The occupation bet on the factor of time and the division of the Palestinian ranks and on Arab betrayals and dirty deals to obliterate the Jerusalem and Palestinian issue in the minds and hearts of the new generation, but today's reality lies its expectations, to be surprised by a Palestinian generation inside and outside the Green Line, its awareness and action has become fiercer as it prepares for the next battle # Palestine
