"Their Independence is our Nakba. The ethnic cleansing of 750,000 to one million indigenous Palestinians 70 years ago and turning them into refugees to establish a Jewish-majority state in Palestine is no cause for celebration. The Nakba is not a crime of the past, it is ongoing. We commemorate by asserting our right to return home and to live in freedom and dignity."

Update

The Trump administration's anti-Palestinian and illegal act reverses decades of official U.S. policy regarding Jerusalem and contradicts the international consensus.
