Most West Bank Palestinians want a confederation with Jordan

Post by Guest on Sun May 15, 2016 6:44 am

From a new poll by An Najah University in Nablus:

[ltr]Do you support or reject the creation of a confederation with Jordan on the basis of two independent states with strong institutional relations? [/ltr]

Yes, it says "two independent states" but it sure seems like this might be a possible direction for peace one day down the line.

The poll is also notable for what it didn't ask:

[ltr] Do you support or reject the creation of a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders as a final solution for the Palestinian cause? [/ltr]

If they would have asked "Do you support or reject the creation of a Palestinian state from the river to the sea as a final solution for the Palestinian cause?" the numbers would have been much higher.


These questions were also instructive:

[ltr]Do think that some of the measures that the Palestinian security apparatuses execute have reduced the attacks against Israeli targets?[/ltr]

They agree that the PA has helped clamp down on terror against Jews - and they don't like it. This is despite the fact that this poll showed a slight preference for an non-armed intifada than one that is armed.
