New Leader;Jan/Feb2007, Vol. 90 Issue 1, p7
The article looks at how the Independence Day of Israel became in the Arab sector as al Nakba, the catastrophe, as of 2007. It is noted that the establishment of a Jewish state was the tragedy faced by the Arabs. According to columnist Avraham Tal, the decision in 1947 by the United Nations (UN) to divide Palestine into Jewish and Arab states, was accepted by the Jews but rejected by the Arabs. It adds that allegiances remain a more complicated issue in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
