Three quarters of Jewish students think Arabs are uneducated, uncultured and unclean, according to a new study published by Haifa University, Army Radio reported on Wednesday. An equal number - 75 percent - believe Arabs are violent, the study said, and some 33% are afraid of them. The study also showed that fewer than half of Jewish students were prepared to meet with Arab youth. Contrary to these figures, 75% of Arab students have expressed readiness to meet with Jewish students. In addition, the study said only 27% of Arab students believe Jews are uneducated, and only 40% think Jews are uncultured. The study, entitled "Perception of the Other among Jewish and Arab Youth in Israel," was conducted among 1,600 students from 22 high schools throughout the country.
