I live in the U.S. not by choice, but because I no longer have a home in ‪#‎Palestine‬ to return to. It has been 24,693 days since my village of ‪#‎Tarshiha‬ Palestine was ethnically cleansed by ‪#‎Israel‬ during the 1948 ‪#‎Nakba‬. Today, my old village is an illegal ‪#‎Israeli‬ settlement called Ma’alot. Despite this, I will never give up; cause ‘there is nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline no matter how many times it is sent away.’

These are photos of Jewish immigrants/settlers/squatters who moved into my village of Tarshiha soon after its occupation in 1949.
