Palestinian children, some of them holding symbolic keys representing the keys to their homes snatched when the state of Israel was created, attend a rally to mark the day of "nakba" or the catastrophe on May 15, 2011 in the Israeli occupied West Bank city of Nablus. Across the West Bank and Palestinian territories rallies are taking place to mark the 63rd anniversary of Israel's creation which resulted in more than 760,000 -- estimated today to number 4.7 million with their descendants -- being pushed into exile or driven out of their homes in the conflict that followed the Jewish state's establishment in 1948.
