Sixty percent of Israelis who do not believe the Palestinians have accepted Israel’s existence still favor a Palestinian state, according to a new poll. Some 61 percent of respondents to the survey, from the Tami Steinmetz Center for Peace Research at Tel Aviv University, back negotiations if a stable Palestinian government is formed after Jan. 25 Palestinian elections, with 16 percent of respondents backing the status quo and 8.5 percent backing additional unilateral withdrawals from the West Bank. If no stable P.A. government is formed, then 35 percent prefer keeping the status quo, 31 percent support returning to negotiations and 16 percent favor unilateral withdrawal.
