For some time now, it has been relatively quiet between the Israelis and Palestinians.
However there seems to be more unrest amongst the Palestinians themselves.
Why (from a culturally perspective) could that be?
The answer is “Individualism”. Or rather “Collectivism”, the other side of the cultural dimension called individualism, founded by prof. Geert Hofstede.
This cultural dimension describes the concept of “loyalty”; or, where one’s loyalty lies: with oneself or with the group that you belong to.
