Poll: Two thirds of 'Palestinians' want to withdraw from talks, more than half approve of murdering Jews

Here are a couple of disturbing results of a recent survey of our 'peace partner's constituents.
(1) Direct Negotiations after Resumption of Settlement Construction:

In light of the resumption of settlement construction, two thirds (66%) of
the public want the Palestinian side to pull out of the direct negotiations
while 30% say it should not pull out of the talks. The percentage of those
who demand a pull out of the talks reaches 62% in the Gaza Strip and 68% in
the West Bank.


(7) Hamas's Armed Attack on Settlers:

49% believe that Hamas's motivation behind its latest attack on settlers
near Hebron was to derail the Washington launch of the direct
Palestinian-Israeli negotiations. 39% believe the motivation was to resist
occupation and settlers. The attack led to the death of four settlers. A
majority of 51% supported the Hamas attack and 44% opposed it. Support for
the attack is greater in the Gaza Strip (61%) than in the West Bank where
only a minority of 44% supported it. Public support for the PA security
crackdown on Hamas in the aftermath of the attack did not exceed 20% with
76% opposing it.
What could go wrong?

The Palestinians are not ready for peace today.

Why Israeli leaders continue to fool themselves into believing there are moderates on the other side is the true mystery of this century.

What could go wrong indeed
