Israeli, Palestinian support for two-state solution down since US Jerusalem move

Israeli, Palestinian support for two-state solution down since US Jerusalem move Israeli, Palestinian support for two-state solution down since US Jerusalem move

The "Palestinian-Israeli Pulse" poll, conducted jointly by the Tami Steinmetz Center for Peace Research (TSC), Tel Aviv University, and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR) in Ramallah, surveyed a representative sample of 1,270 Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip and 900 Israeli citizens, with sub-samples of Arab-Israelis and Israeli settlers.

While deploring the declaration of the President of the United States on 6 December 2017, PACE underlined that "the status of Jerusalem should be decided by common agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians", in a resolution adopted on the basis of a report by Titus Corlatean (Romania, SOC).

Support for armed struggle has nearly doubled among Palestinians in the last six months, while Israeli backing for a decisive military offensive to end the conflict increased during the same period by nearly 60 percent, according to a poll published Thursday that said the rise was most likely linked to US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Forty-seven percent of Palestinians and 46% of Israeli Jews said they back a two-state solution, which would include the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel. Trump's declaration on Jerusalem was followed by more pessimistic attitudes among Palestinians in general as well as an increase in support for militancy, the poll found.

Palestinians have waged two uprisings, or Intifadas, against Israel since 1987 that have resulted in the deaths of thousands of Israelis and Palestinians.

The same poll in June found 21 percent support for armed struggle, while 45 percent backed a peace agreement.

A similar but less extreme trend was seen among Israeli Jews.

A new survey of Israeli and Palestinian attitudes towards the long-protracted conflict published Thursday showed decreasing support for a two-state solution among both groups, coupled with higher levels of mistrust and less support for USA involvement in the peace process among Palestinians. Palestinian leaders refused to meet with him, accusing the Trump administration of bias toward Israel. Support for a peace deal fell from 45 percent to 38 percent, while those in support of a "decisive military offensive" climbed from 12 percent to 19 percent.

Palestinian protestors clash with Israeli security forces following a demonstration calling for the release of Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails, on January 13, 2018, in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh.

The King made the remarks on Sunday at a meeting with visiting US Vice President Mike Pence, during which the US official said his country was committed to the two-state solution if it is agreed by both Israel and the Palestinians, Xinhua news agency reported.

Trump's decision was controversial among Palestinians as it altered decades of USA policy on the protracted conflict, effectively recognizing Jerusalem, a contested city, as the capital of Israel.

Large majorities on both sides deem the other side untrustworthy.
