Few Jews or Arabs Expect Palestinian State: Poll

A large majority of Israelis and Palestinians do not expect a Palestinian state to be established in the next five years.

According to a poll conducted jointly by the Hebrew University’s Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace and the Palestinian Center for Policy, 71 percent of Israelis and 68 percent of Palestinians believe that such a peace deal will not happen in the next five years, though only about one-third of both populations favor a one-state solution with equal rights given to Jews and Arabs, according to The Jerusalem Post.

In addition, only 19 percent of Israelis favored a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities by Israel alone, while a slim majority favored a joint U.S.-Israeli strike. Seventy-two percent of Israelis believe an Israeli military strike will lead to a major regional war.

The survey, conducted June 17 to 21, interviewed 1,200 Palestinian adults face to face in the West Bank, eastern Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. It featured phone interviews with 602 Israeli adults. The poll has a margin of error of 4.5 percent.

The poll was supported by the Ford Foundation in Cairo and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in Ramallah and Jerusalem.
