    Twenty years ago, when I made aliyah, I wrote already that Israel doesnot need more weapons to defend itself, but an army of compassionate psychotherapists and healers. The paranoia and schizophrenia Levy detects, has a very real cause: almost 2000 years of having been persecuted, culminating int he shoah. And now living in an unfriendly neighbourhood of Arab countries where the Protocols of the Elders of Zion are openly sold. But still we should work on our inner terrors and fear of being wiped out totally, because only then we will be able to have a more rational policy. A more compassionate attitude is neccessary than Levy manages - he is (in my opinion) too angry to be able to be part of this compassionate healing force. (and I understand why - he has seen too much misery.) But psychiatrists won't help - they just give pills. Psychotherapists and shamanic healers, that is what we need!
