With the Middle East ablaze with multiple crises, Palestinians are getting less Arab support than before in their latest battle with Israel in Gaza. There may have been more solidarity on the streets of Paris and New York than in Cairo or Beirut.Arab nations that long championed the Palestinian cause are now consumed by their own conflicts, including sectarian wars in Syria and Iraq, and Egypt's political battle with the Muslim Brotherhood that has drawn in rival Gulf states.The shift echoes the Egyptian state's hostility to the Muslim Brotherhood – the ideological parent of the Hamas group that runs Gaza.It is a stark contrast to 2012, the last round of major conflict in Gaza, when Hamas leaders were hosted in Cairo by President Mohammad Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood politician overthrown by Sisi last year.Hezbollah's leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah last week pledged full support to Hamas, though he did not say what his group might do to help.
