May 15th 2019 was the 71st anniversary of the Nakba – “catastrophe” when nearly 1 million Muslims were expelled from historic Palestine by Zionist occupiers. On the 70th anniversary in 2018 RO published a special report that assessed the history, the conspiracy and where Palestine and the Zionist entity stood 70 years on. We republish the full report once again on the 71st anniversary. Full report can be downloaded here.
On 14 May 1948, 71 years ago, Britain fulfilled its war time promise to the Zionists of establishing a state for it in Palestine. Three decades earlier on 11 December 1917, British General Edmund Allenby entered Jerusalem triumphantly through the Jaffa gate and reportedly declared that “the wars of the Crusades are now complete.” Allenby’s statement was a powerful reminder that the British entry into Jerusalem was a continuation of and a “successful” conclusion to the Crusades. Britain viewed the creation of a foreign body at the heart of the Muslim Middle East as a springboard for the West to gain its coveted objectives.
