ICEJ Summarizes Stanley Greenberg Poll of Palestinians in Gaza, West Bank

July 15, 2011

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) produces an excellent daily newsgram from Israel. Todays report summarizes some data produced by pollster Stanley Greenberg based on questions to Palestinians living in theWest BankandGaza. It is not encouraging:

In related news, a recent poll of Palestinians living in theWest Bankand the Gaza Strip completed this week by American pollster Stanley Greenberg, which showed that a large majority of Palestinians have lost faith in the promise of the two state solution and are determined to create a single Palestinian State between the Jordan and the Mediterranean. The same poll showed a majority of Palestinians denied any Jewish connection to Jerusalem, supported the kidnapping of IDF soldiers and holding them hostage and teaching schoolchildren songs about hating Jews.

Not only is this poll not encouraging, but the results dont support the hypothesis that the Palestinians are very much interested in achieving Peace with Israel and the Jews who live there. (Note: "denied any Jewish connection to Jerusalem" - relates to their nutty denial that the Jewish people had an ancient presence in Jerusalem. )
