    OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, ARAB CAPITALS (PIC)-- PIC correspondents reported on Friday that more than a million Arab people rallied on Friday in support of the Palestinian cause in Palestine and a number of Arab countries.

    Our correspondents reported that the largest such rally was the one held at the Tahrir Square in the Egyptian capital Cairo.

    Participants in the Tahrir Square rally started gathering there before dawn and the rally culminated at the Friday prayers in the afternoon. Participants called for opening the Rafah crossing, and called on the Palestinian resistance not give up armed resistance. They called for Egyptian national unity and not to fall in the trap of those who are trying to sow discord between the Muslims and the Christians.

    Similarly, huge demonstrations took place in Lebanon and Jordan to mark the Palestinian Nakba (catastrophe) in 1948 when Israel was created for immigrants from Europe who uprooted the indigenous Palestinians from their land, committed around 70 massacres and destroyed over 500 Palestinian villages in the process.

    Meanwhile, Palestinians in 1948-occupied Palestine, marked the Nakba anniversary at the same time the Israelis marked what they call “independence”. Activities marking the anniversary will continue.

    Marches towards the borders of occupied Palestine will take place on Sunday prompting fears of the occupation government that matters can get out of control.

    The Arabs in the surrounding nations should really do more to help the Palestinians. Hopefully, with the Arab Spring this is a result
