Psychosis is an illness. In the case of Israel, the illness would be to accept as natural the terrorist attacks against civilians and to not act against them. Imagine your family living around the Gaza Strip and having to constantly count to 15 to run to an anti-bomb refuge. Think about the uncertainty of sending your child to school on a bus and to have to consider the possibility of its explosion because of the work of a “Palestinian martyr”. In the modern State of Israel, the natural thing is to go to the supermarket or to any public building and wait to have your bag checked to make sure no one is hiding a weapon or a bomb. This practice used to scare away tourists, though now it is more frequent in important European centers. Israel has had to face attacks since the beginning of the XX Century, so it has accumulated quite an experience. On the other hand, many Israelis feel frustrated when they see media coverage sympathizing with Palestinian violence or when they witness the demonizing of their country by any rookie with no proper information on the conflict. Violence influences the votes in an election. For an average Israeli, the Prime Minister candidate has to offer two things: Peace and Security. In general, the average citizen feels that the right-wing enjoys a halo of Security, while the left-wing has the halo of Peace. When a left-wing candidate promises both things, like for example the ex-chiefs of state Ehud Barak or Yitzhak Rabin, they increase the possibility of a socialist triumph. When the population feels that there is no partner for peace or they live through days of physical violence, peace talks become less popular and the possibilities of a nationalist victory increase.
