As the 67th year of remembering the Palestinian Nakba steadily approaches; the Palestinians have and continue to be permanently trapped in enduring the reinforcement of the Nakba not only by the so called 'Jewish' State but by the 'Islamic' State.
The Nakba also known as the 'catastrophe' signifies the ethnic cleansing and the incremental genocidal process that occurred against the Palestinians by the State of Israel in 1948 which caused the dispossession and displacement of 750,000 Palestinians from their ancestral homelands; forced to settle in refugee camps such as Al Yarmouk in neighboring countries of Syria, Lebanon and Jordan as well as the camps for the internally displaced within what are known as the occupied territories of 1967 of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Notwithstanding the fact that the Nakba or the incremental genocidal policy of slow violence and ethnic cleansing continues to this day by Israel through bureaucratic and military means such as the latest assault on the Gaza Strip known as Operation Protection Edge; the Palestinians have been subjected to the same circumstances with the emergence of the so called 'Islamic' State. Given that the Palestinians have been scattered across the deserts of Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein following the occupation of Iraq by United States and British forces; they have also been repeatedly dispossessed and displaced by the Islamic State across the territories they have taken control of inside Iraq. 
The situation in Syria further demonstrates this permanent and consistent state of dispossession and displacement against the Palestinians that has now taken place more profoundly with the latest take over developments by the Islamic State of the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk. In addition to the latest renewed Nakba; some Palestinian factions are dragging themselves and interfering in the internal affairs of the conflict situation; thereby further alienating the Palestinian refugees and the overall Palestinian cause with the violation of the traditional Palestinian stance or protocol of non-interference.
Last but not least, the international law regime is enabling and facilitating the Nakba and plight of the Palestinian people even further towards permanent potency and toxicity. The Palestinians unlike any other refugees in the world fall under the United Nations Relief Works Agency (UNRWA) as opposed to the Syrian refugees for example who fall under the mandate of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Such judicial terrorism has placed Palestinian refugees in a precarious legal black hole due to the Stateless status that they have been defined under as opposed to refugee status that would have an international legal right of return therefore falling under the mandate of the UNHCR. The discriminatory treatment by international law against the Palestinians have kept them vulnerable particularly in times of renewed Nakba's as was demonstrated with those who tried to flee to Syria and into Lebanon.
The Palestinian Nakba by the State of Israel was perpetuated and made possible after the infamous Sykes-Picot agreement that divided the Middle East region into British and French colonies; leaving Palestine a British Mandate promised to be transferred to the Zionist movement as per the Balfour Declaration. Almost seven decades later, Palestinians remain in diaspora, dispossessed and colonized and have experienced countless renewed Nakba's with the emergence of groups like the Islamic State that are also perpetuated by the Sykes-Picot Agreement.
Given the direction in which the region is heading with the self-imposed genocide and the self-destructive nature of the political situation; it is distracting the world from the incremental genocide and slow violence that the Palestinians have and continue to endure. Developments such as the recent events in Yarmouk are a reminder to the world of the importance of remembrance-remembering 67 years of dispossession and diaspora of the Palestinians while the Nakba continues. Most importantly, it is about remembering that the words Never Again remains to be a continued fantasy.
