Anonymous asked: in the 80s, like 1982/1983 was the telephones and phone lines in Palestine villages?
I’m not sure of the dates actually and I can’t find any sources for now , but I heard stories from my grand mother that they used to use phone and it was widely available in the 50s , and it was available less widely before specially used by intellectual Palestinians . Also, israeli occupation used to cut phone lines during Intifada as I heard stories .
As for sources ,
"In Palestine, access to the Internet started as early as the mid 80s. As a matter of fact, Palestine, and in particular Birzeit University, was the first in the region to connect to the Internet."
for now I couldn’t find any but this article “Our Story with the Internet in Palestine By Mashhour Abudaka” so accordingly phone lines should’ve been in Palestine before that .
When I find more regarding this , I will post it .
Anonymous asked: As a british person born after WW2 please know that millions of britains are horrified at what happened in Palestine, that we apologise from the depths of our being for the decisions of 1947 and that our hearts are with you for a Free Palestine. Every day we know you are provoked by Israeli government soldiers and the injustices are ignored by the U.S.A.
Balfour promise and British Mandate were a huge factors that lead to israeli occupation, I always hear from the people in Palestine that we one day should have an official apology from the British government -I think that this won’t happen at least before a fully free Palestine. - but at the same time we understand that the people of Britain are not guilty for what governments do as we see also lots of solidarity from you . Thank you !
Anonymous asked: Salam! I don't think you understand how awesome your blog is!! It means a lot to see pictures from MY country when I have never been there (neither have my parents). But we know our history like the back of our hands and we try to do everything in our power to help our brothers and sisters in Palestine. You are always in our dua and keep up the good work. You make us proud <3
Thank you so much for this it means a lot for me . Sorry that I have not been posting lately because I’ve just started in Med school so I didn’t have much time but will start soon again :)
tiburonasuelta asked: Thank you so much for this blog. My grandparents were forced to leave in 1948 and they eventually made their way to Latin America and started a family there. But I constantly struggle with my identity because part of me knows I may never see Palestine, but the other part cherishes the stories my family has told me of their life and time there... it is great to put images to my thoughts :) thank you :)
This blog is the least I can give to our dear Palestine! Thank you for following .
Holding on to our culture and families past is a step towards a future for us in a freed Palestine . Keep it and share it :)
