Most Israelis do not believe the words of conciliation coming out of the mouth of new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, according to a Panels Sampling Project survey for Channel 10 Television, released on Sunday evening. Seventy-eight percent felt his declarations about dialogue with the United States were not genuine, while only 12 percent felt that his words were true and that he agreed to be flexible on Iran's nuclear development program in exchange for easing of sanctions against the Islamic Republic. Ten percent said they did not know.
Fifty-nine percent felt Iran's diplomatic rapprochement with the West will not result in regulation of Tehran's nuclear armament and there won't be an agreement between Rouhani and United States President Barack Obama. Twenty-nine percent felt there would be an agreement and ten percent said they did not know how to answer.
