Who was the proponent of this report? When was it written? (Sometime in the mid-1940s, I imagine).
I see someone already asked my question. Who wrote this report and for which agency? Interesting read to say the least but my impression is that it was written by someone not too sympathetic to the Jewish cause.
The report came to me raw as is. I found it very interesting. It provides its own context. Anything more is out of context...
Also, in response to one of the previous posts claiming that Jewish-Arabs were idyllic before the creation of Israel, Wikipedia has an interesting entry about the "Farhud", the anti-Jewish pogrom that took place in Baghdad in June 1941 (during WWII): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farhud
You forgot to mention that the accused soldier, who was eventually found guilty of various crimes and imprisoned, was released when the two key witnesses in the case admitted that they had lied.
