My name is Rashid Suleiman Ajjawi. I was born and raised in Lebanon. Currently I am living in UAE. My regards and best wishes to all the Palestinians spread all over the world due to the Israeli aggression against the loving people of the holy land (Including the small village of ALMA where my ancestors were born). My wish to all Palestinians out there ؟Do not forget your love to the mother land؟ and expose the criminal acts of the Israeli regime around the world. Do not rest and fight back with your possible means until victory. Salaam until we meet again in the land of Palestine ؟Our Promised Land؟.

I am from Germany. The family of my father is from Alma. I m just happy to see that there are a lot of people who care about their roots and that I now finally see some pictures of that village.
I m also glad to see that you all did not loose the spirit of free palestine.
Its right the palestanian people/Alma inhabitants have spled around the world, but I m sure too, we will return and there will be the day when Israel will not exist anymore.
The Roman empire has fallen down, the colonial English empire, Napoleon, the Osman empire, the Sowjet Union and one day America will pass away too. That will be the day when Israel falls and palestine rises.
Good luck to everybody and never forget who you are.

Alma is my grandmother's town, this earns me the right to post my poem here ;)
they took our land they shattered our dream
they also stole our self esteem
in our land they're left to dwell
when we were forced to live in a well
in a church you don't hear a bell
the mosques were silenced as well
our holy places were turned into shopping centers
in there our Gods have no more shelters
the north wind was to our good hearts shocking
it took over and no one was to its evil blocking
yet good has always been to evil knocking
one day the roots of their evil we'll be rocking
I swear by the God of the mount and the rain
my land won't stay under their rein
till the last drop in our vein
their evil will be washed away by the blood of our "feda'ein*

Wisam Atef Alchayati
from Mughr el-Khait
a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon

*Feda'ein = fighters

If the faith of the majority of Palestginian people have be refugees for more than 56 years and splet everywhere on this Planet,, Iam sure the day of our return and reunification as before of the Israeli occupation as much as far but will come, when if not my self, but my children or even garnd children come to Alma vilage to rebuild again and live happy
in peace and freedom.. It's oppotunity to greet my family and relative of Alma and all Palestinians in and out of occupied Palestine.. The main is to teach our children to love Palestine and to know it's desarve to the sacrifice. Iam looking for that day of leberation and return.. No depression, no giveup,, but determination with strong will forward to Alma and all Palestine...

Dearest and most precious people of Alma,
I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the establishment of this fabulous webpage. I have a feeling (from reading the other signiture comments) that others feel as good as I do about this wonderful website. I cried so hard when I read people's comments in the guestbook, mainly because my heart was breaking over Alma and also because I have a feeling that some of the signed guests are relatives of mine. I wish we could be living together in Alma....or anywhere in Palestine. I yern for the day I can live on OUR land and feel free. Salam everyone. Keep the faith.....we cannot afford to lose it. Palestine needs us.
