The latest poll from the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research shows a large majority of Palestinians want Mahmoud Abbas to go - and be replaced by someone even more extreme.

66% of Palestinians want Abbas to resign as president of the PA while only 30% want him to remain in office. 

But when it comes to who they want to replace him, the choices are pretty much all terrorists.

People who support Fatah would like to see Marwan Barghouti as their candidate, and if he would run he would handily beat any Hamas candidate. Even if Barghouti would create a new political party, he would get more votes than Fatah would under Abbas.

Barghouti is in an Israeli prison for murder and terrorism charges.

If there was an election between Abbas and Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, Haniyeh would win 50%-43%. But if Barghouti would run against Haniyeh, Barghouti would handily win, 61%-37%. 

Interestingly, Mohammad Dahlan, who Abbas considers his major Fatah rival, has little support within the territories, and only 7% would like to see him replacing Abbas. Current PA prime minister Mohammad Shtayyeh would do much better, and an election between him and Haniyeh is a deadlock. 

The split between Gaza and the West Bank continues, with Hamas supported by the majority in Gaza and Fatah preferred in the West Bank, although not overwhelmingly. 

The poll also showed that 48% of Palestinians would like to see a return to an "armed intifada," meaning terrorism. Similarly, a plurality of Palestinians think the most effective means of ending the Israeli "occupation" is terror, 39% choosing "armed struggle" over  35% who chose negotiations.

The Palestinian affinity for terrorism and terrorist leaders is something that the Western media tries very hard not to report. But it is there in the surveys, consistently, month after month.

This poll was done in conjunction with German NGO Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
