Unlike poor Bouazizi, the Tunisian revolution icon, Hassan, was a clerk at Syrian ministry of education, though, he as all uprooted palestinians in Syria enjoyed the same civil right of the granted to Syrians, his dream was to return to Yafa, where his father and grandfather were born. . It was a dreamthat come true, Hassan Hijazi, 28, one of hundreds uprooted Palestinian who crossed the the mined Wadi Al-sarkhat, and several military fences seperating occupied Majdal Shams from Syria, he took a public bus to Jaffa in search of his parents’ former house. Hassan’s mother said that her son was determined to return and reach Jaffa while he was still studying, and even when he traveled to Aleppo to study where he remained for several years.
My friend Dr. Franklin Lamb, hopes the Nakba day may pave the way for “making some basic civil rights for Lebanon’s refugees in Lebanon.
The Israeli media described Hasssan as a “Syrian” civil servent and called him an “infiltrator”, no surprise, Golda denied the existance of Palestinians. ‘Only Jews have the right to infiltrate Arab lands’
Gilad Atzimon hit the nail, Palestinians are more decisive, firm and united than their parents’ or grandparents’ generations.
They Call it “Independence” … We Call it Nakba, thus wrote reham alhelsi, two days before nakba day.
Uprooted Palestinians (the core of the Palestinian cause), in Lebanon, and Syria marked May 15, 2011, as a turning point in Palestinian history.
Return to Palestine, is no more a right, that will never die, its now an exercise ( Return in Practice ), and what happened on Nakba day in Marou al-Ras, Majdal shams, occupied WB, and besieged Gaza, is the beginning of the full liberation, and the millions great march to Jerusalem. the countdown has begun.
Haneyya is right: Palestinians have begun to ‘bury Nakba’ forever .
A final world for our international friends: Thank for your support, the UN can’t “be trusted to grant long overdue statehood to Palestinians” Ask Arafat, ask Abbas, and ask Hassan Hejazi, who’s father spent his life waiting waited the UN to implement its 194 resolton , and finally ask Netanyahu who got the Nakba Day rallies message as an event that threatens the existence of Israel.Nothing but full liberation
“I don’t want to go back to Syria,” Hijazi added, “I want to stay here in my village, where my father and grandfather were born.
When asked what he thought of President Assad, who has ordered a violent crackdown against anti-regime protesters, Hijazi said solemnly, “He is a good president.”
In an earlier interview with Channel 10, Hijazi recounted how he made his way from the northern border to central Israel. “I saw some peace activists, one Jew and a few French Arabs, and I told them – I want to go with you – because my dream is to reach Jaffa, the city where I am from.”
