More "nakba" for Israel

Nakba means catastrophe and is usually applied by the refugees and Islam to the "ethnic cleansing" and occupation of Palestine by the Jews.  In this regard, the nakba is used against the Jews and Israel in the form of protesters trying to gain entrance to Israel by overwhelming the borders.  It was tried a few days ago and now it is being used again to mark the beginning of the 1967 war. 

It is an invasion by a foreign entity and Israel has every right to stop them with whatever means they want.  I say, if my country is being invaded by an army or people, with or without uniforms I lock and load and stand my ground at the parapets.

I trust Israel will do the same.

"It is an invasion by a foreign entity and Israel has every right to stop them with whatever means they want". So if you are invaded by a foreign entity, you can use whatever means you WANT to stop them? Zionism is the foreign entity in Palestine - it came from Europe and ethnically cleansed people who'd been there for centuries. Followed consistently, your argument justifies any act of Palestinian resistance. I wouldn't go that far!
