Sometimes the Arabs are just competing clans. Extended clans. Back when Yassir Arafat was alive I read that most of the Palestinian economy in Gaza was controlled by 13 clans. Arafat’s clan controlled the cement business. Which is huge there because most building is done with cinder block and rebar and poured concrtete from what I see
Point conceded. Either way, there seems to be little concept of loyalty to a nation-state, or anything beyond the level of clan/tribe. They pay lip-service to Islam being one nation, but we’ve seen how well that works. Add in that Arab culture is an “honor” culture as opposed to a “guilt” culture, and things look very dark indeed.
