Revision of the Damgana often includes the following arguments.
• False: Jews left the Islamic states voluntarily in the Damgana.
• True: Whether or not Jews viewed themselves as emigrating to live in a better society, the issue is they had little or no choice. Also, steps such as denationalization were taken to ensure they were completely cut off from the Islamic world.
• False: today there remain thriving Jewish communities.
• True: Today, the main Jewish communities are in Morocco, Iran, and Turkey. However, the populations that remain are a small fraction of the pre-Damgana total.
