Just over a year ago, a poll conducted byMaagar Mochot , an Israeli research institution, indicated that nearly 50 percent of Israeli high-school students did not believe that Arabs should have the same rights as Jews in the State of Israel.
Eighty percent of religious high school students supported this view.
Meanwhile, 48 percent of all high-school students in Israel said that after enlisting in the IDF they would not obey orders to evacuate settlements in the West Bank.
As an unidentified Education Ministry official told reporters upon the poll's publication:
"This poll shows findings which place a huge warning signal in light of the strengthening trends of extremist views among the youth."
