Before starting to talk about Nakba Day, we will touch upon some of the events and circumstances that Palestine went through before that. For a period of more than 1200 years, Muslims ruled Palestine, and Muslims, Christians and Jews lived in it in peace, and the last Islamic rule under the Ottoman Caliphate until the beginning of the twentieth century. Until 1900 AD, most of the inhabitants of Palestine were Muslims, at an approximate rate of 85%, Christians at 10%, and Jews at 5%. But the Zionist project had begun the waves of Jewish immigration from all over the world to Palestine, and this organized migration is the main reason for the Palestine issue, as the coming Jews were carried by the Zionist ideology based on the fact that the land of Palestine is a land for them alone and the fate of the original inhabitants does not matter. The important thing is for them to establish a Jewish state for them, whatever means, and the first Jewish settlement in Palestine in 1878 AD.
The Nakba is the displacement of more than 700,000 Palestinians on May 15, 1948.
The word “Nakba” in the Arabic language refers to the catastrophe. The Nakba is a Palestinian term that examines the human tragedy related to the displacement of a large number of Palestinian people from their homes during the Israeli-Arab war in 1948. It led to a large-scale internal displacement and the Palestinians were expelled from their villages and homes, leaving only their keys and hopes of returning to their homes with them.
Nakba Day (the 48th War) is: –
The fateful day, after the name of the Zionist entity was included on the map of the globe, commemorated the anniversary of the displacement of the Palestinian people, corresponding to the establishment of Israel in 1948. The Palestinians remember the humanitarian tragedy and displacement that befell them. On the day of the Nakba, Walid Al-Lahzab did not come. Rather, he was preceded by many war crimes that the Zionist entity committed against the Palestinian people, such as an attack on them and their lands in a way that is not permitted by international law, morals or customs. The entity committed mass massacres, looting, plundering, destroying property and forced eviction from homes, and the Zionist occupation forced the Palestinians to sign papers to sell their lands. As a result of these actions, fifty percent of the Palestinians were displaced before the start of the Nakba Day in 1948.
In order to achieve its objectives, the occupation used the method of intimidation and enticement to make the Jewish communities distributed over the countries of the world, to come to Palestine to establish settlements and to bite off the Palestinian lands little by little. The entity is still practicing its occupation of all Palestinian lands, it practices random executions of innocent people, it is also practicing Judaization of Holy Jerusalem, desecrating the Noble Mosque and expanding its settlements, as well as Judaizing the West Bank, and it continues the blockade for more than 15 years on the Gaza Strip by land, air and sea. Before the Nakba, 1.4 million Palestinians lived in Palestine, and because of the Nakba, more than 780,000 Palestinians were displaced, and during the ten years after the Nakba, 850,000 Jews entered Palestine, and as a result of the war, Jerusalem was divided into eastern Jerusalem by the hands of the Arabs until 1967 AD, and a western Jerusalem was occupied by the Jews. After 1948 AD the Jews occupied 78% of Palestine. Among the cities that became affiliated with the Zionist entity after the Nakba are: West Jerusalem, Acre, Haifa, Jaffa, Tiberias, Beisan, Safad, Ramle, Nazareth, Ashkelon, Beersheba. He called these cities the name of the lands of the 48 or the cities of occupied Palestine.
