Nakba survivors share their stories of loss and hope

• jonathan-cook.net

Here Palestinians share their stories of displacement, loss and hope to return to their villages.Ameen Muhammad Ali's tiny store – little more than an alcove – is easily missed amid the bustle of the main thoroughfare of the market in Nazareth's Old City.His shop is a time capsule, transporting visitors to a period before the arrival of the cheap kitchenware, women's fashions and electronics stocked by neighbouring traders. Hanging outside from the awning are traditional sheepskin rugs, battered copper cauldrons and faded brass coffee pots. In a rusting bowl are hundreds of old coins of a currency no longer recognised: The Palestinian lira. Muhammad Ali, better known as Abu Arab, cherishes these relics as keenly as he does his memories of a home and way of life he lost 68 years ago, when he was 13.
