70% of Israelis don’t view Israeli control of Judea and Samaria as ‘occupation.’


Israel National News

Tel Aviv University’s Dr. Nimrod Rosler worked together with “Save Israel. Stop the Occupation” Founder Professor Daniel Bar-Tal on a survey aimed at understanding how Jewish Israelis see Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria and Diaspora Jews’ involvement in the Israeli-Arab conflict.

The two polled 500 Jewish Israels in September 2016, as part of Dr. Rosler’s research on the Diaspora and the State of Israel and a society involved in intractable conflict.

Prof. Daniel Bar-Tal (political psychologist) is a leading researcher in the world regarding intractable conflicts (in 2013 published a seminal contribution Intractable conflict: Socio-Psychological foundations and dynamics-2013 CUP).

According to the survey, the percentage of Israelis who view Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria dropped from 51% in 2004 to 30% in 2016.

In other words, 70% of Israelis do not believe Israel is “occupying” Judea and Samaria at all.

Those who believe Israel is an “occupier” tend to support the potentially dangerous two-state solution, while the 70% who do not believe in the “occupation” usually reject the “peace process.”

The poll also showed that most Jewish Israelis (66.8%) believe the Israeli-Arab conflict has a negative influence on Diaspora Jews, while 24.9% believe it has “no influence” and 8.4% believe it has a positive influence.

However, 69% of Israeli Jews believe the Israeli-Arab conflict “does not harm or harms a little” the situation of Jews living abroad, while 31.1% said it causes harm.

Regarding whether Israel’s control in Judea and Samaria harms Israeli democracy, 67% said it either “does not harm or harms a little,” while 33% said it “harms” Israel’s democracy.

53.5% of respondents said Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria “does not harm or harms a little” the unity of the Jewish people in Israel, while 46.5% said it does cause harm.

When questioned about whether it harms budget, welfare services, education, and health, 53.3% said “yes” while 46.8% said “no or a little.”

However, 55.1% said Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria “does not harm” Palestinian Arabs or else harms them “a little”, while 44.9% said it certainly harms them.

    I read once in a comments section that… wait for it… wait for it… (((“Palestinians are ‘squatting’ on Jewish land”))). Actually, I have read that more than a few times. Everything for the Jews is upside down and back asswards, I have heard this phenomenon being called “Satanic Reversal”. Jews are constantly doing this.

    There will never be peace in Israel.
    Even though Trump and his half kosher team wish it and his progenitors
    will it, it will not ever be brought to fruition.
    Look, these Jews have picked a fight with all mankind, all of natures ability
    to adjust have been exhausted by them.
    They have even picked a fight with God himself
    (Regardless of you believing in a God or not, this affects you)
    Go to Jewish websites and you will see for yourself that “Jews” are calling
    the Arabs “occupiers of Jewish lands for 3000 years”.
    I saw one belligerent today say that “Jews are the original Canaanites” and
    that Arabs DID NOT arrive in Palestine until the first 1900’s.
    That goes against biblical narrative and historical fact.
    And, he called himself an atheist and historian.
    Are you people really ready for a war to the death?
    Because this is exactly what you are now in.
    In Old Testament mythology, the Romans crushed them and won.
    In the real world, the czar and kings and presidents tried to pacify the Jews
    and they were all destroyed by international Jewry and their usurious practice
    and ability to buy the right Judas.
    Modern Russia and Iran seem to have purged their offices and pulpits of Judas influence.
    In America, more often then not, Judas gets re-elected and praised and prayed
    for on Sunday morning(all backed by propaganda and American/Judaic usury
    funding).
    You’re definitely in a war America. But your fight is not in some far away land
    to defend your “Christian faith”.
    You lost that war, big time.
    It’s now just about saving your own asses.
    That makes us the most sad and disgusting nation and not the “indispensable”
    nation I am still hearing and reading about in our Judaized press and radio.
    Paul Craig Roberts recently lamented that Trump did not contact anyone that
    could actually help him,”like me”, he said.
    If you only try to pacify the Jews believing you are protecting your own interest,
    you will be destroyed by them.
    Just ask the French and the Russians and the British.
    Don’t ask the Americans.
    Their big fat asses and small minds still believe they are free and great.
    And Edward Bernays is saying, ‘See, I told ya it would work’.

    who was eating all those pigs that that the demons asked Jesus to cast them into. It says 2000 swine watched over buy swine herders. Jews don’t eat pork so the area must have been inhabited by people other than the jews. It was on the east shore of the sea of galilee, The jews claim it was part of there ancient homeland inhabited only by them.
