Wafa Idris has been the first Palestinian woman to suicide in a terrorist attack in Israel. Historically, the extremist religious groups have always preferred not to train women for suicide attacks but when in Israel the security measures were reinforced, it became more difficult for men to carry out terrorist attacks and women, who had always been less monitored than men, started to be trained as kamikaze.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a never-ending story. According to Professor Bar-Tal, it is an intractable conflict with a socio-psychological component. He argues that the “ethos of conflict” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been developed to modify individual’s perspective about the conflict and to maintain a distortion of reality, by providing a unique, general and dominant orientation to society. In this exclusive interview for EPOS realized by our new intern Melania Malomo, Bachelor Degree in Political Sciences at LUISS Guido Carli University, Professor Bar-Tal talks about his perception of the Jewish society in Israel and the role of the Israeli youth, and he clarifies the meaning of “ethos of conflict” with particular regard to the future of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute
