Poll: 52% of Jewish Israelis support annexation

Over half of Israeli Jews back annexing parts of the West Bank as part of the Trump administration’s peace plan, according to a poll released this morning, though only a third (32%) believe it will happen this year.

As part of their coalition agreement, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chief Benny Gantz agreed the next government can begin moving forward with applying Israeli sovereignty to settlements and the Jordan Valley on July 1, a move expected to enjoy backing from a majority of lawmakers in the current Knesset.

Asked whether they back annexation in the near future, 52 percent of Jewish respondents to an Israel Democracy Institute survey say they do, versus only nine percent of Arabs.
