This Monday will mark seventy years since May 14, 1948, the day Isreal was reborn as a nation.

It's hard not to see this thread as political in light of the events happening in that part of the world. From the news I gather that the Palestinians have a different name for the founding of Israel -- Nakba, meaning the Day of the Catastrophe. This appears to indicate a very different experience that is at the heart of the unrest and deaths over there over the last few days. As I learned more about it, this matter became quite apparent to me as a political one. Since it is not the purpose of our forum to engage in political discussion, I move that we delete this thread.

I concur too. It's impossible to learn about the region and not see it as a catastrophe for the palestinians.
Best we move off this subject.
I've a jewish wife so don't bother with knee jerk 'anti-semite' name calling.

I agree with Bingley et al. I find it very hard (impossible) not to see this as political.
