Is Israel a psychopath?

There is a lot of talk these days about the psychopaths ruling the world. A study among high executives of large companies, published under the title Snakes in Suits, shows that psychopathic traits are widespread among them.[1] This naturally reflects into collective forms of psychopathy: in The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, Joel Bakan noted that “corporate behavior is very similar to that of a psychopath.”[2]

Some states also behave like psychopaths among nations. The USA is such a state, with a “pathology of power” (the title of Norman Cousins’s 1987 book) probably related to the degree of psychopathy of the men in charge. Behind the mask of sanity and morality displayed by the US on the world’s stage, there is a “deep state” moved by an insatiable thirst for power and uninhibited by any moral conscience or empathy; this pathological deep state is today in almost complete control of US foreign policy.

Israel is another psychopathic state. The relationship between the US and Israel is a peculiar one, and there are differing opinions regarding its nature. Who, of the two, is the driving force? Have US moles infiltrated and hijacked Israel’s foreign policy, or the opposite? I consider that the issue has been settled by Professors Mearsheimer and Walt in their 2008 book The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy (and before that by Pat Buchanan in his 2003 article “Whose War?”[3]): it is Israel who has drawn the United States into wars which were not in their strategic interest, and which, in fact, jeopardize US national security.
