Poll: 66% Israeli's against the division of Israel's capital - Jerusalem

Sixty-six percent of Israelis polled by a Geocartography Knowledge survey this week carried out for Israel’s Channel 1 television, said they are against allowing the Palestinian Authority to have control of any part of the capital.

Virtually the same number – 67 percent – told the pollsters that construction should not be frozen in any part of United Jerusalem.

An overwhelming 73 percent said they are against international control of holy places, which were restricted to Muslims under the Jordanian occupation before Israel opened up churches and synagogues for all visitors after the Six-Day War in 1967.
