I have been looking at the online digital archives of the Palestine Museum where you can search under lots of criteria.
The museum says it has over 70,000 artifacts indexed, which sounds like an impressive number, until you look a little closer.
For example, about 7000 of those artifacts comes from a single person, a teacher named Nabīl ‘alqam, who would wrote individual Arabic proverbs on single pieces of paper – and donated the entire collection.
‘Alqam also printed out some other folktales, like this one called “The Fart.”
If you look at the oldest pieces in the collection, there are only four artifacts supposedly from before 1850.
Two of them are miscategorized. This photo of a mosque in Lod is probably from 1981, not 1081:
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
