The Nakba of 1948: Causes and Solutions


"It is useful for Arabs, in the sixtieth anniversary of the Nakba, to go back in time and remember its impact on our ancestors who lived it, so that they would realize what our most insightful predecessors understood about the reality of Zionism, and the dangers it poses not only to Palestine but to all Arabs." (From the introduction of Prof. Walid Khalidi).
