The myth of a secular Palestine, of a secular Palestinian society, is still alive.
Although with the rise of Hamas this topos becomes eventually a cynical joke. Or an arguement to blame Israel for the nemesis of the Palestinian secular society, which – so the legend – existed.

Benny Morris recently explained, that the idea of a secular Palestinian society is not more than the dream of pro-Palestinian European leftists.
