I had my own brush with PTSD, I didn’t develop the full condition, but I suffered from the symptoms … after a Lebanese colleague of mine was killed by the Israelis, they fired a tank shell into the back of his car, I had just got out, I was only 100 yards away, he managed to force his way out through the window before he died. He was on fire, I couldn’t get up there, when I tried to get up there the Israelis tried to  kill me, they opened fire on me with a heavy machine-gun. These things leave their mark.”
