Description of Broadcast:

Thursday, May 15th, 2008, commemorates 60 years of the Palestinian Nakba.
In 1948 eighty-five percent of the Palestinians living in the areas that
became the state of Israel became refugees. More than 500 Palestinian
villages were depopulated and later destroyed to prevent the return of the
refugees. Today there are a total of 7 million Palestinian refugees,
dispersed throughout the world - the largest and longest running refugee
problem yet unresolved.

60-years later, Israel continues to occupy and colonize Palestinian land
through the construction of Jewish only settlements and the Wall in the
West Bank. The Gaza Strip has been turned into one large prison. Israel
violates international law and commits ongoing war crimes and crimes
against humanity. And Palestinians abroad are the world's oldest refugee
population, making-up more than one fourth of all refugees.
