I've been seeing a few Arabic articles about how Israelis are supposedly hysteric with fear, bringing examples of some false reports of terror attacks and how people reacted.
One fairly funny Israeli cartoon was used as evidence of Israeli fears by a Jordanian site, complete with what is now a meme of Israelis using umbrellas and nun-chucks as makeshift defensive weapons.

The underlying theme is that Israelis are acting like frightened children while Palestinian children are terrorizing them.It is another manifestation of the honor/shame and macho dynamic, where being frightened is considered feminine and shameful. This is a recurring theme, with some Arabs posting videos of IDF soldiers reacting with what appears to be fear when something unexpected occurs.
