Israeli Support for ‘Two-State Solution’ Drops Radically
Poll finds 10% drop in support for dividing country, majority oppose evacuation of Jews; 56% of Palestinians think they’ll be expelled.
Only 51% of Israelis – down from 61% last year – support the “two-state solution” by which the Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria would be turned into an Arab state, according to a new poll conducted in early June.
The poll was conducted jointly by the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, together with the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR) in Ramallah.
As for evacuating Jewish towns, 38% of Israelis support dismantling most communities in Judea and Samaria as part of a peace deal, but a wide majority of 54% oppose such a move.
In the last year support for the “two-state solution” dropped remarkably not only among Israelis but also among Palestinian Arabs in Judea, Samaria and Gaza.
Among Palestinian Arabs, support was also at 51% for the “two-state solution” after having been at 54% last summer.
