Telephone poll of a representative sample of 500 adult Israeli Jews by
Geocartography and broadcast on Israel Television Channel 1 on 27 July 2010
on a program marking 5 years from the Israeli retreat from the Gaza Strip
[AL: the term "retreat" most aptly describes the move both in terms of how
it was carried out as well as how it was perceived by the Arab world].
Was the 2005 disengagement from the Gaza Strip the right thing to do?
Yes 25% No 54%
Would you support another unilateral withdrawal?
Yes 21% No 62%
Did the disengagement strengthen or weaken Israel’s deterrence?
Weakened 55% No impact 28% Strengthened 8%
Since the disengagement has your support for the settlers changed?
Increased 39% Reduced 14% No change 32%
Would there be a civil war if another unilateral withdrawal was carried out?
Yes 50% Maybe 18% No 21%
