Israel’s fractured memory

Are Israelis ready to include the Palestinian Nakba tragedy in their independence narrative?

From Al Jazeera

Every year while Israelis celebrate their independence day, Palestinians around the world mark the 1948 Nakba – or catastrophe – when more than 750,000 were driven out of their homes in the conflict surrounding the creation of the state. In the 65 years since, Israeli attitudes towards that event have included denial, justification and repentance. So how does today’s Israeli view the Nakba?
