Dhahir Al Omar (also Shaikh Dahir Al Omar) 1689-1775 was the governer (Multazim)of Al Jalil, the Northern part of Palestine during the Othmani Period. The City of Acca was his capital. Daher al Omar was captured and excuted by the central goverment for disloyalty and replaced by Ahmad Al Jazzar who was born in Bosnia in 1720 and became the Coverner of Al Jalil and died in Acca

استشهد محمد حسن بكري( ابو حسن)ب12/5/1948 على اسوار مدينة عكا وقد لبى نداء الوطن ... وتوجة سيرا من قريتة البعنة الى مدينة عكا التى احبها ليدافع عنها . وفعلا استشهد فوق بوابة عكا الجنوبية الشرقية ( فوق بناية المحكمة القديمة ) التى تجاور مرقدة اليوم ( مقبرة الشهداء او مقبرة النبي صالح علية السلام ) . وسميت المقبرة بمقبرة الشهداء نسبة الى الشهداء الابرار محمد جمحوم وفؤاد حجازي وعطا الزير اما الاسم الثاني لكون وجود مقام النبي صالح علية السلام في هذة المقبرة ( ويقال قبرة ). وجاهد حتى نفدت ذخيرتة ليتمكن رجال الهجاناة من قتلة . يحكى انة وفي هذة الموقعة استبسل الشهيد والحق الكثير من الخسائر بالجماعات المهاجمة لمدينة عكا وهذا على لسان شهود عيان عرب. اثبت ان من قام بدفن الشهيد محمد حسن بكري المرحوم عمر الملك ابن مدينة عكا اناذاك وتقديرا لهذا الشهيد دفنة لوحدة ..... وعندما هدأت الامور توجة اخ الشهيد علي بكري وزوجة الشهيد مع عمر الملك وارشدهم الى مكان دفنة وتعرفوا على هويتة من لباسة العربي الاصيل ( القنباز العربي ). لان زوجة الشهيد اصرت على الحفر من جهة القدميين وحفرت وتأكدت من جثمان الشهيد. معروف عن الشهيد انة رجل شجاع ومقدام ووطني من الطراز الاول .... ربى اولادة وعلمهم حب الوطن فأنجب بواسل امثالة ونخص بالذكر ابنة المرحوم حسن بكري ابو محمد والد الدكتور محمد بكري رئيس مجلس البعنة السابق وابنة المرحوم قاسم بكري والد الدكتور محمود بكري واحمد بكري قيادي في الجبهة الديمقراطية وجمال بكري ابو الوطن احد مؤسسيي التجمع الوطني الديمقراطي في منطقة الجليل ومن بين احفادة الممثل محمد بكري الدكتور عبد السلام بكري والدكتور هشام بكري والصحفي قاسم بكري صاحب جريدة صوت البلد والكثير الكثير من احفادة من نخب هذا الشعب العظيم .... بالاضافة لعائلة الشهيد ال بكري العريقة والمشهود لها من قبل ابناء شعبنا كعائلة وطنية .

Salamat all

I'm a doctoral student at SOAS in London, working on education in mandate Palestine. I am trying to find out who would have been the principal at the government secondary school in Acre during the late 1930s / early 1940s, and wondered if anyone here might be able to help! I also wonder if anyone knows whether Emile Habibi was at this school in Acre - I'm pretty sure he was, but haven't been able to find definite confirmation.

Many thanks indeed for any light you are able to shed!

