During the 1948 Palestine War, an estimated 700,000 Palestinians were expelled or fled, and hundreds of Palestinian villages were depopulated and destroyed in an event referred to by Palestinians as “The Nakba,” meaning “the disaster.”

This is what happened when I tried to Google “Nakba.”

 

Other terms I can’t Google:

Malcolm X

Palestinian Liberation Organization

Arab Spring

Tariq Ali

Hamas

…and the list goes on in that vein. Does anything like this ever happen to you?
