Poll finds most Palestinians oppose ‘peace process’, prefer armed intifada

by WorldTribune Staff, December 14, 2016

More than half of Palestinians favor an armed intifada against Israel as opposed to a two state solution, according to a new poll.

2008_1107_israel_palestine__mThe poll, which was conducted by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, found 65 percent of Palestinian Arabs in Gaza, Judea and Samaria have lost faith in the two state solution and 53 percent support the intifada.

A majority of 53 percent also prefer U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to stay out of the peace process completely, while 40 percent of respondents said that they wanted Trump to play any role, big or small, in the peace process.

A whopping 83 percent of respondents said they did not believe that President Barack Obama made a serious effort to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict, compared to only 10 percent that said he did.

Support for alternative methods to the peace process was shown to be growing as 74 percent of respondents said that they favor an international solution to the conflict and 62 percent said that they favor nonviolent resistance and protests.

The poll was conducted last week among 1,270 Palestinian Arabs and had an error margin of 3 percent.
