More than 60 percent of Israelis endorse Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s plan for continued building to accommodate natural growth within existing settlement construction lines, according to the latest War and Peace Index.
If Netanyahu’s policies were to damage US-Israeli relations, the support for his policies would drop by 21 percentage points.
Because an overwhelming 71% of Israelis believe most Palestinians do not recognize Israel as the state of the Jewish people, only 50% of Israelis believe the Palestinians have the right to an independent state.
60% of Israelis oppose a “Palestinian state that encompasses the territories conquered in 1967,” even if there were “official Palestinian recognition of Israel as the state of the Jewish people.”
And 56% of Israelis oppose Israel claiming responsibility caused by the 1948-1949 War of Independence and the refugee problem rooted in the war.