All best wishes

I recently discovered that the JNF-KKKL "Australia Park" so-called ...is located on all but totally erased/cleansed village of Mi'ar. As an australian taxpayer, I find this extremely offensive and wonder how many Aussie diaspora Jews are even aware of the history of the regions original inhabitants?? Salaams. Abu Zaki

I've traveled all over the world and was lucky enough to visit in many amazing cities and places on this planet ,but I could tell you this: there was no place like this breathtaking city of Akka,eventhough kinda small in size and space ,it still provides you with enourmous feelings of greatniss of ancient histories of great people,that still are even to date,the ancestors of the palestinian sailors,that ruled the see and inhabited the land of palestine...I was even overwhelmed by the friendliness and the hospitality of the people in the old section of Akka

My name is Ahmed Saleh Ahmed Ibrahim Essa Saleh Abdullah Ahmed Al-Akki Al-Bathish. In Arabic (أحمد صالح أحمد إبراهيم عيسى صالح عبد الله أحمد العكي آل بطحيش). My family is originally from the city of Acre (Akka). My grandfather fled to Lebanon in 1948. In the 1950؟s, my father moved to Saudi Arabia where he acquired the Saudi citizenship. I was born in Saudi Arabia (1963), and have been living there ever since, but my heart and mind is always with my home land Palestine and my home city Acre (Akka). I can only pray to God that one day I would be able to return back home. I am trying to relocate any of my family members still living in Acre (Akka). If you think you are related to my family in any way, please contact me on my e-mail; ahmed.al-akki@riyadbank.com. God bless you all.

i've been missing akka big big time and miss the places i grow up in the old city of akka (near al-fanar,haret al-ma'aleek)..a friend of mine told me that most of the old city is near empty since our cousins are forcing and chasing each and every arab out of the old city so it remaines for the tourists only and that's very very sad.
just let me tell you something guys: i've been to so many places around the world but i've never ever seen a better place than AKKA...akka is your first childhood love you'll never forgett,it's your best hommos you'll ever eat,it's your best argeely you'll ever smoke and it should be your most peacefull grave you'll be laid to rest ....and we idiots are wasting our lifes in the west thinking that we're going the right way.allah akbar.

Dear Fellow Palestinians and Akkawi:
I am trying to reconstruct my family history. My grandfather, Philip Hassoun, was mayor of the city of Acre- or so I was told when I was little, but I cannot seem to find any evidence- can anyone verify this and the dates for me? Can you help? Also, our house in Acre that was taken by the Israelis is supposedly a Jewish School now- how can I verify that fact? Also, is there any archive of Ottoman land deeds for Acre and Haifa? My father was the Secretary of the City of Haifa and the District Food Contoller of the Gallilee, and part owner of Abu Cristo's restaurant. What has become of his restaurant now in Acre? My father was exiled in 1952 and my grandparents in 1949. Unfortunately, they are dead now and I have waited too long to start writing the family history- but maybe others can help.

Shukran,
Rosina Hassoun, Ph.D.

Salaam Aleikum!

I have visited Acre (Akka), but unfortunately it was as a baha'i (I was a member of that cult.)
While there, we were very resticted as to what we could visit. They wanted us only to visit the baha'i help properties. We were never allowed to interact with Palestinians.
I have grown to HATE baha'i, and want to learn more about the THEFT of Arab land by baha'is to build their gardens in and around Akka and Haifa.
I do know that Shoghi Rabbanni was a strong ZIONIST, and fully supported zionist occupation of Palestine.

Peace to all of you. I am so proud of this site and many others dedicated to keeping the memory of our Palestinian cities and villages alive in our hearts and minds. I am a second generation Palestinian born as a refugee in Lebanon. My great uncle was one of the last group that defended the old city in Acre. When the city fell, he went into hiding for 10 days, then he was captured , tortured and jailed for number of years, then was eventually released . We lost contact with him as my grandfather fled Acre with the rest of the family by land and ended up in Tripoli, Lebanon. We heard that my great uncle got married and had kidds but we don't know anything more about him. My Grandmother told us the accounts of that sad day and made sure that we remembered that my great Grandfather was the Imam of AL Jazzar Masjid/Mosque and my father still remember the streets of the old city and its famous wall. Long Live Palestine A'edoun

salam to all palestinians,
i would first like to thank all those who put in a great effort to create this website, which is beautiful beyond words, and very informative. I am a palestinian girl who proudly walked through the very streets of Akkah. And i would like every palestinian out there, specifically the Akkawi's to know that your presence there is still alive, and felt within the heart. Even though i was surrounded by jews, my heart saw, felt, and heard the true arab palestinian occupants of Akkah, who's spirits continue to live there. Those who ever get the chance to go(AND INSHALLAH ALL OF YOU DO), will hear those whispers, and upon hearing it will have hope and faith that oneday with the will of Allah we can return to Akkah and all other occupied cities inshAllah... Our Akkah ancestors continue to whisper to keep these hopes alive, and they will not rest until we someday again fill the streets with our presence, as the way we should have all these years. Keep the dream alive!
Sincerely, Amaly Mohammad Kadur

