Are You Poll Fooled?

A recent poll claims that most right-wing Israelis would support Palestinian state and the division of Jerusalem, but that is a very misguiding description of Israeli public opinion.

And I’ve collected comments:

So according to the poll, Israel is ready to make peace if the Arabs will implement their agreements…When can we expect the obvious follow-up polls measuring how willing the Arabs are to implement what is necessary to make all this happen?

–   –   –

What the poll shows is that Israelis from left to right all want peace..Perhaps the reason that more Israelis have turned to the right is because of what the poll doesn’t show…What the poll does not show is how the same number of Arabs feel; no recognition of Israel as a Jewish state.  No agreement without the right of return.  Nothing doing without Jerusalem as their capital. No respect for other religions or their holy places.  And the list goes on. The last two decades of concessions, autonomy, expulsion of Jews from their homes, arming the Palestinian police, just to name a few of the major ‘efforts’ Israel has made, have resulted in a real peace being further than ever and an Israel on probation in the eyes of the world.   That giving up land makes our enemies more intransigent, not less.  And coexistence?  Nary a peep about that anymore.

–   –   –

I bet if there was a poll that asked Israelis whether they would support 3 states, so long as it brought peace, they would get the same percentage supporting, so too with 4 states. etc.  Offer peace, Israelis support it – in theory, because that’s as far as they will get to real peace.
