What Israelis Think

What Israelis Think (WIT), a project born a decade ago, aims to provide a comprehensive and dynamic picture on what Israelis think about various political issues with an emphasis on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Over time, we aim to continually assess how the general Israeli public (both Arabs and Jews) and specific populations such as West Bank settlers, view the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the future of Israel and the Palestinians. 

We show ongoing trajectories of attitudinal change and indicate the associations between these changes and specific events in the Middle East conflict as they unfold. To provide a comprehensive representation, we examine how other relevant groups such as Palestinians and Americans view the ever-changing situation in Israel and the territories. This enables an understanding of the dialectic relations between the attitudes of different stakeholders in the region and in the world.  WIT does not rely exclusively on opinion polls; the project presents a comprehensive up-to-date analysis of web traffic illustrating the intricate relationships between what people report in polls and how they engage with political and territorial issues online.

WIT is the go-to place for dynamic and up-to-date information on the people’s views surrounding the political events in the Middle East, specifically Israel.  It is a resource for scholars, journalists, policy makers, diplomats, and for anyone interested in understanding more about the complex interplay of attitudes, emotions, and behaviors of the different groups that underlie the making of history as it unravels.
