Poll: Israelis wants peace, Palestinians wants war

41 percent of the Arab Palestinians say they support a return to armed violence against Israel’s Jews.

Belivers in the Koran do not want a Jewish state in the Middle East.

A joint survey of Israelis and Palestinians published on Thursday once again revealed what just about anyone with any common sense has long known: Israelis want peace, while most Palestinians want conflict.

Conducted by the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah, the poll asked roughly 2,000 Israelis Jews and Palestinian Arabs if they believed the current direct peace talks should continue.

An overwhelming 78 percent of Israelis said the talks should continue, though at present only 5 percent had any hope they would result in an actual peace agreement. By contrast, only 30 percent of Palestinians wanted the peace talks to continue, while 41 percent said they support a return to armed violence against Israel’s Jews.

Sixty-three percent of Israelis said they fear another explosion of terrorist violence in the near future.

  1. Your Comment: Sixty-three percent of Israelis said they fear another explosion of terrorist violence in the near future.

    My Comment: I agree with this survey. The violence Israelis have to live with on a daily basis is frightening. It is here in New York, where many people still live with the fear of 9/11, always watching their backs.
