Less than 20 Jews left in Egypt

Most sources say that there are around 100 Jews left in Egypt.

But an interview with the new leader of Egypt's Jewish community, the rabidly anti-Zionist Magda Haroun, indicates that things are much worse than that.

According to Dostour, Haroun says that there are now "nearly 20" Jews left in all of Egypt.

Haroun was attending a press conference to ensure that Egypt's latest constitution provides rights for minorities, saying that "even if there is only one Jew in Egypt they deserve their rights."

It is easy to provide rights to people after they have been ethnically cleansed.

Here are the numbers of Jews left in Arab countries, from a number of sources.
