  • The Holocaust ‘profoundly’ shapes Israel’s foreign policy, experts say

    International Business Times - 01/27/2015

    The memory of the Holocaust continues to shape the policies and international relations of the country that came out of World War II as a homeland for Jews, experts say.

    “The Holocaust profoundly shapes Israeli foreign policy. I would describe it as being the original trauma — a trauma that cast a long shadow on everything Israel does internationally,” Dov Waxman, professor of political science, international affairs and Israel studies at Northeastern University in Boston and the co-director of its Middle East Center, told International Business Times. “Even now, 70 years later, the traumatic impact is still affecting how Israel behaves in the world, how it perceives the world and how it interacts with its neighbors.”
