Why Do the Palestinians Not Have a State of Their Own? - By Matt Ward - http://www.raptureready.com/2017/05/09/why-do-the-palestinians-not-have-a-state-of-their-own/
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." -Joseph Goebbels (Nazi Minister of Propaganda). On Monday, May 15, the day after Jewish Independence Day, the Muslim world will commemorate a day known as Nakba Day, or "Catastrophe" Day. Nakba Day commemorates the "catastrophe" that the establishment of the State of Israel was to the Muslim world in 1948.
In 1988, Palestinian Authority President, Yasser Arafat decided that whilst the Jewish State was celebrating its Independence with joy and gladness on May 14, the Palestinian people the next day should also mark the occasion formally and solemnly. They therefore began the commemoration of their own anniversary, the Nakba. To this end he declared May 15th, the day after Israeli independence in 1948, as Nakba Day.
