Anxiety and Its Influence on the Political Views of Palestinian Youngsters.
Hanoun, Rasmiyah
This paper investigated anxiety among the Palestinian children in the West Bank under the Israeli occupation since 1967. The violence has been both physical and verbal and has taken different forms: trial, shooting, home raids and torture. In comparison with studies that have shown that a very small percentage of people develop fear or psychic disturbances as a result of passive or active participation in violent events, it was found in this study that some Palestinian children have actually developed in themselves a certain psychic immunity that makes it possible for them to continue normal daily life with a healthy regularity. They have grown up stronger, and more life-affirming than before the intifada. It was found that these youths received support and encouragement from parents and other family members. (Author/BF)
