Konstantin Kryvopust: the Israeli government does not have popular support for concessions to the Palestinians within the framework of normalization with Riyadh

Date:

The people of Israel are about equally divided over concessions to the Palestinians under the normalization deal with Saudi Arabia.

According to a poll published on Friday’s Channel 12 Evening News, only 39 percent would support a normalization deal if it included major concessions to the Palestinians and the Saudis — a construction freeze in the territories and the construction of nuclear reactors in Saudi Arabia.

37% spoke against such concessions, and almost a quarter of respondents (24%) did not have an answer.

46% of voters of Netanyahu’s coalition do not support such an agreement, and half of Likud voters – only 33% support it.

It is possible that far-right parties will leave the Netanyahu government in the event of a normalization agreement with concessions to the Palestinians. How do voters feel about the possibility of opposition parties joining the government? In general, the majority (44%) in the country are against, and only 30% supported the creation of a government of national unity. Netanyahu’s state split in half: 46% and 46% against.

Polls in recent months have shown Netanyahu’s coalition to lose the election, so opposition supporters are favoring a unity government over elections.
