Abstract
How does denial affect societies in conflict? What is the role of denial, when it is shared, social and collective, in shaping and affecting the dynamics of conflict? Narrowing down these broad questions, in this text I focus on defining collective states of denial as well as on analyzing efforts to break such cultures of denial as taken by those in society who choose to voice alternatives to war. Looking at the Israeli society and its reactions to the eruption of the second intifada (in 2000), I discuss anti-occupation activism as combating collective states of denial
