French Jewish groups and Israeli officials protested Tuesday after the mayor of a Paris suburb renamed a street to honor the thousands of Palestinians forced from their homes during Israel's creation in 1948 . Dominique Lesparre, the Communist mayor of Bezons, Monday officially renamed a street near city hall "Allee de la Nakba" (Nakba Lane) to commemorate the Nakba, or "catastrophe" when more than 760,000 Palestinians were expelled by Israeli forces or fled 70 years ago.Since protests along the Gaza-Israeli border began March 30, 126 Palestinians have been killed.Hamas, however, was not founded until 1987, some 40 years after the Nakba.
