The survey showed that 51 percent of Israelis would be willing to accept the three-month freeze in exchange for aid from the US.
The survey also shows that 45% of the public opposes a freeze.
In addition, 73% agree with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that any
building freeze should not include Jerusalem. Only 22% of Israelis think
that construction in Jerusalem should be banned, as well.
Despite supporting a freeze, 68% do not believe that it will help renew
talks with the Palestinians, while 29% think the opposite.
