The poll, which was conducted by Shiluv Millward Brown and iPanel for the Hebrew-language Channel 2 news site, found that a full 59% of Israelis felt Israel did not win in Operation Protective Edge. A paltry 29% said the operation was an Israeli victory.
A decisive majority of the public, 54%, opposed the ceasefire which Netanyahu unilaterally sealed with the terrorist organization Hamas, using a technically to avoid putting the deal up for a Security Cabinet vote. Only 37% supported the ceasefire.
Clearly the disappointment is not directed at the IDF, which 83% of the public said it was satisfied with - instead Israelis apparently are severely dissatisfied with the political echelon, and Netanyahu at its head.
Netanyahu's approval rating nose-dived to a mere 32% in the poll, with a full 59% saying they were not satisfied with him.
Those figures signify an even further plummeting in Netanyahu's ratings; a similar poll two days earlier found that only 38% of Israelis were satisfied with Netanyahu, as opposed to 55% four days prior to that point. At the start of the operation with the ground entry to Gaza, that figure was a whopping 82%.

The sad irony in the aftermath of this conflict is that the terms of this ceasefire are exactly the same as the initial proposal put forth by Egypt when the conflict started several weeks ago, which Hamas flatly rejected many times.
