54 percent Israelis support separate Palestinian state

A slender majority of Israelis support the creation of a separate Palestinian state, but did not have high hopes for a peace deal, a survey said yesterday.

The survey by daily Israel Hayom asked more than 800 Israelis "do you support or oppose the idea of two states for two peoples, i.e. the creation of a Palestinian state independent from Israel?"

Almost 54 percent said they favoured the idea, and 38 percent rejected it, with the rest refusing to answer. The survey's margin of error was 3.4 percentage points.
