Bitterlemons – Five years of the intifada – Ed. 36:
“There is only one thing that gathers people and which might draw them out into the [Jerusalem] street, and that is religion. Islam has become a new focal point, and this is true in general of this intifada. The role of Islam, both rhetorically and politically, has increased in power and allure even as the focal point of the last intifada, nationalism, has seen its star wane.”
