Israelis see high importance in advancing cooperation with Egypt, while cooperation with the Palestinian Authority is of low priority. This is the main finding from a public opinion poll conducted for the Mitvim Institute on July 13, 2016 by the Rafi Smith Institute and in cooperation with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung. It sampled 500 men and women, as a representative sample of the Israeli adult population (aged 18 and older, from both the Jewish and Arab sectors). The findings were first presented on July 20, 2016, at a conference held by the Knesset Caucus for Regional Cooperation (led by MKs Merav Michaeli, Yaakov Peri, and Dr. Michael Oren), in cooperation with the Mitvim Institute. The following are the poll’s findings.
