What is the Nakba?

מפה של קרן הקיבוץ הדתי

“Nakba” is an Arabic word meaning “great disaster” or “catastrophe” (نكبة).

It refers to the destruction of most Palestinian localities that existed in the area that became the state of Israel, and the expulsion of most of their Palestinian residents, in 1948.

“Jewish localities were established in place of Arab villages. You don’t even know the names of those Arab villages, and I don’t blame you, because those geography texts no longer exist. Not only the books are gone; the Arab villages are also gone: Nahalal in place of Ma’lul; Kibbutz Gvat in place of Jibta; Kibbutz Sarid in place of Huneifis; Kfar Yehoshua in place of Tal Al-Shuman. Wherever Jews built, they built on land where Arabs once lived.”

(Minister of Defense Moshe Dayan, 4.4.1969, from an article in Ha’aretz).

Most Israel Jews don’t know the names of the Palestinian villages because they were changed or erased completely when the state was established.
