Support for terror up among Palestinians

Monday, April 21, 2008 |  by Staff Writer

The results of an opinion poll published on Monday showed an increase in support for anti-Israel terrorism among the residents of the Gaza Strip, as well as steady support for the area's Hamas rulers.

Conducted by the Jerusalem Media and Communication Center, a Palestinian-run polling agency, 65 percent of Gazans want the terrorists living among them to continue attacking Israeli civilians.

Over half of all Palestinians living in Gaza said they hold positive views of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, even though a recent poll found 81 percent of Gazans believe Hamas rule has worsened their economic situation.

Another recent poll conducted among Palestinians in both Gaza and the West Bank found that if elections were held today, Haniyeh would be voted "president" of the Palestinian Authority over Western-backed leader Mahmoud Abbas.
