Aijaz Husain?s op-ed entitled ?Peace still eludes them? (printed in the Regina Leader Post on May 31, 2008) incorrectly uses language that assumes that land was taken from the Palestinians and can therefore be returned. However, historical record shows that while the land was controlled by various entities throughout time, it was never controlled or taken from the Palestinians .
Furthermore and contrary to his statement, no Palestinian political entity, army or fighting force was defeated during the 1967 war. Therefore, alluding to a Palestinian defeat is simply inaccurate.
