A majority of Israelis want to renew peace talks with the Palestinian Authority in order to prevent further terror attacks, a new poll found Tuesday.
In their monthly Peace Index poll, the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University asked a representative sample of the Israeli population whether they believed it was best to prevent terror attacks by renewing diplomatic talks to end diplomatic contacts with the PA.
The percentages calling for renewing peace talks were 57.2 percent among the general public, 52.5% among Jews and 81.2% among Arabs. Twenty eight and a half percent of the public said to cease diplomatic contacts with the PA, including 33.1% of Jews and 5.7% of Arabs.
