To the untrained observer, Palestinian propaganda seems like a mix of exaggeration, overconfidence, and misinformation. But I've thought that what the Palestinians attribute to the Israelis is actually a window on what the Palestinians themselves are thinking(ie. what psychologists call "transference").

Case in point: News agencies report that Yasser Abed Rabbo said that "Sharon is `obsessed with committing massacres and slaughter''", which sounds like a
perfect description of what Arafat's Fatah group is up to.
