PA daily: Lod is an "occupied Palestinian city," Israel is "territories occupied in 1948"
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - June 23, 2011

 
     “Under the slogan, ‘Palestine is closer: Lod shall remain’, the ‘Khutwa’ youth group, in cooperation with a group of Palestinian youth from the West Bank and from the territories occupied in 1948 (i.e., Israel), held a charity performance to support the resolve of our people in the occupied Palestinian city of Lod…
Manal Taha, one of the organizers of the event… [said that Israel’s aim is] to threaten the resolve within the occupying entity, which continues through the actions of the authorities in Jaffa, Acre, Haifa, Jerusalem, and other occupied Palestinian cities. She added, ‘Through this event we hope to turn the spotlight onto the suffering of our people in the Interior (i.e., in Israel). In addition, we aim for this event to be a first step on the road to restoring the spiritual connection between Palestinians wherever they may be, by carrying out other activities in the future for these purposes. Taha called upon everyone to participate in this activity, whose aim is to energize the connection between the Palestinians of the territories occupied in 1948 and [those in] the territories occupied in 1967.”
