With Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu meeting in London with US
Mideast mediator George Mitchell, a poll carried out this Sunday
through Monday by Maagar Mohot Survey Institute (headed by Professor
Yitzchak Katz) finds Israeli Jews oppose (52%:33%) a settlement freeze
in Judea and Samaria and E. Jerusalem in return for Arab gestures such
as the opening of various Israeli representation offices or granting of
permission for Israeli flights to fly over Saudi Arabia on the way to
the Far East. Respondents warned (47%:25%) that once Prime Minister
Binyamin Netanyahu formally agrees to a settlement freeze President
Obama will pressure him to continue the freeze indefinitely regardless
of what the Arabs do.

The poll also found support (51%:24%) for Minister Moshe "Bogie"
Yaalon`s call to complete the approval process of outposts in Judea and
Samaria that were established with Israel`s consent and whose approval
process has yet to be completed. Netanyahu`s de facto freeze without
cabinet approval was also considered improper (63%:22%) and that PM
Netanyahu is on a "slippery slope with President Obama" (55%:26%).

Israeli Jews agree (41%:19%) that the Peace Now movement has caused damage to the State of Israel.

The telephone poll of a representative sample of 506 adult Israeli
Jews, was commissioned by Independent Media Review & Analysis
(IMRA) and has a survey error of ± 4.5 percentage points.

Detailed results follow:

#1. To what extent do you agree or disagree that the call of Minister
Moshe "Bogie" Yaalon to the Government of Israel, to complete the
approval process of outposts in Judea and Samaria that were established
with Israel`s consent and whose approval process has yet to be
completed. Disagree 24% So-so 8% Agree 51% Other replies 17%

#2. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has carried out a de facto policy
of freezing the settlements in Judea and Samaria. Without any
connection to you position on the matter, do you believe it is proper
that Prime Minister Netanyahu did not bring the matter of the building
freeze in the settlements for the approval of his cabinet or security
cabinet? Improper 63% Proper 22% Other replies 15%

#3. Do you support a settlement freeze in Judea and Samaria and E.
Jerusalem in return for Arab gestures such as the opening of various

formally agrees to a settlement freeze President Obama will pressure
him to continue the freeze indefinitely regardless of what the Arabs
do." Disagree 25% So-so 8% Agree 47% Other replies 20%

#5. Minister Moshe "Bogie" Yaalon warned last week that "When you do
things you don`t believe in, you enter a slippery slope because they
put pressure on you, and you keep rolling downwards." Do you think that
Prime Minister Netanyahu is on a slippery slope with President Obama? No 26% Yes 55% Other replies 19%

#6. What do you think should be the State of Israel`s central demand of
the Palestinian Authority: stopping the incitement for hatred of Jews
and Israel or eradication of the terror infrastructure of armed
militias and other illegal Palestinian forces? Incitement 8% Terror 15% Both 65% Other replies 12%

Peace Now movement has caused damage to the State of Israel? Disagree 19% So-so 11% Agree 41% Other replies 29%
