76th #NakbaDay – in commemoration of the Israeli Genocide on Palestinians

Last year marked the 75th anniversary of the mass displacement of Palestinians, known as “the Nakba” or “the Catastrophe.” This anniversary puts the spotlight on the world’s longest-standing protracted refugee crisis, as over 5.3 M Palestine refugees still live amidst conflict.

Mohamed Hadid, the father of Bella and Gigi Hadid, delivers a heartfelt message about the Nakba and how it affected him and how his family was stabbed in the back by the Poland refugees they took in. He talks about how he couldn’t fulfill his mother’s dying wish of being buried in Nazareth.

Israel was founded on ethnic cleansing and continues carrying it out to this day.

It is not antisemitic to think that Israel needs to stop killing its neighbors. It is not antisemitic to think that stealing land, property, and life is wrong. It is not antisemitic to think that displacing the indigenous from their land is not only immoral but detrimental to us as a species.

It is not even antisemitic to think that Israel should not exist as a Jewish state.
