The Ultimate Humiliation?

We all know what a huge component "humiliation" plays in the mindset of many Palestinians. They want revenge on Israel for the humiliation they feel over losing several wars, yadda, yadda, yadda.

My question: If humiliation is such a horrible thing in their culture, why is it they have no problems accepting, begging or demanding a handout from international donors like the EU or the US? They are the equivalent of the old squeegee guys who wanted to do your car windows as you entered NY from the Lincoln tunnel but would then bash your window in if you didn't tip 'em. Only at least those guys would clean your window!

What the hell do the Palestinians do to deserve one red cent of the handouts they feel so entitled to and why don't they feel humiliation over this when most of us would?

Oh, Esther but paying Jiziya is OUR duty and their god-given right.
They are not begging the are asking for what's their right.

Esther,
Have you ever read Patai's The Arab Mind? The book helps to explain the conundrum you've brought up.

Truly, Arab culture is very different from any other culture!

Of course, I'm totally against ANY handouts, humanitarian or otherwise. Call me "heartless," but any other course will serve only to fuel the psychopathic hatred which these "Palistinians" have imprinted upon their very souls.

It's hard to pass up an easy mark, and in fact, taqiya demands that they not!

humiliation is an indication of pride - or self-pride. This is a culture that destroys its own capabilities of producing food. They have no self-respect as far as being economically independent goes.

However, they do pride themselves on being good fighters. hence, the humiliation when they lost a fight, that they started, with inferior pig-monkeys!!
