It was bitter catastrophe Israel came to existence

Tehran, The anniversary of expelling hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their motherland of Palestine and formation of the fake Zionist regime on May 14 is called the Nakba Day (Day of Catastrophe).

The day reminds the Palestinians of the occupation of their land by the Zionists with support of the father of colonization and oppression, the United Kingdom.

Last year, 58 Palestinians were slaughtered, including 6 children and even one baby, and 2,700 others were injured or maimed by the Israeli soldiers. Nakba Day of 2018 was a bloody day for the oppressed Palestinians, on which the US regime illegally moved its embassy to the Holy Quds, which was severely protested by the international community.

But, as the saying goes 'the tree is known by its fruit', Washington ignored the decry of the oppressed, the international laws, and the criticism of the entire world and went on to serve its masters in Tel Aviv with its Zionistloving decision to move its embassy to the Holy Quds.

In the process of formation of Israel the most important name one can see is 'the United Kingdom'.

Following the WWI, the five victorious countries decided to divide the world among themselves. A big part of the lands in the Eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea was the share of the UK, which included today's entire occupied Palestine, a big portion of Jordan, and parts of Syria.

The UK took the first step to form the fake Zionist regime; they insisted on immigration of Jews to Palestine; they didn't let them to settle in Jordan, which further entangled the conditions. Then, British foreign Secretary Lord Arthur Balfour wrote a letter to Walter Rothschild, a Jewish member of the House of Commons, to announce UK's positive approach toward formation of 'a national home for the Jewish people' in Palestine. The letter became known as the Balfour Declaration.

The Zionists carved the Mandate of Palestine, not just the land in between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and thought the division was unfair (!). The UK has plans for the Middle East.

As time passed, the conditions in Palestine deteriorated. After the WWII, the conditions got much worse, which rooted in assaults on UK civil and military officials and strategic facilities. The pressure from the Jews who survived the world war and their horrifying organizations made the UK reveal its clandestine conspiracy for the Mediterranean Middle East.

The UK announced that it was going to put an end to its mandate over Palestine and transferred the power to the United Nations, which was just a guise. The depth was Judaization of the Arab Palestine to create a fake regime.

On November 29, 1947, the UN, in Resolution 181, agreed to break up Palestine into two parts. The plan was clearly proposed by London. Jewish leader, like Jewish Agency, accepted the proposition with no hesitation, since they were gaining a lot, but the plan was not welcomed, by the Palestinians, who were to lose half of their lands. They didn't agree to negotiate about that.

The resolution put a big part of the Holy Quds, including Bethlehem, under international forces. Arab neighbors of Palestine also disagreed with the plan.

Desperately, the Arab who felt the pain of losing their motherland made a move and started to fight with the Jewish guerillas. The UK mandate ended on May 15, 1948 and the previous day, Israel was established. Right after that the Arab neighbors of Palestine attacked Israel; therefore, the plan to disintegrate Palestine was never done.

Unfortunately, when issuing the ceasefire agreement, the warring parties didn't mention the independent country of Palestine; it was divided between the Zionist regime, Egypt, Syria and Jordan, which gave the Zionist regime the chance to attack the land under the mandate on the west of Jordan River and the West Bank and occupy 26% of that. Jordan occupied and annexed 21% of the land under mandate.

Jordan occupied Eastern Jerusalem and the Zionist regime got control of the western parts. Egypt's part was the Gaza Strip. But the role of the UK is undeniable in the occupations; all happened under the supervision of London.

Since 1960, Palestine has always been an issue of international talks and policies. In 1988, Palestine Liberation Organization declared Palestine as an independent country, which was never taken seriously by the Zionist regime.

In 1967, before the SixDay War, there was drawn a Green Line, a truce line, between the Arabs and the Zionists, which was never respected by Israel.

In 1970, the United States replaced the UK, as the Zionists supporter and servant. The US organized a 12day long talks between Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin in September 1978 in Camp David, Egypt retreated for the president of the United States, located in Maryland, east US. The talks concerned the Palestinian territories but were done without participation of the Palestinians, which was condemned by the United Nations.

The PLO signed another agreement with the Zionist regime in 1993, known as Oslo Accord. The agreement aimed at dissolving the dispute between the Palestinians and the Zionists, but it was not effective due to the facts that it was repeatedly violated by Tel Aviv and it did not recognize the right of return of the displaced Palestinians.

It is noteworthy to say that the talks were secret and there is not much information about the process.

In 2001, the Butcher of Sabra and Shatila, Ariel Sharon, who had killed thousands of Arabs in midSeptember 1982, got the premiership office in the Zionist regime, which one again changed the situation.

Sharon retreated from Gaza Strip and kicked off the construction of the Israeli West Bank barrier a 681km long wall that was made along the Green Line. The wall annexes 9.5% of the total area of the West Bank to the Israeli side of the barrier. The was a source of many international criticism, but Tel Aviv paid no attention to any of them.

The protests against the construction of the wall gradually changed to an intifada, which frightened the Zionist regime. Curbing the move is a high priority for the Zionist regime.

After the Butcher had a brain stroke, Ehud Olmert became the acting prime minister and then replaced him on March 14, 2006.

It was claimed that on June 28, 2006, Hamas took an Israeli soldier prisoner. So the Zionist regime started to heavily bombard the Gaza Strip's only power plant, bridges, and roads. They also blocked the border points. Potable water was limited, power was cut, and medicine became rare.

In 2006, a clash took place between the Zionist regime and Lebanon. The Israeli attack to Lebanon was based on a claim that two soldiers had been captured and three others were killed by Hezbollah forces. The war went on for 33 days. A lot of Lebanese infrastructures were hit by Israeli weapons of mass destruction, like cluster bombs. Israel was finally defeated and had to retreat from Lebanon and agreed to a ceasefire.

The Zionist regime had from the very beginning announced that its capital was the Holy Quds. But it was internationally criticized, so they couldn't transfer their capital from Tel Aviv to Holy Quds.

In 1995, the US Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act, which required that its embassy be moved to Jerusalem. Due to its sensitivity, the presidents of the US had not enacted the law. But on December 6, 2017, to please the Zionists, President Donald Trump, officially recognized the holy Quds as Israeli capital and said he would move the American embassy to Jerusalem. The illegal move was criticized by many states. On December 18, 2017, 14 members of the UN Security Council condemned the move in a resolution, which was vetoed by the US, so a subsequent resolution condemning the US decision was passed in the United Nations General Assembly.
