Israelis: The next intifada will be this year

Thursday, July 14, 2011 |  Ryan Jones

A 52 percent majority of Israelis believes the next Palestinian intifada (terrorist uprising) will erupt in September, or shortly thereafter.

That catalyst for this new orgy of violence will be the unilateral Palestinian statehood bid at the UN.

Israelis polled by the Dahaf Institute said they believe the Palestinians will launch a fresh intifada regardless of the outcome of the UN bid, which is expected to be vetoed in the Security Council by the US, but pass as a non-binding resolution in the General Assembly.

In fact, the Palestinians are saying the same thing.

A poll conducted last month by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Opinion found that 76 percent of Palestinians feel the next step after winning a General Assembly vote on statehood will be to go to war against Israel.
