Jewish refugees

A bill (H. Res. 185) addressing the issue of Jewish refugees from Muslim countries will be marked up this week in the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The legislation, co-sponsored by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), states in part that "any resolutions relating to the issue of Middle East refugees, and which include a reference to the required resolution of the Palestinian refugee issue, must also include a similarly explicit reference to the resolution of the issue of Jewish, Christian, and other refugees from Arab countries."
