Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Let´s not mention the effects of living through 59 years of violent hate proyection, on anyone German or Arab, by the state of Israel.

The suit is intended to benefit an estimated 15,000 children of survivors in Israel who are in need of psychological treatment as a result of being raised in dysfunctional homes.

*"children" here must have a new age definition than in the rest of the planet, so that anyone over 18/21 can be considered a helpless victim.

*"raised in dysfunctional homes."  I qualify.  Doesn´t everyone, really, by today´s standards versus their parents, in any country?

the money will only be used to pay for treatment and an accompanying cultural project

"cultural project" = prolong a politically-convenient conflict for an extra century, through media management.

The suit also includes a professional opinion by a top Israeli psychiatrist

with no financial, national, nor religious bias whatsoever, I am sure...

If the case does not succeed in Israel, Mazor says the Fisher Fund may file another suit in a German or international court. They are already collecting money to do so, he said. "But if the Tel Aviv court recognizes that the second generation are also victims, then that is already a significant step,"

These "children" can wait another decade for PTSD treatment because the publicity is worth it...  Of course!, we are doing it for the "children"...  We will collect money for lawsuits first so we can take care of the "children"...

"People in Israel feel we are doing something moral and important," he said. "They say we are doing holy work."
