The poll showed that 89 percent of Jewish Israelis are either sure or moderately sure that the Israel Defense Forces can defend their country properly from security threats. 

Fifty percent of Arab Israelis believe that Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations will lead to peace, doubling the confidence of Jewish Israelis in that outcome, according to the survey. Additionally, 90 percent of Israeli Jews believe that U.S. intelligence services are spying on Israelis.
