88 per cent of Arab Palestinians wants to use arms to “remove” Israel from Arab soil. But they are divided on issues on what comes next.
A poll by the Arab World Research and Development (AWRAD) in Ramallah shows that 88 per cent of Arab Palestinians believe that the results of the latest Hamas-Israel escalation in Gaza last month prove that armed struggle is the best means of achieving Palestinian independence.
42 percent of West Bank respondents said they preferred the approach of Hamas to that of Fatah.
If we look closely on the answer to four of the questions, we see that Arabs only agree to use terror and violence. Half feel PLO is the best to evict the Jews from “Palestine”, the other half support the Hamas. Half of the Muslims desire a two-state-solution, the others wants to see a “Jew-free zone”.

When 1.500 rocket were fired from Gaza into Israel, any sane man would understand that “the peace process” has lost.
The Arab sees this differently. Because they believe there is no “peace” without a solid Israeli defeat, and Jews living in full submission to “allah” and his messenger.
That 75,8 per cent of the Arab Palestinians claims “the Government of Israel” who lost the last “conflict in Gaza” would come as no surprise. That is a similar number to the Egyptians who supported the Muslim Brotherhood in the last election, or more radical Islamist groups.
Who do they think they can fool?
They are all Arabs and Muslims.
Obviously they can only fool people who do not pay proper attention.
