If Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu adopted the Arab Peace Initiative and reached a a final status agreement with the Arab states, the majority of Israelis would support the move, according to a poll whose findings were published on the Al-Monitor news website Monday.
The Israel Peace Initiative-commissioned opinion poll found that, after having the Arab Iniative explained to them, 55% of respondents said they would support the iniative to some degree, with 27% "strongly opposing" and 17.5% unsure how to answer. In the scenario that the prime minister's back the iniative, however, the number of proponents jumped to 69% and those who "strongly oppose" dropped to 18%.
The poll was conducted on May 20 by Israeli polling company New Wave Research, interviewing a sample of 500 Jewish, Hebrew-speaking Israelis above the age of 18, Al-Monitor specified. The sample error was +/- 4.4%.
