JNS.org – Support for a two-state solution to the long Israeli-Palestinian conflict has fallen to a two-decade low among Israeli Jews and Palestinians alike, a new poll has found.

Conducted jointly by Tel Aviv University and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, the poll found that just 43% of Israelis and Palestinians support the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.

The survey says the reasons for the lack of support include doubts over the possibility of implementing a two-state solution and a lack of trust in the other side.

It says support for the concept began to decline a decade ago.

The poll, conducted in June and July, and released on Monday, interviewed 2,150 Palestinians and 1,600 Israelis. It had a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points for the Palestinians and 3 percentage points for the Israelis.
