PA daily accuses Israel of “having stolen” land in 1948 “through killing and destruction”

"Citizen Yusuf Muhammad Mahmoud Nassar zealously preserves a few old pages in an ancient-looking suitcase, as though someone was waiting for an opportunity [to grab it], fearing that it will be lost – which might lead to the loss of his last shred of hope for restoring his land, which was seized by the occupation after the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe”, Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) which befell our people in 1948… By means of these documents, citizen Nassar once again proves his ownership of his family's land in the occupied Al-Za'aq region, within the 1948 borders. By means of them, he responds to the claims of the foreign occupation, which argues that it owns these tracts, having stolen and taken them by force from their original owners, through killing and destruction."
