“When Gaddafi came to power . . . all Jewish property was confiscated and all debts to Jews cancelled. . . . The last Jew living in Libya, Esmeralda Meghnagi, died in February 2002. This marked the end of one of the world’s oldest Jewish communities, which traced its origins to the 3rd century B.C.E.” --Jewish VIrtual Library
