Palestinian polls are interesting.

Consistently over the years, when asked a general question of whether they support armed resistance (terror) or negotiations with Israel, the results would be roughly half and half, seesawing between supporters and opponents of terror.

But when there is a specific terror attack, Palestinians overwhelmingly support that attack

The most egregious example was in the wake of the 2008 attack on students at the Mercaz Harav yeshiva - 84% of  Palestinians supported that massacre. 

75% supported the Maxim restaurant suicide bombing in Haifa in 2003 that killed 20 Israelis.

77% supported a double bus suicide bombing that killed 16 in Beersheva in 2004. 

Now, after the mini-war last month, Palestinians are overwhelmingly supportive of Hamas shooting rockets towards Israeli civilans.

They support Hamas shooting rockets to Jerusalem. 72% think that Hamas’ decision to launch rockets at Israeli cities came "in defense of Jerusalem and al Aqsa Mosque."

If an Israeli court would rule that the Arab squatters at Sheikh Jarrah must evacuate, 68% support Hamas shooting thousands more rockets into Israeli cities. Only 18% support non-violent resistance as a result.

Not surprisingly, Hamas' popularity has soared since the fighting. If the postponed/canceled elections would be held today, Hamas beats Fatah 36% to 19%.

Palestinians support terrorist attacks and they support terror groups.  Western media consistently downplays these results, but they are consistent.
