May 21, 2008 - Leave a Response

Nakba Day (Arabic: يوم النكبة yawm al-nakba15 May) meaning “day of the catastrophe” is an annual day of commemoration for the Palestinian people of the “anniversary of the creation of Israel”[1][2][3][4][5] which marks the beginning of the 1948 Palestinian exodus, the resulting defeat in the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, the loss of land that followed from the war[6] and their displacement and dispossession as a result [7]. While for Israelis, the 1948 war gave them independence and this day represents the “fulfilment of a historic ideal of the Jewish people” to establish a homeland for the Jewish people, for Palestinians, the day represents “the dispossession of hundreds of thousands of their people who were made homeless as Israel was born.”[8] The Events in Palestine during the British mandate prior to Israel’s declaration of independence, as well as the 1948 Arab-Israeli War that erupted following the invasion by neighbouring Arab states, resulted in the flight or expulsion of an estimated 700,000 Palestinian refugees,[9] and the destruction and abandonment of up to 418 Palestinian villages.[10] Palestinian Arabs call these events al-Nakba (“The Catastrophe”). Prior to its adoption by the Palestinian Nationalist movement, the term more commonly referred to the 1920 Battle of Maysalun, in which France invaded Syria and deposed Arab Revolt leader King Faisal I.
