Map of Israeli land conquest in 1948
Al Nakba 1948 (map not including Occupied Territories)
By military conquest, expulsion and massacres, the conquered land became 20,500 sq. km (78% of Palestine)
Now the remaining 22% is under the longest occupation in the world
This map is part of a complete presentation on the Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine compiled by the great Salman Abu Sitta of the Palestine Land Society. http://www.plands.org/
We must not forget, this land was inhabited by another people. It was not empty, they had their own society, agriculture, language, customs.
It was a land that was ethnically cleansed of its people. That ethnic cleansing is still going on to this day. Are we going to sit here and let it continue as if we don't know about it?
