*AlNakba: An Arabic word meaning "catastrophe or disaster".
Palestinians use this word - AlNakba, in reference to the events that
took place in Palestine in 1948 and culminated on May 15 of that year in
the forced creation of the state of Israel followed by the first Arab
63 years after the Nakba, Palestinians across the globe continue to
commemorate that part of their modern history. It is a constant reminder
of the 800,000 Palestinians who were forced to flee their homes,
villages and towns to become refugees - the grand parents of 7 million
Palestinians today. It is also a reminder of the 535 Palestinian
villages destroyed by Zionist terrorist groups.
