Ajami, Agami or Adjami, or however you spell its name, it's home. In spite of all.
The word "home" carries many associations. Mine is located in Jaffa (Yafo), once (meaning before 1948) "The Bride of the Sea", now a slummy southern Tel Aviv suburb.
Today a general strike in Palestinian towns, villages and the shared cities has been announced in order to commemorate the murder of the 13 Palestinian citizens of Israel by the Israeli police during the first week of October 2000:
Waleed Abu Saleh
Mohammed Khalib Khamayseh
We will join together in a silent picket line at 16.00 o'clock at Jaffa's Clock tower Square.
