Compare and Contrast

A few days after the Saudi SPA agency implicity condemned Hezbollah for "uncalculated adventures ... inside [Lebanon]", Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh accused Israel of "crazy adventures in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Lebanon".

This similarity in language and perverse reversal of the original criticism of Hezbollah seems to indicate that Haniyeh, like many other Palestinians, feels that he and his fellow extremists are now regarded as pariahs by much of the Arab world.
