In Arabic (النكبة) al-Nakba means catastrophe or disaster, a term that summarizes what happened to the Palestinians when the Zionist forces completed the occupation of most of the Palestinian lands and they declared “Israel” as their Jewish national home on 14 May 1948.

Al-Nakba is not just a catastrophic event, or a grievous day in the life of the people of Palestine. It is long and extended chapters of injustice, cunning, settlement, aggression, ethnic cleansing, murder and forced displacement, side by side with other extended chapters of pain, memories, deprivation, refuge, resistance and dream of the day of return.In the next paragraphs, “Al Quds Foundation Malaysia” tracks the events that led to al-Nakba and investigates its results in a brief and focused manner.
