Sorry, but Palestinian nationalism has bugger all to do with european romantic nationalism and the author should've known better than bring it under the same umbrella with Catalonia or other small european nations that aspire towards sovereignty. The latter is the reawakening of the arrested development of the european nationalist movements that started in 19th century, the former's case has nothing to do with nationalism in the western sense but everything to do with the continuous expansion of the muslim nation as a whole. The pals are not a nation but a notion used for political gains and for the destruction of the "host", of Israel.
