Reader comment on item: The Year the Arabs Discovered Palestine [Short version]
in response to reader comment: all nationalism is superficial...even Israeli

Submitted by Michael Dar (Israel), Dec 13, 2011 at 23:34

It is a pity you started well..but got lost! Palestinian nationalism is a quite recently invented expression (for pure tactical and political purpose) of Arab nationalism which in turn is the expression of Islamic imperialism and world ambitions. Jewish nationalism or Sionism is the thousands of years old Movement of Liberation of the Jewish people. Long before the existence of Arabs or Islam.

Unlike the Jews The Fakestinians have no language of their own, no distinct-unique separate culture, never had a country (or kingdom) nor lands belonging to them , never were sovereign..and in fact have no historic, moral nor legal claims on the land. You only see Israel as an anomaly because the whole Arab-Islamic world is unable to come to terms with a Jewish state in what it consider Dar-al Islam.
