10,000 Palestinians mark Nakba Day with demonstrations at Gaza border


Harretz: Sixty Gazans were injured Wednesday as Israeli security forces used live fire, tear gas and skunk spray against 10,000 protesters commemorating Nakba Day along the Gaza border, the Palestinian Health Ministry reported.

Marches also took place in Ramallah and Bethlehem. Lawmaker Ahmad Tibi attended the march in Ramallah, alongside Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh.

Addressing the Trump peace plan, Tibi said, “Every Palestinian boy says no, the Palestinian president says no. Without Jerusalem, without a state, without autonomy and rights and the return of refugees, the Palestinian people say no.” He added: “Neither Israel’s nation-state law nor the Trump peace plan can annul the Palestinian narrative and the popular struggle for liberty and freedom.” more …

Opinion: The 1948 Palestinian exodus, also known as the Nakba  (Arabic: النكبة‎, al-Nakbah) literally “disaster”, “catastrophe”, or “cataclysm”.

The Palestinian exodus occurred when more than 700,000 Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled from their homes, during the 1948 Palestine war.

Nakba , the catastrophe, is a lie. Arabs fled their homes in 1948 because their leaders refused a two-state solution in 1947 and chose war instead.

To accommodate the lie, the UN (UNRWA) changed the definition of a refugee for Palestinian Arabs only, from “permanent” or “habitual” to a two-year occupancy:

“Under UNRWA’s operational definition, Palestine refugees are persons whose normal place of residence was Palestine between June 1946 and May 1948, who lost both their homes and means of livelihood as a result of the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict.

UNRWA’s services are available to all those living in its area of operations who meet this definition, who are registered with the Agency and who need assistance. UNRWA’s definition of a refugee also covers the descendants of persons who became refugees in 1948.”

So the lies continue until the end of the age.
