was shown in an Israeli-made documentary on anti-Semitism. It was beyond shocking how the adults on that field trip harangued the students (they were visiting a WWII camp) until they were crying hysterically, even the boys. That is what is called trauma-based mind-control which is well researched and proven to be extremely effective in shaping human thoughts, attitudes and actions later. It is abusive in the extreme, and consider that every new generation of Israeli Jews (no Palestinians were on this field trip) are intentionally traumatised by their elders to 'keep the memory alive' so they, too, will repeat the mantra 'never again' with their own trauma ever fresh in their minds. They will grow up and perpetrate the same abuse to the next generation, thinking it's normal. It's NOT normal, it's abuse in one of the sickest ways. But Shelly is right, it's a way to keep everyone juvenile and therefore excuse their bad actions of individuals and Israeli government/military. Really, it's time to move on and grow up.
