Palestinian quoted in PA daily uses the term "occupier" to refer to Israel

"[Palestinian] Coordinator of the campaign 'Bring a smile with a toy or book', Ali Ubaydat…:
'We must express appreciation for those of our nation in the Interior [PA euphemism for Israeli Arabs], for their stand against the Judaization and Israelization [by Israel] and for their support for their people on the West Bank and in Gaza. For they are the ones who have held out on their lands [in Israel] and have remained as a bone in the throat of the occupier, which has not succeeded in separating them and uprooting them from the Palestinian social fabric.'"
