    Jaffa is documented as having existed in King David's time. Just because it has been swallowed up by Tel-Aviv's municipality does not mean that this fact does not deserve a mention. Mr. Huldai's celebrations could also have referred to Al-Manshiyyeh (a Jaffa suburb that now comprises Florentine/Dolphinarium/gigantic hotel complexes such as the King David Intercontintal and the Dan Panorama/Carmel market), or Sheikh Munis (now Tel Aviv University campus) or Salameh (now Kfar Shalem), to mention only the largest places that existed when Tel Aviv was founded and which were razed and their occupants sent to God knows where in the aftermath of the war of Independence. As it is, nothing of this is featured in the centenary celebrations. Tel Aviv's sand dunes were, in fact, already inhabited when it was founded. When the gaps in the city's history are duly filled, true healing can begin. That really WILL be reason to celebrate.
