Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Oct. 11, 2011

 
     "The Director of Culture in Jenin, in cooperation with Al-Quds University… marked National Heritage Day yesterday under the slogan, 'Folk Tradition in the Eyes of Palestinian Women'.
District Governor of Jenin, Qadura Musa, expressed his appreciation for the cooperation between the [PA Ministry of] Culture and the university, demonstrating that our institutions emphasize their maintaining of heritage, which means maintaining identity and the land. He added that the presence of our people within the '48 territories (i.e., inside Israel) proves the profound connection between the members of a single nation in the Carmel, in the Galilee, and in the Triangle, who have maintained their heritage, their identity and their history, which the occupation tries to steal and to erase."
