The Nakba (Catastrophe) was a seminal event in the history of the entire Middle East. The expulsion of almost 800,000 Palestinians from their homes and land by foreign Zionists was the ultimate in both ethnic cleansing and colonialism. It was a crime against humanity that still has serious repercussions today, and is being repeated in a more insidious manner today, in East Jerusalem, the Golan Heights, The West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The World knows and looks on, bound by inaction.
The propaganda machines of the Zionist Empire are working non-stop to rewrite the historical narrative of Palestine. They are attempting to portray Palestine as an uninhabited land. They claim that it was “a land without people for a people without land”. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The following brief article looks at Palestine before the terror of the Zionist pogroms against the indigenous people. We see that far from being a wasteland, Palestine was a vibrant cultural centre fully in tune with the wider world. So long as these truths are shared by those who care about such things, then the country of Palestine will never die, no matter how desperately the Zionist deceivers try.
