Disgrace unto the nations: the Israeli state kidnapping and persecution of Yemeni Jews--not in the US press

"Between 1948 and 1954, somewhere between 1,500 and 5,000 Sephardic children, mainly Yemenite toddlers, were reported missing, with many parents being told their children had died, sparking claims they were kidnapped and given to Ashkenazi couples. Three separate committees that investigated the affair ruled that most of the children had died of sickness and that a small minority had been put up for adoption." Read Tom Segev's 1949 about how the Israeli state treated Yemeni Jewish immigrants as leopards upon arriving into the occupying state.
