How do people fall for his fake pan-Arabism and non-genuine support for the Palestinian cause?
Walid wasn't like his father Kamal.
Walid distanced himself from Pan Arabism later on in the early 80s, he did not want to get involved any longer. Walid Joumblatt is probably saying out of respect of the old guard who fought with Kamal Joumblatt during the civil war (Maybe I'm wrong)
Kamal was more passionate about the cause and he really admired Gamal Abdel Nasser.
