Israel’s 60th Birthday

When is Israel’s Independence day anniversary and Birthday Celebration? by Dave

“Israel will mark its 1948 independence with celebrations across the country throughout next year[2008].” [1]

Although Israel will be celebrating its independence all year, the day of independence itself is on 14th May.  Lots of events seem to be happening around this date and throughout the year.  Including many commemorating the Palestinian Nakba (catastrophe).  It seems absurd  that Israels should celebrate a day that signifies a disaster for another people, who remember it as a time when they were ethnically cleansed and had their lands and homes stolen from them.
