meaning "day of the catastrophe
" is an annual day of commemoration for the
Palestinian people of the anniversary of the creation of Israel. It is held every May 15
, the day after the anniversary of Israel's
Independence according to the Gregorian calendar and the day marks the expulsions and flight of Palestinians from their towns and villages in the face
of Jewish and later Israeli troop advances and their displacement from Palestine, and the loss of their property.
On facebook it is also being called The Day of Return
, Third Palestanian Refugee Revolution
There are several facebook pages calling for the same cause, they are created by the same group but for different countries. for example the
palestanian freedom march - Kuwait
, and palestanian freedom march - Tunisia
, theres one for Jordan, Syria, Egypt
and even France and other European countries.
The main page has over 5 thousand followers, while altogether the pages amount to over 20 thousand followers. Other claims of 300,000 followers [I
personally couldn't find that page]
On May 15, the group said, more than 1 million people will participate in a global sit-in at Israeli embassies worldwide.
The third intifada, or the third revolution calls for all Arabs to march to Israel on the 15th of May.
Friday May 13th Egyptians will march through the streets of Cairo to tahrir square to show their determination and support prior to the main march.
Sunday May 15th Egyptians will march alongside thousands of Palestinians and Gazaans towards Israel.
The main idea is to have thousands of Palestinians march to Israel calling for their homes back, they will be accompanied by activists, Muslims,
Christians, Jews(orthodox), and nationalists. They will take with them posters, banners, gas masks, first aid kits, spray paints, tents, food,
microphones and huge speakers. They will march from all borders and all sides.
Millions will gather once again in Tahrir square at the heart of Cairo but this time to call for all Arab-march toward Israel. This mass
protest will come two days prior to the actual march, as a clear message to Israel and the rest of the world that liberating Palestine is the core
cause for every Arab in the Middle East. And that restoring Jerusalem is all Arab’s sacred mission
It is nicknamed the THIRD revolution because of previous Palestinian uprising against Israel which happened twice. both with Israeli victory.
I guess thats why i couldnt find the big page, its also why they made so many different pages.
the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and a massive American-Zionist campaign have succeeded in pressuring Facebook into removing the “third
Intifada” page, source
Not only in the middle East:[FROM FACEBOOK PAGE] In response to the call of the Palestinian people for a popular uprising on May 15th, we
will demonstrate outside the Israeli embassy in London on the same day, to demand that the Israeli ambassador is expelled from the UK, in light of
Israel's continued disregard for international law. 630 followers +
In NEW YORK: We are calling on the Palestinian and Arab communities in the US and our allies to rally at the United Nations in New York
at 1 pm at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (47th and First Avenue) on Sunday, May 15th, in support of the Right of Return and the actions taken on that day by
refugees themselves. 240+ followers
Basically all over the world people will rise up and support the Palestinians, if they haven heard yet then I'm sure by the 13th they will. Israel
will have to be very careful on how to deal with this issue, they cant be aggressive nor soft. Israel will have to be very careful on how they conduct
themselves as things can get ugly very fast, this is not the 1990s, the Arabs are rising all over the middle east and Africa and they know that no
puppet leader can hold them back.
and Second Intifada
deadly confrontation between Israel and the Palestinians/PLOs/and Hamas.
this is more likely to cause a WORLD WAR because so many other Arab countries are involved, not only that but the Arabs have empowered themselves.
while this might be good it could lead them to war. I'm an Arab and i dont think its far off...
