Even by the fantastical standards of the daily diet of anti-Semitic and racist propaganda pumped out by Arafat's media, this claim is incredible.

PA RADIO: "MORE THAN HALF A MILLION AFGHAN JEWS ON THEIR WAY TO ISRAEL"
PA radio: U.S. flooding Israel with Afghani Jews

The United States is using its victory over the Taliban regime in Afghanistan to flood Israel with "more than half a million Afghani Jews."
That is a report relayed today at 13:00 and 14:00 (Jerusalem time) on the Palestinian Authority's state-run Voice of Palestine, even though there are practically no Jews in Afghanistan.
The report seemed designed to discredit the American military success while also linking ulterior motives to the American actions in Afghanistan, even hinting that the U.S. was conspiring in some way to harm Palestinian interests.
"It is reported that more than half a million Afghani Jews are on their way to Israel," said the Friday afternoon report that lasted for nearly a minute.
