In 1948, a refugee from his native Ramleh Palestine, unable to finish his education and forced to abandon his family's property and possessions, all the cards were stacked against Elia Nuqul. Growing up in the ancient town of Ramleh, Elia Nuqul's sole ambition was to be an engineer. In 1948, he was beginning his studies at the American University of Beirut when his family were expelled from their home during the catastrophic War of 1948 and seek sanctuary elsewhere.

 Elia Nuqul at once gave up his studies to join them in Jordan where he immediately assumed responsibility for his family's welfare. Yet, somehow, despite this inauspicious start, Elia Nuqul managed to fulfill his early promise and become one of the most successful businessmen in the Middle East.
