William Nassar Protesting Concert May 15th

May 15th is the day of commemoration of the Nakba of 1948.  Nakba means “Catastrophe” in Arabic. It refers to the destruction of Palestinian society in 1948 when more than 700,000 Palestinians fled or were forced into exile by Israeli troops. Because the Palestinians were not Jewish, their presence and predominant ownership of the land were obstacles to the creation of a Jewish state. Their exodus, or Nakba, was already nearly half-complete by May 1948, when Israel declared its independence and the Arab states entered the fray. [learn more at IMEU.net]
