I am fourteen and a half years old, now understanding the whole situation. 65 years of land occupation and we will not stop fighting it. I am a proud Bassawiyeh , and proud to honour my family name and my country. The peace and love is in our hearts for our dear country, and it will stay there for many, many generations to come.

To all my country men and women. Of course I mean al-Bassa. I was born in al-Bassa, was forced out, as a child, in 1948. We crossed the mountain, hiding between boulders, to Lebanon where I was raised, went to school and also to the American
University of Beirut.
I came to the United States to study where I graduated from the University of California at Berkeley and the Medical Center in San Francisco.

I moved to Nashville, Tennessee to join the faculty of the medical school in 1969, and I am still living with my family in Nashville.

I hope many of Bassawiyis can can get my e mail address and contact me so that we re-kindle the love we have had to our beloved al-Bassa.

My great thanks and gratitude to all the people who were and are still bnehind the construction of this invaluable website.

Love to all,

Dr. Abdallah M. Isa

Hello - does anyone know if the building that is still standing in the way to Rosh Nanikra /Ras al Nakora , was a coffee shop? if so do you know what was the name of that coffee shop ? who owned it? who used to sit there?

also, i read somewhere that in al bassa there were 11 coffe shops. is that true?

I am writting for a guide about this area and would like to include information about Al Bassa and Al Bassa people.

Ya Ahlan Bil Bassawiyi. It is so nice to see our large familly on this website. I have taken lots of photos and shot video when I was back there visiting in 1995 which almost got me in big trouble with the Israeli soldiers. I suppose now that we have this site I will post them here in the near future.
I would love to hear more stories on here. We need to teach our children and pass to them all the rich history of our ancestry of our beautiful village that we will never forget.

My father is from Al-Bassa and I am so happy I finally found a site where I can see pictures of my homeland. I've only ever heard about it, but to see it brought tears to my eyes. My father's family fled to Tyre from Al Bassa and now we live in montreal canada. It brings joy to my heart to hear from other bassawis who still remember our town and others like me who've never been there, but will keep its memory in their hearts forever.

Marhaba to all Bassawiyi,

I'm the daughter of both a bassawi mother and father, I live in Seattle, Washington, USA, and I'm very glad to find this site.

Someday I WILL go back to where I belong, and so will everyone who has a right to be there.

My father is from Al-Bassa and like all of you i've grown up with wonderful stories about the place.

I now live in New Zealand...thousands of miles away, but it's sites like this which remind us of our past and heritage.

Keep up the good work

I'm from al bassa, and i figured out alot of the people on this list, simply because I know the family names. God bless Palestine, We shall go back, if not now then my grandchildren will. as long as we keep the struggle going !

My mother Bassawi'ye ;O) It was so nice to see the pictures of Al-Bassa, hope You will put some more.

I am so happy to find this web site. I'm a graduate student in film and video and I will be making my thesis video about Al-Bassa and the community we have here in Toronto. My grandparents are from Bassa, I was born in Lebanon, and we now live in Canada. If anyone has information, stories, photographs, video footage of more recent trips to Bassa, or would be willing to be interviewed please contact me by email. I am also interested in the diasporic Bassa communities that gather in various parts of the world, and how the younger generations maintain their identity.

I have heard so much from my grandmother and my parents about their beautiful memories in his beautiful village, and with every picture i see of albassa, I try to relate a story to it.
We cant just let our history go.Foreigners dont know of our existance there before 1948, so lets tell them, and keep the memories alive. For all, my father is Youssef Chaer.My mother is Fahime Samara,and we live in Michigan now.

As a Bassawye married to a Bassawy living between Lebanon and Canada. this website brought warm memories of my childhood, the church where we used to live next to, and the mountains that we climbed escaping to Lebanon. God bless you for your effort and I hope I can contact many of my village friends over a muhammer dish washed down by a dip of dibs wa tahynie

I was impressed by the amount of information about Al-Bassa that I have happened to come across in this website. Keep up the good work...
Posted by Rima Habib on SEPTEMBER-30-2001 #781

My grandparents' description has clearly failed to portray the stunning beauty of Al Bassa. A site that moved us all to tears. It is vital to keep track of every little village's history and the war crimes committed in it.

Thank you for putting this up on the web.

I like to thank the Webmaster so much for a job well done, & to say: We SHALL remember al-Bassa untill the last Bassawi. yours, K.E. Ginblat, Ottawa, Canada

I wish Zionists did not take Palestine away from its people, otherwise we would have been living there with my grandparents.
Thank you for letting me see my hometowns' pictures & read about its history.
