Up­rooted: How 3,000 Years of Jewish Civil­i­sa­tion in the Arab World Van­ished Overnight, de­scribed how a knowl­edge of the ex­pe­ri­ence of Mizrachi Jews — Jews pri­mar­ily from the Mid­dle East and North Africa — may help the Labour leader. “It would cer­tainly en­hance the prospects for peace if he were to have a less lop­sided and neg­a­tive view of the Jews and Is­rael.”

Ms Julius cited, for ex­am­ple, the wide­spread be­lief on the far-left that Is­rael “is a white, colo­nial set­tler state.”

In fact, she said, “half the Jews of Is­rael are so-called ‘peo­ple of colour’ — they have their roots in Arab lands.

She added: “The Jews from Arab coun­tries could have told both Cor­byn and Liv­ing­stone that the Ha’avara Agree­ment was not ev­i­dence of col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Zion­ists and Nazis, but that it was a des­per­ate mea­sure to save Jews.”
