Hawkish Israelis

Modiin Ezrachi Institute
reports that recent polls
show Israelis becoming
more hawkish.
While half the public
supports a temporary halt
to building new settlements
in Judea and Samaria in
order to draw in Jordan to
the peace talks, more than
half oppose any territorial
concessions for peace.
Menahem Begin retains a
wide lead over all challen-
gers for Prime Minister.
Asked who was most qual-
ified for the position, Begin
was picked by 45.6 percent
compared to 15 percent for
the runner-up, former
President Yitzhak Navon
