Abstract

[…] The tragedy of Palestine and its memories left deep wounds. We lived through it by tears and blood and witnessed our lands being handed over in 1949 after the Treaty of Rhodes. Our village (Sīlat al-Ḥārithiyya) received 83,000 dūnum s from the Jezreel valley plain in this treaty by Aḥmad Ṣidqī al-Jundī—the Commander of the Jordanian Army and the representative of Jordan in the Treaty of Rhodes on 3 April 1948. According to this treaty, the green triangle—the most fertile land in Palestine—was handed over in breach of previous treaties. I have, because of these nights, wounds that are deep in the heart I saw the villagers being devastated about giving up their land, having cultivated it with corn and wheat in the Jezreel valley plain, only for the Jews to collect the crops instead of them. The Jewish gangs killed them and put the wheat in their stomach and hanged them on iron poles as an example. I saw our village fallen in military terms from 1949 to 1967; There were 5000 people and 100 rifles with 100 bullets for each.
