It is necessary, not based on purely political issues, that we, as one people, with a destiny and a common cause, present our one history, frankly, away from the daily labyrinths in which we have been placed, in order to reach the limit that aligns with awareness and realize our situation as a people with a free concept and thought, to be able to comprehend our history.

The people who talk about despair and hope, about joy and anger, about what is good and what is difficult and complicated.
To get lost. It’s good wherever you go, it’s definitely great in Nazareth. When you walk and open your eyes – you discover wonders. Look at the thick stone walls, look for the small doors on the sides of the houses that you have to bend over to get through (so the members of the house were protected from a surprise attack). Look at the arches (some of them are clogged and their perfect shape can still be seen), look up at the hanging balconies, notice the small round windows above the large windows, designed to let the moonlight into the house. Peeked into inner courtyards, some deserted, around which lived several generations of the same family. In one of these abandoned houses
