What ‘Nakba Day’ Really Means – And Why Israel And the Civilized World Should Ban It


Nakba Day

Times of Israel – Cross-Posted at Joshua Pundit:

Yesterday much wass being made of the deaths of two Arabs whom were killed while engaged in the violent riots that traditionally occur on Nakba Day. As a consequence, The Palestinian Authority is threatening to halt all ‘security coordination’ , not that the ‘coordination ‘ really means that much. After all,the PA has yet to put a single person in jail for murdering a Jew… in fact it pays them a salary as an incentive for doing so, Mahmoud Abbas considers these murderers heroes and constantly foments violence against Israel’s civilians in spite of the tailored rhetoric he gives the Obama Administration and the EU.
The Arabs whom identify themselves as Palestinians have a number of curious holidays. There’s ‘Prisoner’s Day’, observed on April 17th when the Palestinians celebrate the convicted murderers in Israeli prisons for their murder of Jews.

There’s ‘Land Day’ observed on March 30th, which commemorates violent riots by the Palestinians against Israeli Authorities that led to the first intifada.
And then there’s Nakba Day, celebrated May 15th, the day after Israeli Independence day on the Gregorian calendar.

‘Nakba’ means ‘catastrophe’ in Arabic. The holiday mourns the creation of Israel and is observed by marches, fiery, incendiary speeches in Arabic and almost always violent confrontations with Israeli civilians and police.

What does ‘Nakba Day’ really represent? Like every one of the other ‘holidays’ the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians observe, it celebrates violence and terrorism.

Even before Israel was declared a state by the UN in 1948,  many of Israel’s Arabs, aided and abetted by the British authorities were engaged in violence and terrorism against Israel’s Jews. With the British appointed Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj-Amin al-Husseini spurring them on, the Arabs attacked Jewish communities throughout Mandatory Palestine in a violent campaign leading up to Israel’s independence in May of 1948. Even after that, al-Husseini’s ‘irregulars’ aided the Arab armies attempting to invade Israel, with one goal in mind, one they openly stated -a jihad ending in the ethnic cleansing and genocide of every Jew in Palestine.

You see, to the Palestinians, that’s what they’re mourning. The ‘nakba’, the ‘catastrophe’ was that they failed at an attempted genocide.

Imagine how the world would react if Germans held a public ceremony mourning the fact that they failed to kill off all of Europe’s Jews? or if the Russians publicly mourned failing to successfully starve all the Ukrainians to death or or the Turks had a holiday mourning their failure to totally wipe out the Armenians in the 1915 Genocide. Yet the Arabs whom call them selves Palestinians and their left wing groupies like the EU funded Association for the Defense of the Rights of the Internally Displaced Persons in Israel mourn their failed attempt at genocide every year.

That’s what Nakba Day represents, and it’s an excel;lent indication of what kind of ‘Palestine’ Israel will have next door if there ever is a two state solution…Especially after Abbas and the Fatah Old Guard use their Jordanian passports and leave and Hamas takes over.

But that aside, not only should Nakba Day be prohibited in Israel, but in every civilized society on the face of the earth.

This year’s Nakba commemoration coincides with slightly changing


It was the tragic result of an Arab political decision to prevent the establishment of a Jewish state in the portion of the Land of Israel that had been under the British Mandate, just as the expulsion of 12 million ethnic Germans from Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary after 1945 was the tragic result of German aggression in 1939 and later in 1941, when it invaded the Soviet Union. In both cases, masses of innocent civilians paid the price of their leaders’ aggression. But if anyone today tried to describe the expulsion of millions of Germans from Eastern Europe as a “disaster” that had nothing to do with the Third Reich’s aggression, he would rightly be called a neo-Nazi.


About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
