The Nakba Day is commemorated today as the "Day of the Catastrophe" in Arabic, andmany feel the need to sympathize with the Palestinian people for loosing the war of 1948, but if we are really honest, the 15th of May should be commemorated as a day of a failed genocide attack against Israel and the Jewish people.
"If the Zionists dare establish a state, the massacres we would unleash would dwarf anything which Genghis Khan and Hitler perpetrated" was what the Arab League Secretary-General, Abdul-Rahman Azzam Pasha, stated on 1st of May 1948.
These type of statements are consistent with every declaration of war against Israel from that day forward until today. "We shall destroy Israel and its inhabitants and as for the survivors, if there are any, the boats are ready to deport them," was what the then Chairman of the PLO, Ahmed Shukairy, said in Jordanian occupied Old City of Jerusalem on 1st of June 1967, right before the start of the 6 Day War.
What is the moral equivalent of commemorating the Nakba Day as the day of displacement of Palestinian people for the failed combined invasion and genocide attack by Egypt, Jordan, Syria and forces from Iraq, against Israel? The commemoration of the Nazis' loss of WWII. How else can we equate the systematic attack on a people for annihilation by the surrounding nations other than call it for what it is, a genocide attempt which they threaten to repeat?
