Second poll showing that support for expulsion from Gaza drops below 50 percent
While 75 percent of Israelis believe the forced evacuation of Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria will be implemented, the poll showed only 48 percent now support the plan in its current unilateral framework.Most interesting about this poll is that it indicates that the Israeli Arabs are among those who're on the side of disengagement, which could indicate that Jewish support is even lower than it may seem. As one respondent on the topic at Israpundit that spoke about this says:
And the poll includes all Israelis, including Arabs, so that among Jews it would appear that opponents are reaching parity with proponents of 'disengagement.'
A large majority feels quitting Gaza and northern Samaria in a manner that looks like retreat will result in increased Palestinian Arab terror against Israel's Jews.
Only 25 percent said the pullout would bring a decline in terror, as originally promised by Sharon.
Fifty-two percent of respondents expect implementation of the plan to further tear Israeli society in two.
"The 20% of the population are Israeli Arabs and you know how they voted. Deduct the 20% and the pros for evacuation would be 28%."It could be even less than that; it's a good question indeed.
