Sheikh Mustafa (Mustapha) El-Khairi was born in Ramla-Palestine in 1897. Studied at Al-Azhar in Cairo Egypt. Became a mayor of the city from 1920 until 1947. Died in 1950.
He looks so distinguished. I want to read the book. Thank you.
There is a great deal written about Sheikh Mustapha In the book, The Lemon Tree, by Sandy Tolan. He was universally respected, even by the British colonists who knew he was an excellent mayor. If he walked down the road people would dismount from their horses as a sign of respect to him. The true story of his family after their expulsion from Ramle is told in the above book, which is a very enjoyable read.
الشيخ مصطفى الخيري رئيس بلدية الرملة لمدة سبع وعشرين سنة بذل جهودا كبيرا لتحديث الرملة و تزويدها بشبكات المياه والكهرباء والطرق فقد كانت الرملة حلقة الإتصال بين الرملة ويافا , والشيخ مصطفى خريج الأزهر الشريف . وكان رحمه الله آخر من غادر الرملةبعد الإحتلال الصهيوني لها .
