No one threw Jews from Morocco. The ones who emmigrated to Israel did it for ideological reasons.
My father from the pharmaceutical industry in Casablanca was integrated into the Kupat Holim health system in Israel after a short board exam and worked in his profession until retirement.
He was loved, respected and admired by all his Ashkenazi collegues, who were always guests in our house.

European Zionists and fled to the US or Europe instead of staying in Israel and suffer discrimination and bigotry aimed towards the ME Jews.
8. the middle east
Dylan R ,   Chicago,US   (01.14.19)
Jews fled to israel and different countries because they weren't accepted. Israel accept all types of people. Arabs, Jews, muslims, christians, etc. They have no problem including everyone in their country. The rest of the middle east only accepts their kind. Tells you the difference between jews and arabs.
9. Stupid question: Where did all the jews .....
doug ,   Ft Lauderdale   (01.18.19)
We know where they went, Everywhere else that could or would take them in. They were thrown our or they ran away out of safety and or fear of death. Who are we kidding? The ARABS were no better than Hitler Stalin and others. Stop the stupid questions and say it like it is.

My father arrived in British Palestine in 1941 after mostly walking from Baghdad.

So I guess that also makes him a Palestinian Jew.
