Nakba Action

Mazin Qumsiyeh, PhD

May 19, 2012

For the global community, there is nothing more consequential than the catastrophic failure after World War II to learn the correct lessons. Instead, the world continued with the business of war as usual (and war is business). One of the most destabilizing forces in the world was created and sustained for 100 years before the USA took on nurturing it after WWII. I am ofcourse speaking of Zionism. This is the idea that came from Napoleon in 1799, took official sanction by the British in 1845, picked up by the British and French Jewish rich individuals (deHirsch, Montefiore Rothschild etc), took the name of Zionism in 1890 (by Birnbaum), and then these wealthy Zionist Jews established the "Jewish Colonization Association" in 1891 and the World Zionist Congress in 1897, and received public declarations of support by the governments of France and Britain in 1917. The result today is unmistakable: millions of refugees, the rape, destruction and transformation of an ancient beautiful Holy land, the destruction of Yiddish and Ladino cultures and languages, countless wars, and destablization and de-development of the Arab world and beyond. But as I say to my students: do your own homework because you should form your own opinion based on facts and solid information! Here are links about Nakba that came to my inbox in the last week.

Palestine : les acquis de la résistance populaire
Mazin Qumsyieh : "En ce 64ème anniversaire de la Nakba, nous portons le deuil du nettoyage ethnique qui a débuté en 1948 et qui continue aujourd’hui par des transferts subreptices, des démolitions de maisons, la confiscation de terres, etc. Mais nous célébrons aussi une résilience et une réussite étonnantes du peuple palestinien autochtone, dans des conditions incroyablement défavorables".
