"It is important to note that the events are taking place on the day Israel was established. The struggle is not about the '67 lines but about the very existence of Israel =חשוב לציין שהאירועים מתקיימים ביום כינונה של מדינת ישראל. המאבק אינו על קווי 67' אלא ערעור על עצם קיומה של ישראל." - Netanyahu// The fact is that Nakba Day is on May 15th, not exactly the date of Israel's establishment which was the 5th of Iyar, May 14th. Both dates have to do with the end of the British Mandate (on midnight between the 14th and 15th). The Palestinians are mourning their loss of homeland and independence, just as Jews still mourning the loss of national independence in antiquity on Tisha b'Av. Why does Netanyahu need to lie? I guess it is his nature; a salesman is not concerned with truth but with what sells.
