Chance missed by Palestinians

Published 20/11/2015

Robert Fisk writes that the "Naqba" was the "expulsion of 750,000 Palestinians by Israel". The Palestinians call the establishment of Israel by Jews the Naqba.

The catastrophe is they rejected the chance to establish their first sovereign country with Israel -agreed by the UN in 1947.
