A Day to Remember

Published: May 20, 2008, Author: JayTaber

Palestinian citizens of Israel last week observed Israel’s Independence Day with their own ceremonies commemorating Nakba (Catastrophe), by walking their children in extended family groups to the sites of their former villages destroyed by Israel to erase the evidence of Palestinian civilization. While this day of observance took place in hundreds of locations across the Jewish state, it was near Nazareth this Independence Day that mounted Israeli police charged into the Palestinian families with batons, firing stun grenades and tear gas indiscriminately into the peaceful procession of remembrance—an event the young children present will no doubt remember.
