I was doing a little web surfing and came across Ain Zhalta site.
It is so nice to be able to "go back home" by way of internet. I found the site fabulous, not only by design but by contents..
It captured my spirit and values dear to home.. I felt surrounded with warmth and comfort and made me feel that the older I get the more I appreciate the beauty of Ain Zhalta.
Well I just want to thank you for your effort in this web site.. it is really a special and nice site for those who are really concerned about their village..
And sure it makes people in Ain Zhalta proud to belong to such a place.. Thanks again for this remarkable site..
It really aches that our kids are deemed to grow up adopted from other countries!!
Congratulations for this site. It brought back beautiful memories.
My name is Khalil Haddad from Barouk, Ain-Zhalta's neighbours.
I have childhood memories in Ain-Zhalta where we used to spend our summers
as we have many relatives (Chakkour, Moghabghab and Haddad families).
But I would like to draw your attention that the Chakkour family is not
listed in the Ain-Zhalta's families section.

What A REFRESHING WEBSITE I FOUND! I Enjoyed the Photos and Documentaries you posted.
How disappointed I was as I started reading some of the facts and Details about the civil war.
I Found a lot of inaccuracies accounts about the Druze Actions.
It was a Reaction to the events that were initiated on them that triggered the reactions that they had.
Not to defend those reactions however, I felt it was important for the sake of the future generations of Lebanese
at large to understand that the Civil was devastating to all parties.
It is Important for us not to elaborate on the negative relationships rather celebrate the positive and
the many prosperous years and history together as a ONE Lebanese in One Lebanon!
