A majority (64 percent) of the Jewish public believes now is the right time to resume negotiations with the Palestinian Authority under US patronage, according to findings of a survey conducted by Tel Aviv University and The Israel Democracy Institute.

The October 2010 Peace Index, carried out by telephone from October 18-20, also found that a large majority (72 percent) of the Jewish public favors peace negotiations, but only 33 percent think they are likely to be successful.

With respect to the price for extending the construction freeze, 74 percent support Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s demand that the Palestinian Authority recognize Israel as the state of the Jewish people as a condition for extending the building moratorium in the settlements.

In contrast, a majority of the Arab public (79 percent) opposes this demand.
