Your statement couldn't be farther from the truth.

2011 Arab Public Opinion

The Arab-Israeli Issue

A majority of Arabs polled (675) continue to say that they're prepared for peace with Israel based on a two state solution along the 1967 borders. At the same time, a majority (53%) say that such a solution will never happen. Yet a majority (54%) also believes that if the two state solution is no longer on the table, this will lead to a state of intense conflict for years to come.

Only 20% of those polled believe that a solution to the conflict will come through negotiations (down from 40% in 2010). While 39% believe it will come by being imposed be either the United Nations or the United States and 20% say it will come through another war.

Egyptians are divided on the peace treaty with Israel, with 37% supporting maintaining it, while 35% support cancelling it. The number of supporters increases to 41% if Israel agrees to a Palestinian state.
