Ramallah Masons: 1925

My grandfather is standing on the left, and the man standing on the right is Yousef Cadoura, who was mayor of Ramallah from 1943-47.

Hello. Yousef Cadoura was my grandfather. I am curious to know where this picture came from and also if I could have your permission to republish it. My cousins and I are constructing a Wikipedia page about him.
