Majority of Jews in Israel favor controlling West Bank, poll reveals

A recent poll found that more than a third of the Jewish public believes Israel should annex the West Bank without giving equal rights to the Palestinians living there. Overall, the majority – 55 percent – believe Israeli control of the West Bank should continue, either by sustaining the status quo or through annexation.

By contrast, close to three-quarters of Israeli Arabs favor Israel withdrawing from the West Bank.

The June Peace Index survey, conducted by the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University, sought to explore public perception of the ramifications of the Six Day War, almost 50 years later.
