The Palestine Center for Policy and Survey Research released the results of a new survey, and it shows that Palestinian Arabs have very little desire to live in peace with Israel.

The finding that received some press attention is that 48% support and 51% oppose a two-state solution. But there are more interesting results that explain why.

The constant barrage of insane anti-Israel propaganda in the media and schools is part of the reason. For example, an overwhelming majority of 85% believe that "Israel’s long term aspiration is to annex the lands occupied in 1967 and expel their population or deny them their rights" while only 15% believe that Israel’s long term aspiration is to insure its security and withdraw from all or most of the territories.

Another overwhelming majority believe that "al Haram al Sharif is in grave danger:" 50% believe that Israel intends to destroy al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock and replace them with a Jewish temple; 21% believe that it intends to divide the plateau on which the two mosques sit so that Jews would have a synagogue alongside the Muslim holy places; and 10% believe that Israel intends to simply allow Jews to pray there. 81% say they are worried that Israel would demolish or confiscate their homes even though, another reflection of how their media coverage is out of whack with a reality where some 97% live under PA rule.

Even more bizarrely, 59% believe that Hamas won the Gaza war last year.

When a population is fed nothing but incitement and lies, how can anyone expect them to act rationally?

So we then see that a large plurality support terror against Israel. 42% think that armed terrorism is the most effective to get a state, 29% think negotiations is the most effective way, and 24% think "non-violent resistance" (which includes stone throwing and firebombs, in their worldview) is the most effective way.

Even though a majority now opposes a two-state solution, 69% oppose a one-state solution in which Arabs and Jews enjoy equal rights. Which means that the solution a plurality or majority support is one where Jews are second class citizens, or expelled.

Then there was this curious result:
When asked about the long term aspiration of the PA and the PLO, 64% said that it is to recover all or parts of the land occupied in 1967 while 26% said it was to conquer the state of Israel or conquer the state of Israel and kill most of the Jews.
Isn't it interesting so many Palestinians don't think of the PA as wanting a peaceful two-state solution?
