“Nakba” is an Arab word for catastrophe. Nakba day is the day the Arabs commemorate the day that the State of Israel was established. They call it a catastrophe because it is the day they lost a war that they started. As you can tell, it was a self-inflicted “catastrophe”. Yet the world likes to sympathize with their plight and ignore this very important fact in its reporting.
However, one thing is clear to us. Israel will not mourn the failure of the Arabs to massacre us in 1948. That is what the “nakba” is all about. They tried to massacre us and they failed. Israel today is a thriving country and the Arabs still cry to the world about losing a war that they started. They don’t deserve anyone’s attention. They are classic crybabies unwilling to take responsibility for their own actions, still 70 years later.
The Media Ignores Their own Stories
The “palestinian” Arabs have only themselves to blame for losing their homes and here is the full story why.

Syrian Historian: We have Ourselves to Blame
Writing in his 1948 book, The Meaning of the Disaster, Syrian historian Dr. Constantin Zureiq wrote, “Seven Arab countries declare war on Zionism in Palestine….Seven countries go to war to abolish the partition and to defeat Zionism, and quickly leave the battle after losing much of the land of Palestine – and even the part that was given to the Arabs in the Partition Plan.”
“When the battle broke out,” Zureiq wrote, “our public diplomacy began to speak of our imaginary victories, to put the Arab public to sleep and talk of the ability to overcome and win easily – until the nakba happened.”
He concluded, “We must admit our mistakes…and recognize the extent of our responsibility for the disaster that is our lot.”
Watch this Arab say why he left his home and became a refugee. This is the whole story. They are to blame for starting a war against us and then losing their homes.
UNRWA vs. UNHCR
Did you know that the United Nations has two different organizations to deal with refugees? UNHCR repatriates refugees from all over the world. UNRWA deals only with refugees from the Jewish-Arab conflict. UNRWA does NOT repatriate them, but supports them in refugee camps in Gaza, Judea & Samaria, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.
In addition, as opposed to UNHCR which only deals with the actual refugees who lost their homes due to war or conflict, UNRWA passes the refugee status from generation to generation. Today’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the refugees from 1948 are still considered refugees according to the United Nations.
The comparison of two United Nations organizations that showcases the blatant anti-Israel double standard when it comes to refugees. No other refugee population has a “nakba”, just those who lost their homes in a war against the Jews.
UNRWA vs. UNHCR: a story of refugees that must be told on what Palestinians call “Nakba Day”
Palestinians often blame Israel for the #Nakba and the refugees problem, but the truth is that Palestinians left their homes b/c their were asked to do it by the Arab armies that invaded Israel.
