Palestinian Support for Knifing Jews Decreases to ‘Only’ 58%
The Palestinian Ma’an site, in English, wants to make it look like Palestinians are reducing support for terror attacks, with this headline “Palestinian support for knife attacks on decline, poll finds.”
But if you look at the actual poll, things are not quite that sunny.
Support for the use of knives to attack Israelis remains at 58%. It is better than the 67% from last year, but hardly an indicator of a desire for peace.
Next, “In the absence of peace negotiations,” 56% support a return to an armed intifada, a reduction of 4% from last year.
65% of the public believes that an armed intifada would serve Palestinian national interests in ways that negotiations could not.
65% also opposed any Palestinian Authority actions to stop terror attacks.
Here are the true facts: more than half of all Palestinians support killing Jews. There’s an example of an accurate headline that you won’t see on CNN.
