From Sigmund, Carl and Alfred:
The predicament the Palestinians find themselves in today is of their own making. Saeb Erekat, Palestinian cause ‘negotiator’ and obfuscator par excellence, denounces rocket launches, terror, kidnappings and other crimes against civilians because ‘they harm the image and goals of the Palestinian people.’ He cannot bring himself to say that kidnappings and other terrorist activities are crimes and are the behavior of immoral people. He clearly does not understand that his own words underscore why his ‘government’ is noting more than a sham.

It is shame versus guilt cultures at play here. In a guilt culture (Europe, Anglosphere, Latin America to some extent), you feel bad about wrongdoing whether anyone catches you or not. In a shame culture, appearances are all that matter.
