The Herut party characteristically maintained that Iraq's action had only increased the Arab debt to Israel.36

The only Arab participant in the debate, Communist Tawfiq Tubi, called Iraq's action a "reactionary and arbitrary racial step . . . organized by agents of imperialism." To prove that the masses of Iraq opposed the new law, he pointed out that it had been passed by a close vote of 56 to 50. "The reactionary policy" of Israel toward its Arab minority merely encouraged Iraqi oppression of the Jews. He urged the Foreign Minister not to react to the Iraqi policy by adopting a similar one toward Israel's Arabs.37

The more than 106,000 Iraqi Jews who were flown to Israel in Operation "Ali Baba," in less than a year and a half constituted a strong pressure group. This small but compact Jewish minority became one of the largest single ethnic groups brought into Israel by the "ingathering." More than 15,000 of its members were from the intellectual, professional and capitalist class. They were represented in the Kneset, in the business and financial world, and in the "best social circles."38 They insisted that the Government of Israel do more to protect their interests in Iraq and one delegation requested the Foreign Ministry to demand the establishment of an international authority to safeguard their property. Mr. Sharett replied that feelers had been put out for such a move, but with no results.39

"Because of the influence of their governments in the Arab world," aide-mémoires containing Israel's attitude on the question were presented to the Ambassadors of the United States and the United Kingdom in Israel.40 The notes expressed Israel's view that American and British interest in finding a solution to the Arab refugee problem was directly linked to the recent events in Iraq. Israel now threatened to withhold further compensation payments into the integration fund unless Iraqy changed its policy toward its Jewish residents.
