Extrait

Words of praise forIsrael on the Couch:
I found your book to be very interesting. It offers important insights into the issues facing Israeli society following the peace process. The psychological analysis you offer leads to several conclusions which could encourage Israeli public opinion to support the peace process, despite possible difficulties. —Shimon Peres
Your book is a must for the peace negotiators. —Meir Sheetrit, Member of the Knesset for Likud
Your innovative book sheds light on the Israeli-Arab conflict from a very different angle. The prism through which you view the situation offers a new approach. —Avraham Burg, Knesset Speaker
I am sure this book will help decision-makers try to understand the other side better. —Ofir Pines, Chairman of One Israel, Chairman of the Coalition
I was impressed by the book’s original and singular approach to the peace process. The use of the analytical tools you suggest could help decision-makers shape better solutions to the components of the conflict. —Yossi Beilin, Minister of Justice
The material is fascinating and interesting. I thank you for the original thinking. I will do my best to give your ideas resonance. —Shlomo Ben-Ami, Minister of Internal Security
Such a book makes a singular contribution by highlighting the pyschological aspects of the human processes, which we tend to overlook. Undoubtedly, even in the peace process with our neighbors the psychological element is decisive. —David Levy, Minister of Foreigh Affairs
