Poll: Nearly half of the Israeli population believes homosexuality is a perversion

From a story today in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz:

A Haaretz-Dialog poll has found that nearly half of the Israeli population believes that homosexuality is a perversion.

The poll, conducted under Prof. Camil Fuchs finds that 46 percent of the people surveyed answered the question "Do you see homosexuality as a perversion?" in the affirmative, while 42 percent answered that it was not a perversion. Twelve percent said they did not know.

The survey also finds that 71 percent of the ultra-Orthodox population believe homosexuality is a perversion. So do 67 percent of the religious (Orthodox), 64 percent of the Arabs, 57 percent of the Russian-speaking immigrants, 44 percent of the observant (traditional) Jews and 24 percent of the secular population.

The survey, which will be published Friday in full in Haaretz, consisted of a representative sample of 498 interviewees.
