Security and political attitudes: The gulf war

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter presents the results of the Project's survey, conducted in the last two weeks of March 1991, some three weeks after the end of the war. It discusses the postwar findings to those of earlier surveys, including the periods immediately before the Iraqi invasion on August 2, 1990, and after the invasion but before the war. Attitudes and change in the wake of the Gulf War will be explored in two different ways. First, the impact of the war will be appraised based on the respondents' reports of change. Secondly, the change in distribution of political and security-related attitudes will be considered. This method examines the change of attitude distribution in independent samples, based on the assumption of sampling theory that well-drawn samples of the same population will be equivalent within known bounds of probability. One of the most emotional issues in Israeli politics has been the proposal to negotiate with the Palestine Liberation Organization.
