PA non-recognition terminology: PA TV host refers to Israel as “the Interior”

PA TV program In a Fighter's Home visits Al-Aroub refugee camp near Hebron:
 PA TV host: "They will never succeed in pushing us to relinquish the right of return, nor will they succeed in forcing us to relinquish our land, nor will they ever be able to cause the Palestinians in the diaspora and in the Interior (i.e., in Israel) and in the refugee camps to relinquish their demand to realize their right. So the seemingly logical solution, finding expression in two states for two peoples, cannot succeed. The model of two national states cannot be implemented. So, as you can see, all the walls in the world can never make it possible to overcome the fact that the underground water reservoirs are the same, and the air is the same, and that all rivers flow to the same sea. It is impossible to overcome the fact that this land cannot bear borders within it… We are in the refugee camps, with the hope of returning to our land from which we were exiled in '48."
