Palestinains Mark 'Nakba', Protesters Killed in Clashes

Monday, May 16, 2011

Yesterday marked the anniversary of the creation of Israel in 1948 and thousands of Palestinians marched to mark what they call the "Nakba" or the "catastrophe." Ever year, Palestinians protest this date. Sunday, thousand of protesters marched on Israel's borders with Syria, Lebanon and Gaza and over a dozen were killed in clashes with Israeli troops. It was significant that protesters crossed over from Syria's borders, says the BBC's correspondent in Jerusalem, Wyre Davies.

Marking what could be called historically a self inflicted "catastrophe" is a continuation of the "Arab Spring"? Didn't Hamas just praised OBL and isn't Assad sending "protesters" to the Golan a cynical attempt distract from his vicious crackdown knowing it will be upstaged in the world media by whatever Israel does to defend her borders?
