Symposium at Bir Zeit University: Zionism "invented a new nationality, known as the Jewish nation"

“The political science department at Bir Zeit University held… a political symposium with the participation of scholar Antoine Shalhat, who spoke about static and changing elements of Zionist ideology…
Shalhat said that the idea of Zionism is the establishment of a national home for Jews in Palestine and the invention of a new nationality, named the Jewish nation, and that the first to propose this was the Jewish Theodore Herzl, who spoke in his book ‘Altneuland’ about his ideas of establishing a Jewish state.”
