Summary:

Replicating Hameiri et al., 2018, more right-wing Israeli Jewish participants exposed to the paradoxical thinking intervention over 4 weeks, as compared to both a randomized control condition and an “inconsistent” intervention (described below), reported at the end of this period marginally greater willingness to reevaluate their beliefs about the conflict and greater openness to meet Palestinians and view Palestinian media to learn about their views of the conflict. In the same study, a message focused on ways the Palestinians were credible partners for peace (inconsistent with predominant Israeli Jewish views) was marginally more effective in leading centrist Israeli Jewish participants to consider reevaluating their beliefs about the conflict.
