  • Naila Atieh

    Naila Atieh Esq. passed away on July 15, 2019 after a long struggle with cancer leaving behind her Husband Rasam Jaber and Their Son Carmel. Naila grew up in Haifa and was active in the Communist party and the Democratic Front for Peace and Equality. She dedicated her life for the defense of her people facing an oppressive occupation. After law school, she worked hard to expose Israel’s practices in the occupied territories. She prepared a case against the occupation authorities for using an internationally banned type of bullet. She also filed dozens of cases against Israeli soldiers for the wanton killing of innocent Palestinians. In addition, Naila achieved a first in forcing the return of 714 dunams of land in the Jordan valley to Palestinians voiding Israeli takeover of such privately owned lands.

  • Farah family photo 1910

    My uncle, Eissa Farah and his wife Sarah in Birzeit. Behind them is my father, John Farah and I believe the two ladies are Sarah's sisters. The year must be around 1910. After Eissa and my father came to the United States, they had a small argument. My uncle Eissa saw an attorney to change his name from F-A-R-A-H to F-A-R-R-A-H adding another "R" to the family name. Aunt Sarah passed away in 1948, Eissa in 1968, and my father, John died in an automobile accident in 1973.

He was jailed by the Israelis several times and was tortured at one time for 87 consecutive days. May his soul rest in power, he passed on in 2008 and was buried in his beloved Palestine.

This famous photo of the Khoury Shahin Family from Birzeit was taken in 1940 around the time of the Arab Revolt in Palestine (1936-1939). Still immersed in the climate of the revolution, these educated members of this Arab Christian family showed their solidarity with one or more of the revolutionary Arab factions by adorning the headdresses known as Fez and Hatta and ‘Agaal.
