Recognizing Israel as a Jewish State

49% of Palestinians living in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, would agree to recognize Israel as a Jewish state as part of a peace agreement establishing a Palestinian state, while 48% object.

Such are the results of a survey conducted by Yediot Ahronot reported on Thursday, October 21, 2010 and published by Itamar Eichner in Ynet News.

In June, before direct peace talks began, results were more positive, when 58% of the Palestinians interviewed said that they would be willing to accept Israel as a Jewish state, while 39% objected.

The survey was undertaken by Professor Yaacov Shamir of Hebrew University in Jerusalem and Professor Khalil Shikaki, who heads the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah.

    Israel is not where it was at the time of Yitzhak Rabin z”l and we don’t seem to have leaders of his calibre, vision and personal integrity.
