Palestine Video 1880 – 1947

Slide show on You Tube of Palestinian urban life from 1800 to 1947.

When you reach 1939 this is the photo of Sameera Buderiri on her engagement day.
The old lie that Palestine was a dry desert waiting for a people is just that - a lie.
This clip allows people to see the beauty of the Palestinian people before they were
ethnically cleansed and murdered and made into refugees by the State of Israel.
Music by Joaquin Rodrigo, lyrics Helmut Lotti, sung by Lotti.

It is impossible not to be moved by the evocative images of Palestinian society in
happier times when people lived and loved in freedom.

The man-made catastrophe that decimated that society in 1948 is still ongoing today
as Israel reduces the Palestinians to a sub-human existence under its savage and
merciless military occupation.
