‘Majority of Israeli public fearful of visiting Jerusalem’

A majority of the Israeli public have refrained from visiting Jerusalem in the past year due to security concerns, according to a poll released Sunday.

According to the Smith Research Center poll commissioned by the Commanders for Israel’s Security movement, 57 percent of non-Jerusalem residents said they had feared visiting Jerusalem in light of the recent wave of violence in the capital.

Seventy-three percent of Israeli Jews surveyed also said they would feel safer if Israel separated the Jewish and Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem.
