    Does this qualify as a fact on the ground, too?

    That was the question. Will the land and complex be owned by Palestinians or Israelis?

    Is Israel going to steal Palestinian land and rent it back to them?

    The land is either privately owned or state land; the article doesn't say which. The complex will belong to the investors who build it; most likely Israelis, but not necessarily Jewish Israelis. A more interesting question is who is going to live there. To live in Jerusalem, one must be either an Israeli citizen or hold a Jerusalem resident card. The resident cards were given to all the Arabs in Jerusalem when Israeli liberated the city from Jordanian occupation in 1967. The holder of a resident card has the right to change it into Israeli citizenship, and a small but increasing number of Jerusalem's Arab residents have done this.

    Non cooperation with Israel has been a centerpiece of the PLO's politics since 1967, so it is likely Jerusalem Arabs who are not Israeli citizens will be pressured by the PA and various other groups not to live in the complex because it makes Israel seem more even handed than their propaganda claims, so my guess is that the complex will be rented mostly by Arab citizens of Israel.

    Do you refer to these people as Palestinians or collaborators?

    They are Palestinian citizens living in occupied Palestine.
