Radical Findings

Who is more likely to engage in violent actions to topple the government? West Bank settlers or Israelis living within the Green Line?

As reported on Ynetnews.com today, a new Haifa University study finds that "3.3 percent of Jews living inside the Green Line would be willing to take part in violent actions to topple the government. But no settler answered the last part in the affirmative."

The article states:

As opposed to the popular image of West Bank residents as "extremists," the survey shows that the more radical the protest action gets, the lower the percentage of West Bank residents willing to take part as opposed to Green Line colleagues. For instance, 9.7 percent of Green Line residents said they would be willing to take over government offices, buildings or factories to protest government policy, as opposed to just 6.5 percent of residents of the territories.

The study also found that 20 percent of Israeli Jews would be willing to block roads to protest the disengagement.
