The 1991 Gulf War, in which the Israeli Arab population backed the position taken by Iraq against the U.S., which was supported by Israeli Jews, has had some attitudinal effects on the Israeli population. Post-war attitudes of Jews and Arabs on four major factors of conservatism, namely militarism, ethnocentrism, religiosity and anti-hedonism were significantly more extreme than their pre-war attitudes on the same factors. In addition, pre-war intergroup differences, which were found on three of the four factors were found to have intensified in a post-war examination. © 1992.
