*Al-Nakba (Arabic for Catastrophe) refers to the mass expulsion and dispossession of the Palestinian people from their own homeland which began in 1947. More than 500 Palestinian villages were destroyed and greater than three-quarters of a million Palestinians were driven from their homes and lands by the Zionist colonization program, beginning a process of ethnic cleansing that continues unabated to this day.
