the old history the Palestinian farmer used to gather wheat in open top wood silo’s in the” khan”.
Palestine was occupied by the Turkish invader that used to gather wheat instead of tax. From farmers
Local farmers used to feel bad about paying high ransom’s of wheat for there living for a foreign invader Instead of benefiting them self’s and there families.
Since the silo’s where open top farmers used to cover it in salt.
Turkish invader used to come and look for wheat found the salt on top and used to say “Tuz”(Which is salt in Turkish Language). In anger didn’t show any interest in it, left the farmer empty handed. This is the source of the word “Tuz” used in our spoken Arabic language.
