Israeli Arabs Love Israel!
Israeli Arabs Like Israel; Where's the Coverage?
According to "The Index of Arab-Jewish Relations in Israel," a study by Professor Sammy Smooha of the University of Haifa, 63.5% of Israeli Arabs consider Israel to be a good place to live in 2013, up from 58.5% in 2012.
The percentage of Israeli Arabs who accepted Israel's right to exist as a Jewish and democratic state rose to 52.8% from 47.4% the year before. That is a majority.
Further, the number of Israeli-Arabs who accept their identity as such without identifying as Palestinians increased from 32.5% in 2012 to 42.5% in 2013.
