Jerusalem, the Nakba, and my mother in law

Mitri Raheb Blog

Last week was a very busy week for me. I was elected to the Palestinian national council (PNC), the Parliament of the Palestinian people worldwide. Later that week I was elected also to the Palestinian Central Council (PCC). As we members of the PNC gathered in Ramallah to reflect on the state of the Palestinian people seventy years after the Nakba and on the decision of the Trump administration to move the American embassy to Jerusalem, I got a message from my wife, Najwa, that my mother-in-law was admitted into the hospital. Although my mother in law is not young anymore, her health has been relatively stable. Other than some symptoms of Dementia, she has been healthy. Yet, her health started deteriorating last week and she needed to be hospitalized. After being given the needed medical care, my mother-in-law, Georgette, was released and returned home, still suffering dementia.
