0202 Editor’s Notes:
[1] Lifta is a Palestinian Arab village on the outskirts of Jerusalem which was completely emptied 70 years ago during the 1948 War, and whose Palestinian occupants were never permitted to return.
[2] Land Day is an annual day of commemoration for Arab citizens of Israel and Palestinians of the events of that date in 1976 in Israel. On March 30,1976, Arab society in Israel announced a general strike and demonstrations against the decision of the first Rabin government to confiscate land belonging to Arab citizens in the Galilee. In the ensuing confrontations with the Israeli army and police six Arab citizens were killed.
[3] Al-Nakbah (literally "the disaster") is the name given by Palestinians to their defeat in the war against Israel in 1947-1948 and the exodus from their homes.
