64% of Israelis support two state solution

That’s the good news, the bad news is that some of those Israelis voted for Netanyahu so they know that a two state solution isn’t going to happen while he’s around.

Still, it is encouraging

Here is the article from Ma’an News Agency:

Bethlehem – Ma’an 19/10/2009 – Sixty-four percent of Israelis support the creation of a Palestinian state, a new poll carried out by researchers at Tel Aviv university shows.

The poll, which was reported on the Hebrew website of the newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, shows that 33% of Israelis oppose the “two-state solution.”

The survey also showed that 60% of the Israelis believe that continued settlement expansion reducing the chances of a two-state solution or would lead to a bi-national state while 33% have the opposite view.

However, the survey also showed that 79% of Israelis rejected the main conclusion of the UN-backed Goldstone report, that Israel committed war crimes during its war on Gaza last winter. Fully 93.5% share their government’s view that the report was biased against Israel.

The newspaper said that the survey was based on a sample of 514 Jewish and Palestinian citizens of Israel.
