Palestinians activists are planning a repeat of the May 15 action where thousands of unarmed Palestinian refugees and their descendants came into Israel across three borders, from Lebanon, Syria and Gaza. Three of the demonstrators were killed. (See "16-May-11 News -- Israeli army fires on unarmed protesters crossing three borders.") The new action is planned for Sunday, June 6, commemorating "Naksa," the Arab loss in the 1967 six-day war. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) were completely unprepared for the May 15 action, but they will be prepared for Sunday's action. Jerusalem Post

Israel has warned Syria and Lebanon against permitting any Naksa-related protests near the Israeli border. The Lebanese Army has declared the area around Lebanon's border with Israel a closed military zone, "to stop any escalation at the Lebanese border with Israel that could take place on Naksa Day." Haaretz

Tensions continue to build between the Palestinian refugees and Israel. An article published by the Palestinian Authority refers to the Palestinian refugees as the new "Palestinian nuclear weapon." This weapon, according to the article, was the brave young people loyal to their ancestral homeland who do not fear risking their lives to actualize their rights to a state, freedom, and independence a weapon he described as more powerful than Israel's entire arsenal.
