Actually I do.

A neurotically held ancestral (real or imagined)"our lands" nostalgia fetish is a neurotically held ancestral (real or imagined) "our lands" nostalgia fetish regardless of who holds it. And yes that includes Palestinians who insist on going back to great grandpa's exact pile of rubble next to great grandpa's exact olive-tree even if it requires GPS to locate it. And Native Americans who long for a return to "their lands" were their great grandpas used to take enemy tribe's scalps. And Tibetan Buddhists who want to return to the idyllic feudalism of the Dalai Lamas - idyllic for the Lama class, not so much for the peasantry they exploited and abused.

One would hope it were the norm in the 21st century the rejection of a country specifically being Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Scientologist, Bahai, Rastafarian, Pastafarian or any other mythology based dogma. The Founding Fathers endeavored to make it the norm for the United States of America in the 18th century. I'd say they were on to something.

That would be her not "his" closing
