Institutions Jewish citizens trusted the least were the media, the Knesset, the Chief Rabbinate and the media. Arabs didn’t trust the media, the Knesset and religious leaders. A vast majority of both groups believe politicians look out mainly for their own interests. A very small percentage of both groups, around 20% believed they could influence government policy. However, 66% of Jewish respondents and 53% of Arabs said they were interested in politics.
