Young Palestinians enjoying an indoor party, Jerusalem, early 1940’s

Looking at these 2 pictures, I realized how homogeneous were the styles in cloths and hairdos in Palestine, Syria and Lebanon.

The borders were opened, even as France had mandated power over Syria and Lebanon, and the British over Palestine and Jordan.

Lebanese spent more time in Haifa than in Tripoli, Saida or Tyr.

Palestinians and Lebanese knew Damascus better than their urban cities.

We actually were One people until the colonial powers decided that we belong to created “Independent” States

And they facilitated the creation of Israel by splitting and dividing this One people.

'Squeezing in for a group photo!'
'Enjoying a nice spread!'
