Palestine vs. Palestinian territories:

Share

Currently, there is no sovereign state of Palestine, with its own recognized capital, system of government, etc. The Palestinian Authority (PA), formerly the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), is a body – interim in nature – which oversees civil control over the large majority of Palestinians. And in the Gaza Strip, the Hamas terror group is the governing power. While Israel has committed its support for a Palestinian state, at the moment, no such state exists, and the term “Palestine” is inaccurate and premature, largely as the Palestinians don’t meet the preconditions for statehood, such as being able to exercise effective control of the territories it possesses. Rather, Palestinian territories would be more accurate lexicon.
