False flag attacks by Zionists...

No really.

I remember that Jewish groups, or even the Israeli secret service wanted to "stimulate" Jews in Middle Eastern countries to move to the new Jewish state.

There were bomb attacks, as I recall. And the whole thing got exposed.

This is all from memory.

I wanted to read up on it, but have forgotten the name of the operation.

Does anybody have Wikipedia linky?

There are allegations that the attacks on Jews in Baghdad were perpetrated by "Zionist" groups:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1950%E...li_involvement

I don't know if anything has been proven there.

One famous example which has been proven is the Lavon Affair:

I have nothing to add to the above, but from that wiki link:
Quote:
After Israel publicly denied any involvement in the incident for 51 years, the surviving agents were officially honored in 2005 by being awarded certificates of appreciation by Israeli President Moshe Katzav.
There was a recent thread in which some posters claimed that Israel didn't honour terrorists.

Nowhere in particular.

I see a lot of debates on the net where the pro-Israeli side will point out that a lot of Jews were chased of their land too.
And then the anti-Israeli side will respond that all those people were actually just the victims of a false flag operation. (thereby implicitly claiming that nobody in Egypt, Morocco etc. made life impossible for those people)

I was vaguely familiar with it and thought I'd read up on the matter. (scope, impact etc) to get it in context.
