My grandfather, Jawdat, became the mayor of a city in Palestine called Tantura. He took over after the death of his father. Also, Palestine needed good leaders then more than any other time in history.
Once, Palestine and Israel lived together in peace, but disputes over land brought an occupation that would last over 60 years and still goes on to this day.
In the city of Tantura, grandpa Jawdat aided citizens in trying to restore their country, but ended up getting arrested by Israeli officials during his efforts to help his people. Once he was released, he had no choice but to leave Palestine, his homeland.
