 Only a third of Israelis support two states

< p>

Only 36% of Israelis “completely” or “to some extent” agree that a post-election government should try to advance a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, according to a Voice of Israel poll; in September.

The study showed that among Jewish Israelis this number is only 31%, while among Arab Israelis — 60%.

The numbers for both Jews and Arabs were lower than in a similar poll in February 2021, when 50% of Israelis thought the government should try to push for a two-state solution — 44% Jewish and 79% Arab.

The figures were released a day after Prime Minister Yair Lapid said in his speech to the UN General Assembly on Thursday that a majority of Israelis support a two-state solution. The current poll shows that the vast majority believe this is not relevant to the next government.

The poll also asked Israelis whether the country should carry out a military attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, even without America's consent, with almost half (49%) said they were “completely” or “to some extent” agree that Israel should do this. According to the survey, this includes 55% of Jewish Israelis and 17% of Arab Israelis.
