Poll: Support for Gaza pullout drops below 50 percent!

Thursday, June 09, 2005 | 
According to a poll by Israel’s Channel 2 television, public support for the Gaza withdrawal has declined to an all time low of 48 percent. That’s a plunge from 56 percent last month and a high of 64 percent last year. The poll showed that 48 percent of Israelis back the withdrawal, 33 percent oppose it and 19 percent are undecided. Pollsters say the undecided tend to lean against the plan. Analysts say the public fears a new wave of terror after the army leaves Gaza and is growing weary of the turmoil. "The public is confused by all the tumult over implementing the plan," Shmuel Zakai, a former commander of Israeli forces in Gaza, told Channel 2.
