According to a poll conducted by SHFA, an Arabic language news outlet from the Palestinian Authority, 93% of the Arab residents of Jerusalem would prefer that their neighbourhoods in the city remain under Israeli rule.

That is, they would not want to see their parts of Jerusalem transferred to the PA.

Perhaps more importantly, they also would not trade their Israeli identity cards for those of residents of the PA if given the choice.

1,200 Arab residents of Jerusalem were surveyed for the poll.

Even among those who responded that they would like to see the PA assume sovereignty over their neighbourhoods, only 5 said that they would also give up their Israeli identity cards if that were to happen.
