Goodbye - and Good Riddance?

What does this imply for the so-called "Palestinian nationalism"?

Israel's security establishment has prepared for the possibility that many Palestinians would arrive at Erez, and bolstered security arrangements at the crossing.

According to witnesses, a number of Palestinians arrived at the crossing carrying suitcases, and one woman waved goodbye and yelled, "Goodbye Gaza."


(I wrote the above and then continued looking for material. Look what I found)

Ramallah residents Thursday dismissed the possibility of Hamas taking over the West Bank. In Gaza, "there are tribes and clans like in the Jahiliyyah [pre-Islam] era," said one, Qassem. "Here, in the West Bank, we're more civilized, educated. It's a different nation, not like in Gaza."
