The Rome Jewish weekly, Voice of the Jewish Community, today published a report on the situation of the 3,000 Jews now in Libya. The report pointed out that some 27,000 Jews had left the Arab League state–a creation of the United Nations–since the end of the war because of pogroms, racial laws and other forms of discrimination.
