Some Palestinians actually oppose suicide bombings:
According to the poll, more than 43 percent of the Palestinians in the West Bank and Jerusalem support ending suicide attacks in Israel, while 42.8% believe the bombings should continue.
But less we think this is a trend:
The poll did not include residents of the Gaza Strip, a fact that explains the drop in the number of Palestinians who favor suicide attacks.
Now here's a curious part:
Asked how they would vote in the elections for the PA, 44.9% said they would choose Arafat. Imprisoned West Bank Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti came in second with 15.6%. Former PA prime minister Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) received 12.1%, while his successor, Ahmed Qurei, came in fourth with 11.3%.
And how many years over-due are these elections? 7 I think. Does this mean people actually expect elections some time soon? That would be a change.
