Poll Finds Palestinian Majority Backs Terror Wave

YERUSHALAYIM -

A new public-opinion poll has revealed that a wide majority of Palestinians support the current wave of terror attacks in Israel, The Jerusalem Post reported on Monday.

According to the poll, published by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah, some 67 percent of respondents in Yehuda and Shomron and Gaza say they support knife attacks against Israelis.

The survey also said that 60 percent of Palestinians support an armed intifada, and 66 percent think an escalation in violence would be in their interests.

Fifty-four percent of respondents opposed a two-state solution with Israel, an increase from three months ago, when it was 51 percent. Some 70 percent were opposed to the idea of a one-state solution in which Arabs and Jews would have equal rights.
The survey queried 1,397 adults in Yehuda and Shomron and Gaza.
