Collateral Damage – Palestinian Refugees

Palestinian refugees make their way from Galilee in the fall of 1948.
Palestinians refer to the exodus of 1948 that followed the Arab-Israeli war as Nakba (“the Catastrophe”).

UNRWA defines Palestinian refugees as “persons whose normal place of residence was Palestine between June 1946 and May 1948, who lost both their homes and means of livelihood as a result of the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict.”

Including descendants, today over 4 million people continue to live in the region as refugees.

    I’m glad you decided to wade into this quagmire. It is a difficult topic and not PC to even talk about. It’s very easy to wind up as the skunk at someone’s lawn party if you are not very carefull. With all its inflamatory language, it is one of the most important and relavant topics that could be discussed. So walk well my sister and watch where you step.
