64% Israelis don’t expect peace deal

Jerusalem, October 2

Almost two-thirds of Israelis believe there will never be a peace agreement with the Palestinians, according to the results of an opinion poll.

Sixty-four per cent of the 646 Israeli and Arab Israeli respondents questioned said a peace accord would never be reached, in the survey conducted by the Project HaMidgam institute for the Walla news website.

Twenty-four per cent believed an accord was possible but that it would take longer than five years to achieve, while 4% thought it could be attained within five years. The remaining 8 % were undecided in the poll, whose margin of error was not published.

The peace process between Israel and the Palestinians has been comatose since the collapse of a US-led initiative in April 2014. — AFP
