We call that pragmatism.
Lest we forget. In 1948 Israel was willing to forever accept an Israeli state and the West Bank and Gaza as permanent Palestinian states. The arabs said lets kill all those Jews. No mercy. Declared a holy war.
The Arabs could have helped the Palestinians at any point since 1948. Built some houses, provide drinkable water etc. They chose not to because of politics. They decided to let their fellow Arabs live in squalor to make their political point and use those images for political purposes in their own country.
