I was 10 years old following the atrocities committed in Der Yaseen that my mother and aunt along with my 12 year old sister and 2 younger cousins fled In a Fiat Topolino driven by a 25 year old son of friends of the family. We joined a convoy of around 25 other cars who had secured passage from Jaffa to the Jordanian borders. I still vividly recall the scary cramped and uncomfortable trip through Jordan, Syria then to Lebanon. I have very faint memories of Shaykh Mwanis. I remember running among the orange groves, and playing around a small pond in the middle of a big porch. It is too late for me to think of going back. But I am counting on my two children with my 4 grand children will.
I see that a cousin of mine Nawal Beidas has already posted her comments in 2008.
This is the first video I could have figure out or see in the whole of my life leaving after all got exploited from their land of origin. It is so strange feeling to look into a spot where do you belong and on the other side not having the rights to live there !! Days will be fair one day.
حسبنا الله ونعم الوكيل
