Tomorrow, May 15th, Palestinians and justice lovers around the world will be marking the 66th anniversary of Nakba Day (the Day of the Catastrophe). It's the day when the illegal state of Israel was officially declared an independent country on stolen land in 1948. It is the day of displacement, a day when at least 700,000 Palestinians were expelled or fled their indigenous land and hundreds of Palestinian towns and villages were destroyed and depopulated after the Zionist mafia - Stern Gang, Hagana and Irgun - went on a murderous rampage across Palestine. These refugees number several millions today scattered all over the world. They are not allowed to return home. Talking of "diaspora" it must refer to the Palestinians as 60% of them are living outside Palestine, barred from entering their ancestral homeland. Those Palestinians who are in their country are stateless within their own land, abused and enslaved by their occupiers on a daily basis. Arab citizens of Israel have been admonished for observing the Nakba Day.
For Palestinians and the world, Nakba is not only remembering the past. It's striving to change the present as well for Nakba is still happening and getting more severe by the day.
