Israels Independence Day celebrations are seen by Palestinians as dancing on their blood and ignoring their tragedy, Jamal Zahalke of the Balad party said Tuesday at a demonstration near Umm al-Fahm in northern Israel.
He was speaking at an event, the 16th March of Return, in which the Nakba, Arabic for catastrophe, associated with the establishment of Israel and the uprooting of Palestinians from certain villages, is commemorated.

The Israeli-Arab legislator blamed the government for the ongoing tragedy and bloodshed of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Just FYI, Patriots Day WAS April 19th, 1775 when farmers, shopkeepers and tradesmen stood on Lexington Green and faced off against troops of the greatest military power of the day. Many of them died that day.
How tragically ironic that most of the people in Boston today wouldn’t recognize a “patriot” if he showed up at one of their cheese and wine tasting parties.
If they did, however, they’d either arrest him or have him shot on the spot.
I PRAY the perps in that terror attack turn out to be some of the 66,000 Saudi “students” to whom the obama criminal enterprise has allowed preferred entry and travel privileges.
If that DOES prove to be the case, obozo’s PC friends and supporters up there got a serious and deadly lesson in the beauty of DIVERSITY and TOLERANCE.
Perhaps they will then grasp that WE ARE AT WAR with a deadly foe.
nice pictures. nice posting.
(but the State of Israel is actually over 3,000 years old...)
Good thing the Palis don't do any celebrating, dancing, trilling and handing out candy on dates like 9 11, 'cause I can find so much sympathy in my heart for 'em, now.
