Only one Jew left in Afghanistan....

Sadly, like many other muslim countries, the Jews have all left....or were expelled...

In the war-torn country of 30 million Muslims, Zebulon Simentov stands alone.

Thirteen centuries after the first Jews arrived in Afghanistan, Simentov is the last Jew left in the nation.

"It makes no difference," says the 47-year-old, who wears a yarmulke along with his shalwar kameez. "I'm like a lion -- strong and courageous."

While there were more than 40,000 Jews in Afghanistan at the turn of the 19th century, the community emptied -- first in 1948, when the state of Israel was established, and then in 1979 when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan.

Surely the Muslim countries intend to compensate the Jews they expelled? Surely the United Nations strongly condemns this ethnic cleansing? no & no? How could that be?
