We've been through this before. There is not now nor has there ever been a nation of Palestine. There is a place in the record books where some people build the world's largest knafeh but there is no nation to celebrate this acheivement. Further, there remains a very good chance that by unifying and demonstrating a shared national perspective, Palestinian Arabs will announce the beginning and end of the national project on the same day.<quoted text> Just because Palestine is occupied doesn't mean it doesn't exist, and that we're "struggling for an identity".
And how is it bad press?
<quoted text> A lot. Lebanese hairstylists (or at least the ones you see on TV) are known for their flamboyant appearances. Being gay is almost a stereotype for them.
Flamboyant? It's typical, not stereotypical.
