Secondo il Presidente Napolitano ai palestinesi si deve negare anche il diritto alla celebrazione della Nakba, la catastrofe, l'inizio della diaspora e del genocidio del popolo palestinese… Non è colpa dei palestinesi se la loro catastrofe ha avuto inizio con la fondazione dello stato di Israele!

Who’s the Terrorist?  - Da Arab MCs

One of her major series utilizes cactus. She explained its importance saying: “Cactus became a symbol of the ‘Nakbe’ (Palestinian tragedy of 1948) because it has tenacious roots and grows wherever you throw it; and that is what Palestinians do out of necessity. In Arabic cactus is called 'saber’ which is also the word for patience. And since Palestinians use patience a lot as a weapon of hope for the future. Cactus has become a symbol of resistance. It is also a symbol of the heroism and tenacity of villagers who were violently evicted from Palestine by Israelis in 1948. Since traditionally cactus is a protective fence, when in 1948 Israelis demolished and bulldozed our villages, the cactus would grow again and etch out the boundaries of family homes and plots revealing Israeli crime in graphic outline.” -Samia A Halaby on Rana Bishara, 1999.
