A new study conducted by the Israel Democracy Peace Index and Tel Aviv University between September 30th and October 1st surveyed both Jewish Israelis and Arab Israelis on a number of issues, including their feelings on Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and on if they believe American President Barack Obama will prevent any Iranian agenda involving the development of nuclear weapons.

The study, which included 601 respondents, according to the Times of Israel, who represent the adult population in Israel, found that 67 percent of Jewish Israelis do not have faith that Rouhani would keep his word to reduce Iran’s nuclear material. Meanwhile out of Arab Israelis surveyed, 42% believed Obama would thwart Iran’s plan for nuclear prowess.

This investigation also questioned Israelis about the relationship between Israel and the Palestinians; the results were that 65% of all Israelis (61% of Jewish respondents and 88% of Arab respondents) were in favour of peace talks.

Statistically it would appear that Arab Israelis have more general trust in the American system. Jewish Israelis, on the other hand, by in large share Netanyahu’s wariness to meet with Iran’s political leaders.

When Rouhani spoke of forging relations at the UN last September only 14% of Jewish Israelis trusted that it was in earnest. Meanwhile, 47% of Arab Israelis believed it marked a real change in Tehran’s policy.

The survey also found that most Jewish and Arab Israelis disagree on a right of return for Palestinian refugees. 81% of Jewish Israelis believe Israel should not accept the return of Palestinian refugees to Israel, while 80% of Arab Israelis support such an initiative.
