PA Ministry of Economy falsely claims that Israel is attempting to "steal the Palestinian national identity and heritage"

Headline: “Palestinian heritage products and popular foods attract Expo 2020 visitors”



“Visitors to the pavilion of the State of Palestine at the international Expo 2020 exhibition [in Dubai] eagerly bought Palestinian hand-made traditional heritage products and tasted famous Palestinian foods…

The national [PA] Ministry of Economy said in a statement: ‘We made sure to designate an important station for visitors in order to document the national identity and the heritage, which the Israeli occupation is attempting to falsify in order to blur their characteristics and steal them, and it is attempting to present them to the world as made in Israel.’”



The article includes a picture from the event, in which visitors are seen looking at various crafts. On the shelf on the left are wooden decorations in the shape of the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel together with the PA areas as “Palestine.”
