PA daily op-ed: Palestinians are "the first people in the history of mankind"

Headline: “The memory of the Nakba is itself a rebellion”
Excerpt from article by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily and member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza
 “I feel great pride in being a Palestinian. I belong to the people with the most just cause in the history of mankind, and the one in which the injustice is the clearest. Is there any greater injustice than our people suffering these 67 years from a tragic sin… that is the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel), in its deep and comprehensive meaning, when the strongest of the strong in the world conspired in order to occupy the homeland of the first people in the history of mankind.”
