Realizing their worst fear

Sometimes people do things which cause their greatest fear to be realized.  For example; a man that is extremely afraid their wife will leave them will forbid them to work outside the home, to visit relatives, and in general isolate them from all other people.  This forced isolation may well be the reason their spouse does leave them.  And it could be the Arabs and perhaps Muslims in general are working as similar sort of angle.  Take a look at these cartoons from Arab media.  Their view of the world is that the Jews are out to get them.  This frame of mind would explain why many of them want to “wipe Israel off the map” and kill all Jews.  It appears to me they are at risk of having their greatest fear realized because of their own actions.
