Christopher Hitchens
“Arab nationalism in its traditional form was the way in which secular Arab Christians like Edward had found and kept a place for themselves, while simultaneously avoiding the charge of being too 'Western.' It was very noticeable among the Palestinians that the most demonstrably 'extreme' nationalists—and Marxists—were often from Christian backgrounds.

There was an element of overcompensation involved, or so I came to suspect.”
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir
