Some readers have looked here for a 2008 link to MIT-EJMES on the Palestinian Naksa guest edited by Leila Farsakh

Unfortunately, the journal (conceived by Maha Yahya ahead of her time) is now defunct.  I did find a PDF of the issue, which you may now download.

This theme issue of the Electronic Journal for Middle Eastern Studies is titled "Commemorating the Naksa [calamity], Evoking the Nakba [catastrophe]", and it is edited by Maha Yahya.Contributors include Alain Gresh, Islah Jad, Leila Farsakh, Salim Tamari, Ilan Pappe and several other accomplished scholars and writers. The sober, thoughtful contributions emphasize the lived experiences of the Palestinians.
