Will they always hate us?

last monday evening (9th november), 8.30-9.00pm, on bbc radio 4
will they always hate us? (presented by david edmonds) (in the analysis series)

“The Middle East conflict and other long-running international disputes have so far proved incapable of resolution by war or traditional diplomacy. So are the parties fated always to hate each other? Or might there be another approach that could be worth trying?
David Edmonds explores new ideas that psychologists are testing which could offer a way of tackling seemingly intractable disputes. These include understanding the real importance of sacred sites and how to negotiate about them, how to achieve empathy with opponents and the importance of how different sides understand historical events and how these then lastingly shape how different groups view each other.”
(Edmonds 0:05:10) “So too does owning up to past wrongs, and recognising aspects of the other group’s identity.
“The Naqba, or the Catastrophe. It’s the name the Palestinians give to their exodus.from the land they regard as their home, as the state of Israel was being formed.. The Naqba is as central to Palestinians’ identity as the Holocaust is to Israeli Jews’.
