Yet there were plenty of Jews living in Libya, prior to modern Zionism (as described previously). Similarly to most Arab countries, many Jews fled from Libya shortly after 1948, and those who remained fled in 1967. So it's mostly if not wholly thanks to Israel, that there are no Jews in Libya.
So out of all Muslim countries, there isn't one which keeps any religious minority sections of their population under military rule, denies them citizenship, sends planes round to bomb their houses if they are suspected of having committed a crime, or forces Christians and Jews from their land and homes to make way for Muslim settlers?
I wonder what the reaction would be in the West if any Muslim country in the middle east did so. Yet somehow, it's acceptable to many westerners when Israel does the same to a mostly Muslim population.
