Israel Must Not Repeat
Past, Psychologist Says

BEN GALLOB

Special to The Jewish News

A

Massachusetts psy-
chiatrist, using psy-
choanalytic ap-
proaches to evaluate the
Israeli response to the Palesti-
nian uprising, has warned
Israel that it must free itself
"from the compulsion to
repeat the past" if peace is
ever to be achieved.
That recommendation was
made by Steven Adelman,
who teaches psychiatry at the
University of Massachusetts
Medical Center at Worcester
and who holds dual U.S. and
Israeli citizenship. He
discussed his psychological
approach to the Israeli-
Palestinian impasse in a re-
cent issue of Sh'ma, the in-
dependent Jewish journal.
Adelman said that the
historical record of unending
attacks on Jews, culminating
in the European Holocaust
and the murderous Arab
assaults on Jews before and
after statehood, had compell-
ed Israel to acquire the tools
considered essential for sur-
vival.
Adelman said these tools —
"a thick skin, vigilance, cun-
ning and suspiciousness" —
constituted "street smarts,"
which he said served Israel
well during the 1950s and
1960s.
But things changed with
Israel's impressive military
victory in the 1967 Six-Day
War, which "propelled Israel
into adulthood, suddenly,
perhaps prematurely."
He dismissed as "fantasy"
what he called the Israeli
belief that the Palestinian
Arabs "could be mollified" by
humane policies to "the point
of wanting to remain forever
under Israeli rule."
If the "benign occupation"

had worked, Adelman
declared, the Israeli Jews
"might have been able to
purge from their con-
sciousness the shadowy im-
age of past persecutors."
When the Israeli dream of
"a psydhologically liberating
`benign occupation' " was
shattered by the Palestinian
uprising, that failure was
seen by the Israelis as proving
that "once again," peaceful
coexistence had been
demonstrated by the Arabs to
be an illusion and that the on-
ly effective solution on which
the Israelis could depend was
a military one.

"The historical
record of attacks
.. had compeled
Israel to acquire
tools considered
essential for
survival."

.

The psychiatrist contended
that Israel must recognize
that its post-1967 hopes of a
"benign occupation" have, in
fact, contributed to a vicious
cycle of violence.
Adelman suggested that
Yassir Arafat's recent over-
tures, an apparent reference
to his Geneva statement last
December recognizing Israel's
right to exist and renouncing
terrorism against Israel, were
cause "for cautious op-
timism."
He said Israel needs to
understand and acknowledge
its own role in the ongoing
hostilities, to free itself "from
the compulsion to repeat the
past, and to take in earnest
the current opportunity to ex-
plore the prospects for
peace." LI

West Bank Shul Built
By German Christians

Jerusalem (JTA) — On the
eve of Yom Hashoah,
Holocaust Memorial Day, a
new synagogue was in-
augurated in Ma'aleh
Adumim, just outside
Jerusalem. The shul was
built with the contributions
of hundreds of German Chris-
tians as a token compensa-
tion for the arson of hundreds
of synagogues on
Kristallnacht 50 years ago.

The new synagogue, Mitzpe
Nevo, was built at the in-

itiative of the International
Christian Embassy in
Jerusalem.
A spokesman for the em-
bassy said that Israel's Chris-
tian friends throughout the
world wish to demonstrate
their participation of the
renaissance of religious and
social activities in Israel
through this synagogue.
The inauguration ceremony
at Ma'aleh Adumim — located
east of Jerusalem in the West
Bank — was attended by hun-
dreds of German guests.
