Quoting the results of the latest released opinion poll released by the
Palestinian Center for Public Opinion, 49.4% voiced varying degrees of
condemnation for the Kassam rockets fired from Gaza in Israel, but 46.2%
showed support for the attacks.
Almost 87% of poll participants said that they missed former President Yasser Arafat, and in a reflective figure, almost 45% are unhappy with current PA President Mahmoud Abbas and his performance as their leader.
While the outlook on peace negotiations with Israel was generally bleak
and 31.3% of those polled expressed a fear of violent resistance
against any unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state, 46.2% said
they would generally be in favor a UN multinational presence in the
West Bank and Gaza "in the event of a final peace treaty with Israel."
