Fear of the Enemy, Fear of the Friend.

In my latest article for CGNews’ special series on the impact of fear on the Arab-Israeli conflict, I explore the emotion of what I call “fear of the friend.” Less well known than fear of the enemy, fear of the friend can be equally problematic and harmful to peacemaking. I try to explain why this is so and what are the ways in which we can respond to and mitigate this fear. Hope you find it interesting.

You can read the article here. As always, if the spirit moves you, please let me know what you think.
