|Follow j. on||and|
A new poll shows that 63 percent of Israeli Jews oppose a withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines, with land swaps, as part of a permanent peace agreement with the Palestinians.
The latest monthly Peace Index poll released by the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University also found that 79 percent of Israeli Jews think the renewed Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations have a low chance of success of yielding a peace agreement, while 18 percent believe they have a high chance.
Among Israeli Arabs, 41 percent think the talks have a low chance of success, while 47 percent believe there is a high chance.
As part of a permanent peace agreement with security arrangements, a demilitarized Palestinian state, international guarantees and a Palestinian declaration of the end of conflict, 77 percent of Israeli Jews oppose recognition of a Palestinian “right of return” involving the return of a small number of refugees and financial compensation for the rest. — jns
