Preferred Abstract (Original): 
Key concepts: Mind, paramount mind, finite mind,hegemony,discrimination, reciprocity This work puts a theory on the mind in practice. The author argues that the core of the conflict between the Arab states and Israel is mental-emotional in its bases. In his theory of the mind as a cognitive-emotive forces of human behavior, Fatayer refers to the mental constructs of the Israelis;their paramount mind and how it perceives the Palestinians to explain the situation. The author claims that the absence of conception of the Israelis to the Palestinians as equal people is the core issue in the crisis. Thus, oppressive and hegemony discriminatory practices of the Israelis to the Palestinians indicate superior ill attitude toward the entire eastern culture. The author presents this work as a macro clinical sociology case.
