JNS.org – Seventy-one percent of Israeli Jews said that signing an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal would not bring an end to Palestinian terrorism against Jews, according to the latest Peace Index poll from the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University.

Israeli Arab respondents exhibited the diametrically opposite view, with 72 percent saying that a peace deal would in fact halt terror. Sixty-one percent of Israeli Jews, meanwhile, believe the current wave of terror emerged with the planning and guidance of Palestinian leaders.

Less than half (45 percent) of Israeli Jews believe that the Western and Arab forces fighting Islamic State have a high chance of destroying the jihadist terror group, the poll said. A majority of Israeli Jews (59 percent) said most Muslims do not support Islamic State, 58 percent said Israeli Arabs do not support the terror group, and 10 percent said they are “sure” Israeli Arabs do support Islamic State. A majority of Israeli Jewish respondents agreed that destroying Islamic State would not weaken radical Islam in general.
