Packaging Nakba

From Soccer Dad:
The earliest reference I can find to the term "Nakba" (or "Naqba") in the New York Times is this article, from Israel's 50th birthday, a decade ago.

So for 50 years, the NYT didn't see fit to use the term to describe the Arab reaction to Israel's independence. It's only recently that the terms has come into widespread use.
Read it all.
