A slim majority of both Israelis and Palestinians still favor a peace settlement with a Palestinian state alongside Israel, a new poll showed Monday as Israeli authorities confirmed granting permission to plan the expansion of an Israeli settlement in the flashpoint West Bank city of Hebron.The poll found that 51 percent of Palestinians and 59 percent of Israelis still support a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.The poll comes amid nearly a year of low-level violence between Palestinians and Israelis. Since September, Palestinians have killed 34 Israelis in shootings, stabbings and vehicular attacks. The poll found that 65 percent of Israelis fear Palestinians. In contrast, just 45 percent of Palestinians fear Israelis.The survey interviewed 1,270 Palestinians and 1,184 Israelis in June, and had a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
