Gaza, ALRAY - The majority of the Israelis refuses that West Bank be relinquished to the Palestinian Authority (PA) as result of peace talks, a poll finds.
Israel Channel 7 website reported that a survey noted that only 39% of respondents believed that ‘Israel’ must withdraw in order to attain peace with the Palestinian Arabs. 61% believed otherwise.
In addition, the survey revealed that 70% of the public "cannot relate to (PA Chairman) Mahmoud Abbas as a potential partner for a peace agreement," while 30% of the public believes the opposite.
The so-called peace talks between the PA and the Israeli occupation resumed in July 2013 after a 3-year-long stalemate conditioned that a final-status resolution to the Israeli-Arab conflict be reached within nine months.
