(Israel National News) An overwhelming majority of Israeli Jews believe that the current negotiations with the Palestinian Authority will not lead to a peace agreement, a new poll by the Israel Hayom daily newspaper has found.
The poll, conducted by New Wave Research and released Friday, found that 87.5% of Israeli Jews do not believe that the talks will result in a peace agreement. 6% of Israeli Jews said they think the peace talks will lead to a deal, while 6.5% said they were not sure.
The poll was released hours before U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, on his latest visit to the region to push for progress in the talks, said the sides were "closer than they have been in years" to a deal.
