>We Are For Israel Blog Post-Recognizing Israel as a Jewish State

>An interesting post just went up on the We Are For Israel Web site. It cites a survey that shows that Palestinians living in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem are evenly split on the question of recognizing Israel as a Jewish state as part of a peace agreement. Even more troubling are the numbers when compared to a survey last June…


49% of Palestinians living in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, would agree to recognize Israel as a Jewish state as part of a peace agreement establishing a Palestinian state, while 48% object.
Such are the results of a survey conducted by Yediot Ahronot reported on Thursday, October 21, 2010 and published by Itamar Eichner in Ynet News.
In June, before direct peace talks began, results were more positive, when 58% of the Palestinians interviewed said that they would be willing to accept Israel as a Jewish state, while 39% objected.
The survey was undertaken by Professor Yaacov Shamir of Hebrew University in Jerusalem and Professor Khalil Shikaki, who heads the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah.
