Today I visited a warm and soft-spoken woman named Munira who lives with her husband Hani and their six small children on the outskirts of Mas’ha village. Hani and his family came to Mas’ha in 1948 as refugees from Israel’s “War of Independence,” which Palestinians refer to as “Al Nakba” or, “The Catastrophe.” Hani’s father was killed in the war. Left without a breadwinner, young Hani and his family were homeless for ten years. 6
