I don't object calling a psychiatrist for explaining paradoxical behaviour. But first I suggest that we try an explanation by just using plain common sense. 1° How can we explain that the government makes commitments and does the contrary? A psychiatrist would call it mythomania. I call it lying.The rational explanation for the lies: it pays time in order to realize the real agenda of the governement: Territorial expansion, based on Jabotinsky's time-honored revisionist ideology, confirmed by the democratic election of a suitable majority in the Knesset. The settlers sow fear and extort the country for so many years? Because they do implement the revisionist goal on the ground. All the Arab nations have presented a historic peace proposal, and Israel refuses to even discuss this? Because it goes against the territorial ambition of Israel, that's why. Judge by the deeds, not by the words. are too week to protest.
