(1) A country’s “age” is not something we actively think about, but the news that “Israel” is turning 71 has penetrated the English-speaking planet. Why is Israel’s “birth” so important?
(2) Israel’s “birth” is celebrated as part of Zionism’s settler-colonial inscription and its fight for legitimacy. Zionists think that repeated screaming can turn lies into truth.
(3) Israel’s “birth,” “independence,” and “71st” birthday are of course euphemisms for the #NAKBA and the #genocide that is still being carried out against the #Palestinian people.

Where have "Women's Waves" gone in the past?

My grandfather was a train conductor in Palestine.

This is his Nakba story, so I guess its #MyNakbaStory too. (A thread.)
Jiddo - Said Assad Ismail Elkhatib - drove a train from Kantara, Egypt to Beirut. His home station was Haifa, in the north of Palestine.
Here’s his ID.

Not the cheeriest photo.

It was a tough job.

#MyNakbaStory thread: 1/ In June 1947, my grandpa Abu Adel secured a building permit from the Government of #Palestine for a home in Balad al-Shaykh, a village on the outskirts of #Haifa. For yrs, he'd been selling ful medammes (favabean stew) & hummus from the back of a donkey—
2/ —his first ever business partner. He'd take the donkey from one Palestinian village to another, traveling along unmarked roads in and around Haifa from sunrise to sunset. The people of those villages came to know my grandfather as بياع الفول, the ful seller.
3/ Abu Adel sold ful and hummus this way until he saved up enough money to open his own ful shop, pictured above in 1945, and to buy land upon which to make a home for his growing family. His shop became so popular that he would later be referred to as ملك الفول, the King of Ful

To quote @gazawia -
"May 15, 1948 is what Palestinians call the #Nakba - a day when we lost our homeland. The Nakba never ended; Palestinians continue to be denied a homeland and the right to exist. The #GreatMarchOfReturn is #Gaza‘s popular form of resistance to demand return"
#MyNakbaStory - my family were natives of the Old City, but in the late 1930's purchased a home in Bak'a/Katamon area of West Jerusalem. Very shortly after, unrest began as zionist militias ratcheted up the violence in anticipation of 1948
My great grandfather attempted to remain in his home in West Jerusalem for as long as possible, but eventually had to flee with his many young children in tow. My grandmother remembers her father admonishing her mother, telling her "No need to take so many things! We'll be back!"

Thanks to Trump's embassy move, #Nakba70 protests start a day early. Israeli army expects West Bank protests & 100,000 demonstrators in #Gaza, is preparing to use lethal force against them & again threatens to air bomb Gaza. 49 Palestinians killed & 9,545 wounded so far in Gaza
Here is a short #thread about the #Nakba
And here is my #thread about developments related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from yesterday

Short #thread: Lies that Zionists tell themselves about the #Nakba
Myth: the Arabs attacked the Jews & lost & then escaped.
Reality: the ethnic cleansing of what later became Israel started before the Arab armies intervened or even before the British left. In fact, most Palestinian cities were conquered before the declaration of independence.
Myth: the small Jewish army won a miraculous victory against the much larger Arab armies.
Fact: the only army that equaled the Jewish army during the war was the British-trained Jordanian Legion, which generally respected the UN partition plan & didn't invade what became Israel.
