George asked:

Congratulation Palestinian young authors for publishing this book. i just start reading the book but i have some questions about the expressions and strange words of the stories. L for Life by Hanan Habashi why do you mean by Jaffa? it,s kind of fruit or its the name of a village? "And when exactly i am going to get my Jaffa in this coupon?" I searched in wikipedia but i didn,t understand what the writer means!

Refaat Alareer thanks for your quesiton. Jaffa is the Palestinian city of Yaffa. It was occupied and ethnically cleansed by ISrael.
