KKL did, in fact, succeed in buying around 7% of the land in Palestine west of the Jordan River. What most people never research is how much land did "Palestinians" own. Fact: only about 7% of the land west of the Jordan River was actually owned by Arabs living in Palestine. Another 7%, more or less, was owned by absentee landlords living in Cairo, Damascus, Beirut and Istanbul. Any third-grader can tell you that 7+7+7=21. What was the status of the remaining 79% of the land? It was STATE LAND, belonging to no individual. Over the years I have seen dozens of "interviews" with people brandishing an antique key and claiming it's the key to the house they lived in "back in Yaffo" (or somewhere else). What I have NEVER SEEN is someone holding up a pice of paper and claiming "this is the DEED to the house I OWNED in Yaffo". I have a key from a rented home I lived in in New York 50 years ago. Does that give me a claim to being a New Yorker?
