"Nationalism is a human illness. When the religion bug is added, the disease becomes metastatic. Before we can realize utopian visions we have to bring the “peoples” back to history. To get rid of the nationalism disease, you have to develop it and then recover from it. The path to recovery is the establishment of two separate national entities. We could start by neutralizing the religious virus of Jerusalem. This demon should be corked in a bottle."
Salman Masalha, Haaretz (6. Mai)
