Prepared exclusively for the Sir Bani Yas Forum By Dr. James Zogby Zogby

During the month of September, 2012 we surveyed: 1,061 Israeli Jews; 414
Israeli Arabs; 1,264 Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, and East
Jerusalem; 497 Palestinian refugees in Lebanon; 489 Palestinian refugees in
Jordan; and 500 Jewish Americans.

The following elements are all discussed as a part of an Israeli-Palestinian
peace. Using a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 meaning you are completely opposed, 5
meaning you are in full support, and 3 meaning you are neutral, please tell
me how much you support each of the following elements in the peace
negotiations.

For there to be peace, the Palestinian state must be independent, sovereign,
and contiguous.