I am looking for some information on St. George's Syrian Orthodox Church in Acre, Palestine. My grandfather was a priest there Father Thomas Khoury. Can anyone help me?

The right of return of victorious Palestinian refugees to their homes in their historic land of Palestine is the only guarantee for peace in the Middle East. The right of return is an issue of rights that is not dependent on the generosity of the Zionist state so-called Israel. The right of return is the right afforded to Palestinian refugees as members of the international community
Insha'a Alah the Occupation of PALESTINE will END,and will be free of the scavengers Zionist

I wish to express my heartfelt solidarity with the Palestinians and the catastrophe that has befallen them. I work and pray daily on your behalf, for one Palestine, complete.

Not just me, but righteous people the world over are with you in your epic struggle against the neo-fascist Israelis.

There are ~5 million of them, another 285 million Americans, but there are 6 billion Palestinians. In the end WE WILL PREVAIL!

Viva la intifada! Viva la Palestina Libre!

First, your web site is extremely informative and so well put together.
I appreciate the work that's gone into it, and learned a great deal from
it.

I realize that in the midst of all that is transpiring in your part of
the world an email from someone like myself who is trying to locate
their possible remaining famiy in Acka, my inquiry may seem frivolous.
Please understand that I'm trying to make a connection with someone via
your web site who would be willing to answer questions about how I go
about researching my grandfather's family in Acka. I use that spelling
because that's what he entered on his immigration papers in 1914. His
name: HANNA HAMAM, b. Acka in 1878. His parents were Kahlil and Eva
HAMAM. He was Christian, and married FAREEDI MOUBAYED, probably
sometime around 1908, most likely in Lebanon. Fareedi's parents were
HANNA MOUBAYED and FOHMIA SAIEGH.

Please know that I'm not asking anyone to do research, but rather simply
want to know if anyone there is willing to respond to this email letting
me know that they would be willing to answer some questions about tribe
names in Acka, names of churches, cemeteries, and where/who I might
contact to find out if there is anyone remaining there who may be part
of the HAMAM or MOUBAYED families.

Thank you.

I love you Akka so much ......we will never give up our right to return
Best regards to those who worked and build this site
Posted by Um Ahmad on MAY-8-2002 #1915

Mashallah, what a wonderful site (tribute) to Akka.

It is not acceptable to just obtain a right of return to only "West Bank" and "Gaza". Until we can return to Akka (and all "1948 lands"), it is not over. We are no less Palestinian then Gaza and West Bank. Yaba, I didn't forget!

My name is mohammad ,Palestinian, living in lebanon P "my family is from Acre". My dream is that one day I, "and all those originating from acre or any part of Palestine", return back to home live and die there ,till that moment peace and love to my people outside the home land and inside it.

Within the seawalls of Akka our history was made...From the beginning when the Crusaders landed over there, sailed back to Europe from there...To try back latter on in the person of Napoleon, the head of the strongest army in the world, who then failed and sailed...Akka should be a sacred place because of the marytyrs who were killed or hanged by the British Occupation who paved the way for our destruction and suffering...All the invaders will go and the rocks and seawalls of Akka will stand there embracing the waves of the Medetaranian...

Hi,

My name is Shadi, am half Bosnian and half Palestinian "my family is from Acca". My real hope is that one day I, "and all those originating from Acca, or any part of Palestine", will soon be able to visit our town without passing through terrorist؟s securities! I wish all the best to all the Palestinians still living there "God be with you"!
