still living within Syria, mostly in Damascus"
