The difficulty Israelis have in acknowledging the Nakba isn’t only political. [… It’s] also psychological.

This status – by Idan Gillo, in Hebrew – is a gem! It says more concisely & precisely what I have long felt but never been able to express about Jewish Israelis’ non-acknowledgment of the Palestinian Nakba. With thanks to Miri Barak for sharing it & for her brief memoir of her moment of realization. I just had to share the pictured Hebrew post, with my English translation of it.
