WEDNESDAY changed into discovered because the 71st anniversary of the Nakba, the event the Palestinians recollect as the ‘disaster’ that brought about their apparently everlasting banishment from their place of origin, and the beginning of endless brutalities and humiliation heaped upon them by Israel. In typical style, Israel marked the day via wounding round 50 Palestinians — who had marched to the Israel-Gaza border to call for the reunification of their land — using live rounds on the marchers. It changed into sheer excellent fortune that none of the demonstrators have been killed.

. Sadly, it appears as if the Palestinian dream to stay as a unfastened human beings in a hometown of their very own will continue to be unrealised, as there appears to be no person ready to call out Israel for its atrocious behaviour and grave human rights abuses. That is despite the fact that the UN has stated that Israel’s vicious methods towards the Palestinians — over 2 hundred Arabs have been killed considering that March 2018 by way of the Zionist kingdom — may additionally represent conflict crimes. However who will have the courage to take Israel to mission, when its biggest benefactor sitting inside the White residence is inclined to whitewash all its crimes, and actually ‘praise’ it with the aid of recognising its illegal occupation of Jerusalem and the Golan Heights?

The Arab-Israeli peace method as we recognise it's miles dead, and Tel Aviv under Netanyahu has carried out its final rites via crushing the Palestinians and burying the 2-kingdom solution. It seems the hopes raised by way of the Oslo process inside the Nineties were false; all that the Palestinians have received in go back for agreeing to make peace with Israel is greater humiliation, more violence and extra unlawful annexation in their land. And now, to add insult to harm, the Trump administration is getting ready a ‘deal of the century’ that, if information leaked are to be believed, will make the ghettoisation of the Palestinians everlasting, deny them their right over Jerusalem, and present top Arab land to Israel on a platter. The disaster unleashed by the Nakba, it seems, suggests no signal of finishing.
