Egyptian TV host Ibrahim Eissa said, on his February 28, 2024 show on Al-Kahera Wal-Nas TV (Egypt), that Palestinians are to blame for their situation. He said that people still talk about the "victory" of Hamas and Israel’s "defeat," but this is denying reality. Eissa said that for 75 years the Arabs have been defeated, but they have been telling themselves that they are victorious.

Ibrahim Eissa: "To this very day, people are still talking about the victory of Hamas and the resistance, and about Israel's defeat. Seriously? Such blindness! We have been living this lousy story for 75 years – we are defeated, but we tell ourselves that we are victorious. We are following the wrong path, but we say that it is the right one. We deny reality. We are living in delusion.

"We relish victimhood. You are telling me that I am blaming the victims? The Palestinians are victims. So am I blaming the victims? Yes, I am. I am blaming the victims."
