Kahwa Lakol Al-omam (Coffee For All Nations)
In 1948, the Israeli army forced Abed’s family and other residents of Al-Walaja village near Bethlehem to abandon their homes. Despite the expulsion, Abed was determined to return and preserve his land ownership. From a small one-room home made out of wood and metal sheets to a cave that he discovered on his land and converted into a small house, Abed persisted to stay on. While in his cave, he decided to open up a coffee shop for all nations on his land, which although surrounded by settlements, was in a spot that could be reached by Palestinians, Israelis and foreigners. Through his coffee shop, Abed turned his own tragedy into a transformative project that allowed him to share his one true possession: a stunning view. But, for how long?
