Where are the tears for these displaced people? 

'Iraqi Council Weighs Return of Jews, Rejecting It So Far' -- headline, A.P.

As I have written before, the Middle East is filled with displaced peoples. It is always difficult to know what to do with them, and I have no idea what the Iraqi governing council should do about the Iraqi Jews driven from the country during the last 50 years. Note, however, that displaced Iraqi Jews are not still living in camps, are not particularly known for preaching hatred, and do not detonate themselves in crowds of civilians. They therefore garner no sympathy from the world, notwithstanding their plight.
