Palestinians rally along the Rafah border terminal between Egypt and the southern Gaza Strip, on May 15, 2011, during a gathering to mark the 63th anniversary of the "Nakba" (catastrophe). Nakba means "catastrophe" in reference to the birth of the state of Israel 63 years ago in British-mandate Palestine, which led to the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who either fled or were driven out of their homes during the 1948 war over Israel's creation.
