1. If they'd take that minute of silence
Charles   (05.15.13)
and reflect on what could have been had they not rejected the formation of the Jewish state, how their lives could be infinitely better, things would improve for them immediately. But alas...
2. Nakba Day, the Day of Catastrophe: The liberal democratic...
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (05.15.13)
...and sovereign nation-state of the Jewish people was proclaimed and began its life on a tiny portion of the Jewish people's ancestral homeland. Thus, Jews ought to continue to be attacked, some 65 after the Jewish people re-instituted sovereignty in its homeland of 4,000 years. And the world, cynically, is silent.
3. just solution for the refugees
Gabor ,   Budapest, Hungary   (05.15.13)
I read in the book "Quo Vadis, Israel", written by Efraim Halevy, that during the Camp David summit, Bill Clinton offered (I think) 100 thousand USD to all the Arab Palestinian refugee families, who would give up their "right of return". This would have required the host countries to accept them but the issue never got forward because - surprise - Arafat rejected it. I never found any other source for this information but if something, this definitely would be a just solution.

6. French mark Naqba day: Algerian independence and invasion..
Andre ,   France   (05.15.13)
French mark Naqba day: Algerian independence and invasion of France by millions of arabs from Algeria. Those you saw rioting and looting in Paris. (Not those other arabs you see rioting and looting in Britain, Belgium, Italy, Sweden, Israel...)
7. Historical Legacy Future Apocolypse
Zechariah   (05.15.13)
For the Arab people the stupidity of rejecting the 1947 UN partition is the. Real Catastrophe but with their own leaders advocating nuclear weapons attacks on the Jews it is the Future Threat of Violent Apocolyptical Suicide that needs urgent Prevention .
moshe ,   Tivon, Israel   (05.15.13)
the name "Naqba"; Arabic for "Day of the Catastrophe" is typical of the way that the pals regard the Arab loss in 1948 war the newborn,"Israel". A war of the mighty against the weak, which the pals L O S T. "The Day of Shame" is the name a pal realist ( are there ANY? ?) should call the loss to the then desperate, threatened Jews. moshe
9. May G-d give you many more Nabka yearly celebrations!
David ,   Israel-USA   (05.15.13)
10. How many times a year do they celebrate 'Nakba'?
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (05.15.13)
11. They Shouldn't Really Complain
Michael ,   California, USA   (05.15.13)
Because they'd be treated as perfect first-class equals in the State of Israel. Because no Palestinian has ever had land forcibly confiscated by a foreign military. Because they enjoy the same freedom to live and roam and build housing as any settler. Because they have a democratic vote in the authority that controls their society. Because they've been offered the right of return and opportunity to become citizens demographically outnumbering the Jewish population. Because they're really Jordanians but insist on living west of the river. Because all peoples have a right to defend themselves, except Palestinians. And other silly false reasons why they should shut up about the Nakba.
12. Nakba sameach. Now pass the sweets.
Cowboy Joe ,   Calgary, Canada   (05.15.13)
13. Arabs why are you still in denial?
Christian supporter   (05.15.13)
Arabs, why are in denial? If you all worshiped the True G_d you would be celebrating one of the promises of G_d that came to pass (in 1948). Here is a refresher on Israel 101 as promised by G_d via his prophet Amos: AMOS 9:15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God. Below is one of God's warnings to the world, and you wonder why the Arab world is such a failed model? GENESIS 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Gallula ,   Paris   (05.15.13)
Their siren can last forever : the time of Israel existence !!!!

Michel ,   Paris France   (05.15.13)
You ´re Very right Désinvest in France And make alya This Is the only Way La France c est fini Cheer
16. One mans nakba day is another's independence day!
Jerome ,   Basalt, Colorado   (05.15.13)
If the aRabs would have excepted peace instead of war, hate and trying to steal the Jews land from the beginning they wouldn't be always celebrating darkness!
17. @ 13 Amen !!!
isaac ,   hyderabad & India   (05.15.13)
@ 13 Amen !!!
18. What a wonderful stradegy
Paul ,   Jerusalem   (05.15.13)
Sent in more soldiers, and ensure that they are maimed, killed or crippled. This should make the Arabs feel good, and the International community joyous. Giving them the gift of injured soldiers is sure to bring Israel praise, and the privilege of submitting more to the deranged goals of Obama, the UN, the EU and the wonderful lot of Muslim Jihad savages.
19. a second for every year?
Arn ,   Yehud, Israel   (05.15.13)
One second for every year??? I hope they will have the patience to manage their naqba sirens for a few hours.
20. The arabs offer is...
Ami   (05.16.13)
According to Abo-Mazen a just peace will be achieved with the 2 states solution. When one state is free from Jews and in a second state the Jews are a minority... Typical example for the Arabic way of thinking. Dream on West Bankers...
21. To celebrate the totally uncessful
Ralph Haglund ,   Sweden   (05.16.13)
attack from the collected Arab World on the Jews seems slightly macabre. If the arabs should celebrate every uncessful act, their sirens would soon break down. The "palestinians" got control over A, B IF THEY STOPPED TERROR AND HATE INCITEMENT! They did not so they should lose A, B, who could complain?
22. arabs mourn war they have started???
ghostq   (05.16.13)
in 1948 arabs shoot the first shoot on buses that were on the way to Jerusalem. it escalated to full war. usually normal human being mourn with no violance, sound like arabs just find opportunities to use violance in a holly city nevertheless.
23. The catastrophe for them is that they lost the war they begu
