Jerusalem Post redovisar idag en opinionsundersökning om palestiniers åsikter:
Only one in three Palestinians (34 percent) accepts two states for two peoples as the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, according to an intensive, face-to-face survey in Arabic of 1,010 Palestinian adults in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip completed this week by American pollster Stanley Greenberg.
The poll, which has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points, was conducted in partnership with the Beit Sahour-based Palestinian Center for Public Opinion and sponsored by the Israel Project, an international nonprofit organization that provides journalists and leaders with information about the Middle East.
Utöver den intressanta åsikten att 70% av palestinierna förkastar en tvåstatslösning fanns även annat intressant:
Asked about the fate of Jerusalem, 92% said it should be the capital of Palestine, 1% said the capital of Israel, 3% the capital of both, and 4% a neutral international city.
Seventy-two percent backed denying the thousands of years of Jewish history in Jerusalem, 62% supported kidnapping IDF soldiers and holding them hostage, and 53% were in favor or teaching songs about hating Jews in Palestinian schools.
When given a quote from the Hamas Charter about the need for battalions from the Arab and Islamic world to defeat the Jews, 80% agreed. Seventy-three percent agreed with a quote from the charter (and a hadith, or tradition ascribed to the prophet Muhammad) about the need to kill Jews hiding behind stones and trees.
But only 45% said they believed in the charter’s statement that the only solution to the Palestinian problem was jihad. [min fetstil]
Endast 45% av palestierna anser att lösningen på palestiniernas problem var jihad! Puh, endast nästan hälften.
Lite smaskigt också att 70% av palestinierna anser att judar ska dödas i enlighet med Hamas stadgar.
Denna opinionsundersökning borde uppmärksammas. Den skulle kunna ändra mångas bild av Israel-Palestinakonflikten.
