A Palestinian child. Photo: Palestine belongs to Palestinians/Facebook. – Nearly 60 percent of all Arab residents of the West Bank and Gaza Strip oppose the future creation of a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines, according to a survey conducted last week by An-Najah University in Nablus.

Among the 1,362 people polled, 59.4% said they oppose the idea as a solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

The survey also found that 61.5% do not believe it is possible to establish a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines because of the current political climate. Some 65.4% of Palestinians in Gaza hold this view, as compared with 59.3% in the West Bank.

Asked if Palestinians must continue with their obligations under the Oslo Accords — even though, according to the survey question, “Israel stopped supporting them” — 74% answered in the negative, while 18.2% said they must continue.

    Now you get nothing.

    But there CANNOT be a one state solution. Don’t for a second think they won’t make it a point to have 10 kids per wife, they absolutely will.

      Were that the case, then the Arabs in Israel would be having ten kids per wife. But, while their birthrate is higher than that of most Israelis, it’s only roughly equal to that of the Hassidics.
