from honestreporting.com, May 22, 2014:

An encouraging University of Haifa study found Israeli Arab attitudes towards Israel softening, reports the Jerusalem Post:

While over the past 10 years, Israeli Arabs have become more extreme in their views toward the state and its Jewish majority, the results of the study in 2013 show a change in trend. For example, 53 percent of Israeli Arabs recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, compared to 47 percent in 2012.

Sixty-four percent in 2013 think that Israel is a good place to live, compared to 59 percent a year ago.

A major shift was found this year in the number of Arabs – 43 percent – who favor their Israeli-Arab identity over a Palestinian one. This compared to 33 percent in last year’s study.
