PA daily refers to Israel as "the '48 territories"
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Aug. 29, 2012

 
PLO Ambassador to India and regular columnist for official PA daily Adli Sadeq:
     "I heard what Issam Makhoul, a senior member of the Israeli Communist Party, said… about the chances of an Israeli attack on the Iranian nuclear project, on a program called 'A View From Within', produced by the Arab Al-Arz company in the '48 territories (i.e., Israel), for PA TV… Ten months ago, Issam Makhoul was pessimistic about the satellite channels 'that brainwash and program [one’s] consciousness', yet these are the very channels that broadcast pictures of our people's resolve and their rootedness in the '48 territories (i.e., Israel)… My interest in what Makhoul says comes from the respect I have for his struggles and for his comrades in the '48 territories."
