A few decades on, ‘Commentary’ discovers the Nakba

Israel/Palestine
on 2 Comments

Today, Commentary has been more or less liveblogging events, with 7 posts up about ‘Nakba day’ (as they too call it). Of course, there’s little mention of the actual Nakba, but it’s very clear from their flailing that they’re very worried and want to cast these events in a negative light on Palestinians and Arabs. While they’re not looking, however, they are being forced to broach conversations and address realities that they would really not want to.

Gharib tweeted about the Commentary posts here.

    If the Syrian regime falls the Palestinian refugee issue is going to be centre stage. Will the new Syria want the Palestinians? The Iraqis didn’t.
    Where will they go? There are 470,000 of them, far more than were in Iraq ,
    and they are all Israel’s responsibility.

    A day without Hasbara is like a day without sunshine?
