Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday that Israel is witnessing a wide ranging shift in the perception of Israel among Arab states.

Speaking at the start of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Netanyahu said a recently conducted survey found that 50 out of 54 see Israel as a "powerful" state and that 47 of them, including Arab states, want to improve ties with Jersalem.
