I can not find the town which my family have been ethnically cleansed from?

If your town was destroyed in 1948, then please scan the complete listing of destroyed villages first. If you are still can not find your village, then most likely your village has not been destroyed by the Israeli gangs in 1948, but though mostly ethnically cleansed (for example Abu Goush, Jerusalem). Also your village could be listed under a different name than the name we are listing, this has been the case for twenty plus destroyed villages. If that is the case, please consult the district's map , and by try to locate your village relative to it's district main city.

Why PalestineRemembered.com has been founded?

PalestineRemembered.com is a non-profit organization whose main objectives are the following:

  • To emphasize that the CORE issues of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict are the DISPOSSESSION and ETHNICAL CLEANSING (compulsory population transfer for political gains) of the Palestinian people for the past five decades. In our opinion, the conflict would have been on the same level of intensity EVEN if both parties where Jewish, Muslim, or even Christian.
      
  • To preserve the memories and the experiences of Palestinians around the world, especially the 726,000 Palestinians refugees who were ETHNICAL CLEANSED from their homes, farms, and business as a result of the 1948 war and in its aftermath. Currently, the dispossessed refugees number 5.9 million who constitute the mass majority of the 8.2 million Palestinians spread all over the world. On the political front, so far their voice has gone unheard, and we at PalestineRemembered.com hope to amplify their voice in cyberspace. 
     
  • To create an easy medium to present, document, and share experiences among the Palestinian refugees. All ethnically cleansed Palestinians visiting PalestineRemembered.com can attach their stories, memories, pictures, movies, music files, chat on message boards, directory service, and URL links to each listed town, click here for sample of what has been shared.
     
  • To provide a convenient and comprehensive source of information about the past and present INJUSTICES committed by Israel and the Zionist movement against the Palestinian people. In this website, you will be exposed to detailed description of every village (over 420 currently listed) that was ethnically cleansed, looted, and destroyed by the Israeli Zionist forces in 1948. This description will include PICTURES (both before and after 1948) of each destroyed village, the current status of these ruined towns, a brief history of each village before and after 1948, detailed accounts of the ethnic cleansing and destruction of each village, and, above all PERSONAL ACCOUNT from the Palestinian refugees themselves.

What are your future plans for this website?

We are looking forward to expand our service to include the following :-

  • Document the cities & villages that are still standing, but the mass majority of their inhabitants have been ethnically cleansed.
  • Document all Palestinian refugee camps in the middle east.
  • Document all the illegal Israeli settlement in Palestine.
  • Provide a mirror website in the Arabic language.
  • Provide a mechanism for people to build their family tries online & associate these family trees to each of the towns.

If you have any documented data in either English or Arabic, please do not hesitate to contact us, and we promise to start working on publishing the missing data as soon as possible.

Adopting The Dome Of The Rock as logo might be offensive to Palestinian Christians? 

Often we receive such complains that The Dome Of The Rock might be offensive to Palestinian Christians or it might portray the conflict in the Middle East as religious conflict.  The reason for adopting such logo is as the following:

  • The Dome Of The Rock for Palestinians, Muslims & Christians, is a symbol more than a religious icon. We often compare it to the Statue Of Liberty for the Americans.
  • Often Palestinians, Muslims & Christians, proudly display The Dome Of The Rock in their houses, offices, & computer screens. Such emphasis on The Dome Of The Rock is usually done to assert Palestinian nationalism. If displaying such symbol is religiously motivated, then the Palestinians are better off displaying al-Aqsa mosque instead since it's the  al-Aqsa mosque which is holy & not the The Dome Of The Rock.

Why not display advertisement?

We have decided to make this website (at least for now) an advertisement free zone. We like to take advantage of every available bandwidth to serve you better & faster.
