    there is a growing literature that suggests that not only individuals, but social institutions, can suffer from PTSD. Thus, for example, Loren and Barbara Cobb, in an article entitled “The Persistence of War,” argue that “specific symptoms of untreated PTSD are particularly troublesome for the social institutions of a society suffering from epidemic levels of these disorders. These symptoms are: hypervigilance, emotional numbing, denial and avoidance, seeing the world in black and white, magical thinking, and apocalyptic thinking.”

    But the poor dears are still coming out with many medical and technological innovations which I hope eots never avails himself of since he doesn't want to appear a hypocrite, given his hatred of the Israelis.

    You sure that is an Israeli woman and not some NeoNazi or Islamofascist woman in this video posing as an Israeli woman for propaganda purposes?. I doubt an Israeli woman would be making a video to tell people to leave them alone so that they can kill. I can see her saying Just leave Israel alone and let us live in peace. Meanwhile, instead of wanting to kill people, it looks like the Israelis are enjoying their ice cream.

    h and religion in Israel's ultra-Orthodox Jews

    Sharmila Devi
    Psychological after-effects of the recent evacuation of the Gaza strip are starting to show in both soldiers and settlers. But, says Sharmila Devi, mental-health professionals often have difficulty treating ultra-Orthodox Jews because few fully understand the religion's strict rules for daily life.
    The beliefs and psychology of Jewish settlers, many of whom are fiercely nationalistic and religious, came under the media spotlight recently after some 8000 of them were evacuated by Israeli forces from the Gaza Strip and northern West Bank in August.
    But within weeks, much of Israeli society appeared to have considered the withdrawal over and embraced the start of the Jewish high holy days. However, the psychological effects of evacuation on the settlers were appearing. More than 50 people had been to the Soroka medical centre in the southern Israeli town of Beersheva within 2 weeks of the evacuation, according to the Israeli daily Ma'ariv.
    Health professionals report that some Israeli soldiers, several of whom were called “Nazis” by screaming settlers as they were removed from their homes, have suffered psychological trauma along with the settlers themselves.
