In an attempt to understand the effects of the Palestinian uprising on Israelis' burnout, five groups were interviewed: 32 left wingers, 35 right wingers, 32 Orthodox Jews, 30 high-ranking officers, and 30 Arabs. Significant differences were found among the five groups in levels of burnout, with the groups in the following rank order: Left, Arabs, Right, Officers, and Orthodox Jews. The differences in burnout are explained by the difference in existential significance the intifada holds for the five groups. This interpretation is supported by interviews and a burnout workshop conducted with representatives of 14 peace organizations in Israel.
