Headline: "Arab-American University celebrates graduation of its eighth class of students"
     "Dr. Muhammad Shtayyeh, head of the university's Board of Trustees and representative of President Mahmoud Abbas, at the graduation ceremony… added: 'On your behalf I would like to tell [Israeli PM] Netanyahu that Al-Quds is not Jerusalem, that Ahmad is not Solomon, that Nablus is not Shekhem, and that Ariha is not Jericho. It makes no difference how much you forge history and geography: The land of Palestine will remain Palestinian and Arab. A plant from Brooklyn will not survive in Palestinian soil. We are the children of this land; we were hewn from it and we shall return to it."
