Some 20% believed the socio-economic situation was the most important issue the country faced. *In light of the lack of importance the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is *perceived to have on Israelis and the lack of connection between the need for security and the need for solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it comes as no surprise that only 36% of Israelis said <http://peacenow.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=8dc4822ca41e3938eb4a03c73&id=b6f15344ea&e=f02de68997> they would support a peace deal that included Israeli withdrawal from territory and a Palestinian state – compared to 60% in 2005, according to a poll commissioned by conservative think tank, the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.
