Arab-Jewish Relations Index 2017

Arab-Jewish Relations Index 2017

This report summarizes the findings of the 2017 Arab-Jewish Relations Index, an annual survey conducted by Professor Sammy Smooha of the University of Haifa concerning the relationship between Israel’s Jewish and Arab citizens. While the study reveals a deterioration in coexistence and a decline in the legitimacy of Jews and the state as perceived by Arabs and in the legitimacy of Arab citizens as perceived by Jews, it also shows that the vast majority of Arab-Israelis would rather live in Israel than a Palestinian state and most Jews and Arabs believe in a shared society where Arabs deserve full rights and integration.
