A survey carried out by a German foundation finds ... a third of Jewish youth in Israel say that Judaism is the most important goal for the State of Israel... Only 14.3% of Jewish youth said democracy was Israel's most important objective.
Over 40% of the Jewish youth identify politically with the nationalist parties, with another 20% expressing solidarity with the "moderate" right-wing. Only 11.5% identify (as) left-wing.
41% of the Arab youth said their most important goal was to build a happy family, and 3% said it was to contribute to society. Among Jews, it was 65.5% and 8.5%, respectively.
While close to 55% of Jewish youth feel neither positively nor negatively towards Arabs, over 11% feel fear, and 27% said they feel hatred. A total of 15% of Arabs feel either fear or hatred towards Jews.
27.5% of Jews said they support non-violent protest, and 22.5% said they support violent protest. In the Arab sector, 42% and 33%, respectively, said they support the two methods.
The Jewish youth were asked about soldiers' right to refuse orders. 21% of those aged between 15 and 18 (19% among those aged 21-24) said it is acceptable to refuse orders to destroy Jewish towns, but not orders regarding serving in Judea and Samaria; only 4% (2%) said that one may refuse to serve in Judea and Samaria, but not to evict settlers. 40% (31%) said it was OK to refuse in both cases, and 31% (42%) said it was not acceptable in either case.
57% of Jewish youth favor negotiations with the PA, while nearly 40% object. Among Arabs, 51% favor and 46% object. 70% of Jews object to the two-state solution.
(Will) negotiations bring peace? Over 72% of Jews don't believe so, as do 52.5% of Arabs.

If only American Jews were half as nationalist.
>> and 22.5% said they support violent protest.
Random, arbitrary violence no doubt. /s
Actually, I think that God has other plans, He is still on the throne and He has declared that the Jews are His chosen people.
