A poll conducted by Agenda - the Israeli Center for Strategic Communications - claimed that 43% of Jewish youth in Israel think that Jews are smarter than Arabs, in a report released by the organization on Monday.

The poll also claimed that 43% of Jewish youth and 42% of Arab youth think that Jews have a higher level of culture.
The organization sampled 507 Jewish and 304 Arab youths between the ages of 13 to 18 in its poll.
The poll further claimed that 38% of Arab youth are ready to have social
relations with members of other cultural sectors. Only 21% of Jewish
youth felt the same way.
When asked whether they would be ready to live in the same neighborhood,
34% of the Arabs answered positively, while 23% of Jews said they
would live in the same neighborhood with people from another sector.
The report seemed to find differences between the sexes when it came to
perceptions of the other. It found that Arab boys are less likely
to think that Jews are more intelligent, but think that that Jews are more
violent. The opinions of the Arab girls seemed to follow an opposite trend.
Additionally, the poll found that the more religious one is, the less
likely they are to be ready for relations between the different sectors.
