But I don't really know what it's saying: جريدة النهار.
I can read that there's lots of references to the land, the Palestinians, the Nakba, and 1948. And somebody says that the land (presumably my family's property in Ain-el-Helweh) was the 'malika' or king of arable land in the Saida area.
But could someone tell me what's going on in the article?
The man in the picture is my uncle, pointing to land in Ain-el-Helweh - presumably ours? which has been used by the Palestinians for their camp since they fled their own homes in 1948. I know that we've been in litigation with the planet (Lebanon, the UN, God knows who) since 1974 about compensation.
Note: my father says that his father bought the property in the 1930s from the Boustany family, who had had princely villas and farms in the area, but sold out to make their fortunes elsewhere. He says it's the same Boustany brothers who developed some fancy hotel in Jounieh. Hearsay.
