Here is an amazing interview at Sky News on Monday between reporter Mark Austin and Basem Naim, director of Hamas’s international relations.

At the beginning of the segment, Naim denied that Hamas killed any civilians, and that it was all Israeli propaganda, as Austin incredulously asked him how he could lie so brazenly.

But one part of the interview revealed a truth that is not often reported.

When Naim was asked what Hamas' main achievement from the Saturday massacre was, his very first answer was, "We have been neglected because of the conflict between America and China, between Ukraine and Russia and our suffering for 75 years is coming out for discussion."

As I have noted for years, Palestinians fear irrelevance more than anything else. Palestinians as a group act like three year olds who cannot stand not being the center of attention. They hijack every cause they can. Whatever is in the headlines, they try to make it about them. And then they claim that the world ignores them when they receive far more attention, and more international aid, than any other nation on Earth per capita.

The Palestinians considered the Abraham Accords to be catastrophic - because it punctured their narrative that they are the most important issue in the Middle East, and it ended their control over the Arab League with veto power over any agreement between Israel and Arab states. 

The Arabs don't care about them anymore. The West has started pushing back against the UN obsession with Israel. Even their terror wave of the past two years has not generated much international attention. 

But slaughtering a thousand Jews - that is guaranteed to be covered by the media that they consider controlled by the Jews.

The Hamas leader is speaking for all Palestinians when he says that he is very happy that the world is now focused on Palestinians again, even if it is to report that they are monsters or support monsters. As any parent knows, negative attention is still a reward for toddlers. And Palestinians, after decades of being told that the world revolves around them, that they alone among all peoples deserve unlimited aid, free medical services, free schooling and free residences forever, have had no incentive to grow the hell up.

Beheading children and raping girls is a sure way to get airtime - airtime that will be itself hijacked (as Naim himself tries to do) to redirect world anger against Israel.

Giving a gun to a child is not a good idea. And neither is giving billions of dollars to emotionally retarded people whose top priority is spending it on weapons, whether the cash is coming from the US, the EU or Iran. Palestinians have never been held responsible for their actions by the world, as NGOs coddle them and the EU remains committed to financially supporting them. That is why they have stayed in their mental state of the world owing them everything. When they are no longer the center of attention, they consider that a violation of their rights.

Saeb Erekat said in 2016:

Our struggle is not religious but political, and therefore we say to the world, if you really wanted to fight terrorism and defeat Daash [ISIS], be aware that it will not be in isolation from draining the swamp of the Israeli occupation and establishing an independent Palestinian state on the '67 borders and Jerusalem as its capital.
If you want to stop Islamists from beheading people, give Palestinians a state, Jerusalem, release murderers from prison and all their other demands including destroying Israel via "return." . That was the message in 2016 from the "moderate" Palestinian spokesman, and it is the same message from Hamas today. It is a threat that as long as they don't get their demands met they will continue to terrorize the world, directly or indirectly. 

Terror is the only thing that makes them relevant.
