Memories of the Nakba are being widely reclaimed today (as the Holocaust was remembered in the 1970s). The Nakba is ours because it involves the American relationship to Israel and Palestine. The Palestinian refugee issue is central to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, which Netanyahu and Cuomo and Clinton denounce, which AIPAC is taking on in the US Congress. Bernie Sanders has mentioned the Nakba in a major speech, David Remnick mentioned it just a couple weeks back in The New Yorker, and Nakba recognition was an issue in the effort to discredit the new head of the Center for Jewish History, David N. Myers, who for his part has celebrated the recently-revived account of ethnic cleansing by an Israeli veteran, Khirbet Khizeh.
