“Israeli Arabs are more afraid than the Jewish public of being attacked by an enemy state, according to the annual ‘National Resilience’ survey.
“Israel’s Jewish population, meanwhile, is more calm than ever about the possibility of an attack by an enemy country, the survey revealed, reporting an all-time low on its so-called ‘fear index.’ This is a continuation of a previous trend that began in 2006. The Jewish population’s fear of terror is also reportedly at an all-time low.
“The annual ‘National Resilience’ survey has been conducted since 2000. Most recently it was conducted in November during Operation Pillar of Defense, polling 2,000 respondents, including 400 Arabs. Questions covered topics such as optimism, militancy, faith in government institutions, and fear regarding a possible attack.”
