Support for a two-state solution among Palestinians and Israelis s declines to just one-third on each side, along with growing opposition to the detailed items of a permanent peace agreement for implementing a two-state solution. Slightly more Israeli Jews support one unequal state under Israeli rule than the two-state solution; but both publics still prefer two states to any other democratic framework for resolving the conflict. Pairs of reciprocal incentives can raise support somewhat on both sides, showing some flexibility particularly among the Israelis. But trust is declining to new low points, and a majority of Palestinians reject four proposed confidence building measures while a majority of Israelis accepts half of them.

Thirty years after the signing of the Oslo Accords, about two thirds describe conditions today as worse than they were before that agreement; two thirds think it has damaged Palestinian national interests, three quarters think Israel does not implement it; and a majority supports abandoning it despite the fact that about half believes that abandoning it would lead to the collapse of the PA and the return of the Israeli Civil Administration.

Comparing the Results of 2010 and 2022 Polls

Despite continued lack of trust in the intentions of the Jerusalem municipality and despite a firm belief in the existence of discrimination against Arabs, a comparison between the current findings and those of 2010 shows a decline in the percentage of East Jerusalemites who prefer to hold Palestinian citizenship, in a permanent peace agreement, and an increase in the preference for holding Israeli citizenship; but the majority still prefers Palestinian citizenship.
