   Anti-Zionist polemic by the Jewish community of Baghdad. Only seven synagogues remained in 1960 of the 60 synagogues of Baghdad in 1950. The community was vastly reduced by the 1951 mass aliyah to Israel. The remaining Jews were subjected to periodic arrests on charges of Zionism, tortured, and executed by the regime. This booklet was printed to offset the "Zionist" victory against the Arab armies in the war.
