Results of Maagar Mohot Poll Commissioned by IMRA

Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 8 January 2010

For immediate release

Telephone poll of a representative sample of 510 adult Israeli Jews by
Maagar Mohot Survey Institute (headed by Professor Yitzchak Katz) on 4-5
January 2010 (survey error of +/- 4.5 percentage) commissioned by
Independent Media Review & Analysis:

#1 In general, are you satisfied with how Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu
has handled matters relating to Arab-Israeli affairs since coming into
office?
60% Not satisfied
29% Satisfied
11% Other replies/donít know

#2 What do you think are Binyamin Netanyahuís true intentions in his
decision to freeze construction in Judea and Samaria: The freeze is the
first step before the evacuation of the settlements in Judea and Samaria or
only a tactical move so that after 10 months it is possible to renew
settlement construction in Judea and Samaria despite international pressure.
24% Freeze is the first step to evacuation of communities in Judea and
Samaria
64% The freeze is only a tactical move so that after 10 months it is
possible to renew settlement construction in Judea and Samaria despite
international pressure.
12% Other replies/donít know

#3 What do you think are Binyamin Netanyahuís true intentions when he said
that he is prepared to negotiate with Syria without preconditions: That
Netanyahu is willing to withdraw from the Golan within the framework of an
agreement with Syria, or that Netanyahu doesn't really have any intention to
withdraw from the Golan Heights but it is important to him to appear as
someone who, in any case, engages in peace talks.
19% That Netanyahu is willing to withdraw from the Golan within the
framework of an agreement with Syria
75% That Netanyahu doesn't really have any intention to withdraw from the
Golan Heights but it is important to him to appear as someone who, in any
case, engages in peace talks.
06% Other replies/donít know

#4. What do you think were Binyamin Netanyahuís true intentions when in his
Bar Ilan University address he called for the establishment of a
demilitarized Palestinian state, while emphasizing that international
agreements and international forces cannot really insure that such a
Palestinian state would be demilitarized: That Netanyahu accepts the idea of
an independent Palestinian state or that Netanyahu understands that it is
impossible to guarantee that an independent Palestinian state would be
demilitarized, and thus Netanyahu is prepared to agree only to a Palestinian
entity that is not really an independent state?

27% That Netanyahu accepts the idea of an independent Palestinian state
57% That Netanyahu understands that it is impossible to guarantee that an
independent Palestinian state would be demilitarized
16% Other replies/donít know

#5. In light of the fact that Syria and Turkey today have warm relations
today despite the dispute that exists between the two regarding territory
under Turkish control, that Syria claims belongs to it, do you think that,
by the same token, Syria could have good relations and reach an agreement
with Israel without the return of the territory of the Golan Heights to it?
19% Syria could
74% Syria could not
07% Other replies/donít know

#6 The Palestinians continue to build tunnels between Gaza and Israel, that
could be used for attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers. What do
you think should be done about this situation?
Continue the current policy according to which they are added to the target
bank and from time to time we respond by bombing chosen targets in response
to firing attacks from Gaza or launch a military campaign to eradicate the
tunnels and then declare a policy according to which tunnel construction
will no longer be tolerated in the future?
20% Put the tunnels in the IDF ďtarget bankĒ and respond from time to time
with the bombing of chosen targets in light of attacks
67% Launch a military campaign to eradicate the tunnels and then declare a
policy according to which tunnel construction will no longer be tolerated in
the future
13% Other replies/donít know
