The Palestinians Will Never Forget The Genocidal Ethnic Cleansing, The Systematic Expulsion And Displacement From Their Home Land In 1948.

My father and grandfather setting in the only field that have been left for our family after the wall built on our lands.

My father’s message to the world in the nakba day:

On the 15th of May of every year, the Palestinians commemorate the day of the Nakba that the day of their catastrophe in 1948 accompanied with the declaration of the state of Israel. In fact, the Palestinian dilemma began much earlier when the Zionist movement was able under the protection of the British mandate to set up the essentials before the state was created, The transition to a statehood  was a declaration. They wanted to create a predominantly Jewish state in an area which was overwhelmingly not Jewish by disenfranchising the indigenous population of Palestine.

Since then, it is called a day of remembrance ,the Palestinian remember the genocidal ethnic cleansing, the systematic expulsion and displacement from their home land. This of course, was followed by massacring innocent victims, committing rapes and other atrocities, burning, bulldozing homes and orchards, blowing up and stealing home’s property and culminated by preventing expelled Palestinians from return.

To us, this day means upheaval day, violence and cataclysmic loss, it describes the terror which drove almost one million people out of their homeland ,stripping them of identity, dignity, honors and the most basic of human rights leaving them in a perpetual suffering in exile and crumbling under the ugliest and worst occupation the history has ever known.

For 63 years, the situation has dragged on, men and women holding the papers and keys to their former homes, clutching the faded and cracked photos of their happier days; everything rendered absolute by the artificial creation of a state for foreign people on land that has been for Palestinian for millennia.

We are a refugees our original home town is jaffa city, my family lived the catastrophe and saw all the massacres and were under thread and danger from the Zionist groups at that time, then we came to Ni’lin town after 1948 and still our suffering didn’t end, only my father who stayed in Palestine and all his brothers are living in the refugee camps in Jordan and they can not access to Palestine, we were having our own land which were stolen by the building of the annexation wall on it and now we have nothing.

Zionism’s 19th century birth in 1895 founder  Theodor Hertzel wrote “We must expropriate gently the private property on the state assigned to us. We shall try to spirit the penniless population across the border by denying it employment in our country”.

David Poen gurion, the first Israeli prime minister wrote “ we have come and have stolen their land…….we must do everything to ensure they never do return”.

We raise two questions and keenly wait for an answer. How long Israel will be above the international law? Why are international laws applied to some countries and not applied to others? We think it is a shame on the honour of the international community to keep on turning a blind eye of what Israel is doing against the Palestinians. there must be a limit for this satanic and monacratic state deterning it from premediately violating the international law.

Finally, We are in a quest for a world that holds on the truth, stands by it’s words and side by the just and internationally-recognized rights of the Palestinians. On our side, the day of Nakba will remain embedded in the Palestinian consciousness. A historic fact, it represents an appalling injustice but inspiring our resolve to keep on struggling for liberation, independence, peace and just redress, nothing less.


About Saeed Amireh

My name is Saeed Ibrahim Amireh, I am 18 years old and I have been born and raised in Ni'lin, in the Westbank. During the summertime, I love to sleep on the rooftop of our house. When I see the beautiful stars, I dream to travel to far away places and meet people from all over the world. I can see the Mediterranean Sea from our roof. Often, I imagine what it is like to be at the beach and see the sun go down. I have never been to the sea because Israel does not allow us to go there. One week before the final exams in 12th grade, Israeli soldiers raided our house in the middle of the night, locked the whole family but me in a room, beat me, destroyed my room and arrested me. I was in jail for 4 months. They kept me in a small cell in complete darkness, with mice and cockroaches everywhere. They beat, threatened, and interrogated me constantly. To this date I know nothing about why they even arrested me, other than to punish my father for his non-violent activity in the "Popoular Committee Against The Wall". I've always dreamt to study and become a communication engineer. But since my father is in jail, me and my older brother have to work and take care of our mother and our small siblings. I miss my father so much, I would give anything for him to be free. But I am not even allowed to go and visit him in jail. Only my mother is allowed; she could go visit him for the first time after he was imprisoned for 4 months. Like all the villagers of Ni'lin, I wish I could taste the flavour of freedom just once.

    Saeed, your father is right. Western governments allow/support Israel no matter what it does to the Palestinians. But also, today Robert Fisk wrote and put into words what has given me a lot of hope: “Obama says no Palestinian state must be declared at the UN. But why not? Who cares in the Middle East what Obama says? Not even, it seems, the Israelis. The Arab spring will soon become a hot summer and there will be an Arab autumn, too. By then, the Middle East may have changed forever. What America says will matter nothing.” (The Independent/UK)
    We, the people, still hold the power when we resist.

    I had been wanting to know if you ever considered switching the page layout of your site? It is very well written; I enjoy what you have got to say. But maybe you can add a a bit more in the way of written content so people could connect with it better. You have got a great deal of wording for only having one or two photos. Maybe you can space it out better?
