May 15 1948 was the day that the Jewish people in the land of the British Mandate of Palestine secured themselves a land, through a won war, and eventually called it Israel. It is on this day too that 750,000 people who were not Jews, became refugees. This piece covers the May 15 2011 when the Palestinians in Ramahalla conducted a demonstration at the most symbolic and provocative, Qalandia Checkpoint. This checkpoint prohibits many Palestinians from entering Jerusalem where many have family and business relations. and in some cases wives and husbands.
