Last Friday, July 14, a terrorist attack took place in the Old City of Jerusalem, just outside the Temple Mount complex. The place is particularly symbolic in the context of the Arab-Israeli conflict: Israel took the Old City during the Second Arab-Israeli War in 1967, but the annexation from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has never been internationally recognized, and in 2000 it became the stage of the Second Intifada uprisings. The complex hosts the Western Wall, that is sacred to Jews and the Dome of the Rock, where the Muslims believe the Prophet ascended to heaven

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
