A new poll shows more than a half of Jewish Israelis support extrajudicial killings of Palestinians.

A majority of Jewish Israelis said they support the statement that “any Palestinian who has perpetrated a terror attack against Jews should be killed on the spot, even if he has been apprehended and no longer poses a threat,” a recent Peace Index poll by the Israel Democracy Institute shows.

“The Jewish public is showing a very high and worrisome level of support for attacks on Arab perpetrators, and as we have already had occasion to realize, in moments of anxiety and confusion there is no great ability to distinguish between a perpetrator and a non-perpetrator,” the October 2015 Israel Peace Index reads.

Moreover, the great majority of the Jewish public, 80 percent according to the poll, agrees that the family home of a Palestinian who has murdered Jews in an act of terrorism should be demolished. On the other hand, more than a half (53 percent) of the Jewish interviewees appeared to be opposed to similar measures applied to a Jewish terrorist who murdered a Palestinian because of their background.

Adding to this, 70 percent of Jews believe Israeli courts punish Palestinians who have been convicted of carrying out terror attacks too lightly.

In the recent tide of violence and protests, which began one month ago, more than seventy Palestinians have been killed, mainly during violent protests, along with 12 Israelis, who were mostly stabbing victims.
