The Custodian of Absentee Property. Here is an Orwellian term if there ever was one. A normal person would think that if the rightful owner shows up the custodian would hand the property back. Not so in Israel. Custodian of Absentee Property is nothing but a euphemism. In reality it means that the Zionist State steals property, which is not hers and sells it on. It happens on a massive scale. The land in the case of the Shepher Hotel belongs to the relatives of Mufti Husseini. They have shown their willingness to be reasonable, which cannot be said of a crook like Irving Moscowitz.
