    OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an anxiety based condition. The fact that Israel is a state beset with anxiety is both obvious and very sad. Decades of fighting enemies and trying to be brave, the anxiety has to come out in some way. It is unrealistic to compare Israel's need for secure statehood (as a Jewish state), to the United States or Norway - these countries do not have their existence threatened. It is also of no relevance that because other countries do not openly declare religious orientation as an identity that this does not exist. Please do not blind yourself. As the single Jewish nation in the world, Israel needs reassurance that it can have a homeland for Jewish people without being threatened. They need confidence building, empathy and support as they are pushed (quite rightly so) towards a two-state solution..
