Nakba Continued..

Posted: April 20, 2014 in Al-Nakba

Ethnics cleansing operations continued and enabled the Zionist to take over increasing areas of the territory of Palestine. By the end of July 1948 more than 400,000 Palestinians were expelled from their lands.

The devastated Palestinian villages were everywhere on the road. International help started ti come (UNICEF) and saw how Palestinians people have become impoverished refugees waiting for basic food stuff in long lines to help them survive: flower, sugar and milk.

“It would be a offence against the principle of elementary justice if these innocent victims would be denied their right to return to their homes”

While Jewish immigrants flew into Palestine and indeed at least offered the threat of permanent replacement of the Arab refugees who have been rooted in the land for centuries.

Though the UN had declared that Jerusalem should be an international zone, there was no reaction when the Israelis occupied 80% of the area of Jerusalem outside the wall of the old city. However, Israel expelled over 30,000 Palestinians from the neighborhoods of what is now known as West Jerusalem. Israel continued its expansion. By December 1948 the number of Palestinian refugees reached over 700,000.

UN responded by adopting resolution 194, stating that refugees who want to return to their lands and live in peace with their neighbors had the right to do so as soon as possible.

All the UN resolutions have been left and not applied, mostly because of the United States.
