CJPP remembers An-Naksa

June 5th-10th marks 44 years since the 1967 War, the war in which Israel occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank, Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights and Sinai Peninsula.  Much of the current political geography of Palestine arises from the 1967 War – such as the establishment of the occupying military administration and the illegal acquisition of territory through the construction of Israeli settlements.

The Washington DC-based Institute for Palestine Studies, which publishes the excellent Journal of Palestine Studies, has published a free online resource of archive documents examining the loss of Jerusalem in 1967.  The documents include a number of first-hand accounts of early non-military and passive resistance from Jerusalem’s most senior Muslim cleric, deposed Palestinian Mayor and Governor.  Click here to view the IPS document archive and learn about an important time in Palestine’s history.
