Three-Quarter of Israeli Jews Oppose Palestinian State on ’67 Lines, Poll Finds

Three-quarters of Israeli Jews oppose the establishment of a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders, a new poll found.

Some 75 percent also are against ceding control of the Jordan Valley and 76 percent oppose the division of Jerusalem, according to a survey conducted last week for the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, a research institute and public policy think tank.

The poll surveyed 505 Israeli Jews from Oct. 12 to 14. The respondents were from all facets of the political spectrum.

The rise of ISIS in the Middle East was shown to have a minimal effect on the Israeli public’s willingness to make territorial concessions in the West Bank. Seventy percent of respondents said it has not affected their position, 17 percent said it made them less ready for concessions and 5 percent said they are more ready for concessions.
