The Israel Democracy Institute has a  Peace Index which asks a series of questions every month about Israeli attitudes towards the state and some specific timely issues.

This month's results show that Israeli Arabs actually have far more confidence in the strength and future of Israel than Israeli Jews do.

Here are some of the results:

In your opinion, what is Israel’s overall situation today?
"Very good" or "moderately good": Jews 43.7%, Arabs 63%

In your assessment, what will be Israel’s overall situation in the new year that is now beginning? 
Better than last year:  Jews 22.5%, Arabs 54.4%

How will Israel's situation be in these domains compared to last year?
Better than last year: Jews 27.4%, Arabs 39.9%

Better than last year: Jews 19.5%, Arabs 42.6%

Better than last year: Jews 14.3%, Arabs 42.3%

Disputes between different parts of the public:
Better than last year: Jews 10.2%, Arabs 31.6%

Israeli Arabs are more bullish on Israel's current situation and its future than its Jewish citizens. 

Considering how the current Israeli government is portrayed as being a disaster both for the Arab public and for Israel as a whole, this survey shows a much different situation on the ground.
