Poll: More than half of Israelis say peace with Palestinians will not happen

(JNS.org) Israelis were pessimistic about prospects for peace even before the United Nations vote in favor of a Palestinian status upgrade. 

More than half of Israeli respondents (51 percent) to a survey compiled from Nov. 21-26 by the Dahaf Institute and Dr. Shibley Telhami do not believe that a peace agreement between the Jewish state and the Palestinians will be reached, according to Yedioth Ahronoth. The UN vote that approved the Palestinians’ unilateral move took place Nov. 29.

The poll also revealed that 45 percent of Israelis believe neither their country nor Hamas won the recent conflict in Gaza, while 40 percent of respondents said Israel won the conflict and 11 percent said that Hamas won.
