The subject of the current issue of Jadal is those Palestinian cities that were seized during the Nakba in 1948 and in which a Palestinian population remained; namely, Jaffa, Lydda, Ramle, Haifa, and Acre. These cities are given various designations, of which the term “mixed cities” is one of the most prevalent among their Palestinians residents today. The majority of the Jewish residents of these cities, however, regard them as Jewish cities.
