ABSTRACT
The authors explore the role of a double-edged narrative in fostering or hampering conflict resolution. Reviewing stories told within the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the authors determine the narrative bases for identification and polarization. They deconstruct the stories identifying the common plotlines and characterizations of victims and villains focusing on the underlying values which give substance to the narratives. They reveal whether the stories exhibit a cross-culturally acceptable logic of good reasons after assessing the narrative fidelity of the stories.
