An opinion poll conducted by Birzeit University's Arab World for Research & Development (AWRAD) revealed that a majority of surveyed Palestinians in the West Bank support the October 7 massacre carried out by hamas, and an even wider majority have a positive view of the various terrorist factions.
After over 1,200 people were brutally murdered and over 240 taken hostage, including children and elderly, many civilians tortured and raped, the survey showed that 68 percent in the West Bank strongly supported the massacres and kidnapping, while another 16 percent supported to some extent.
Asked on their view of various entities, respondents answered overwhelmingly in support of the military wings of the terrorist organizations; Palestinian Islamic Jihad with 84 percent; al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades with 80 percent, and al-Qassam Brigades with the highest 89 percent, though Hamas as a whole received a lower 76 percent.
Political bodies, the press, and and other countries were much less appraised. The governing Palestinian Authority was with only 10 percent, though the ruling party Fatah got a slightly higher 23 percent, and the UN received nine.
russia was the most positively viewed country with 40 percent support, Iran received 32 percent, the UK got 3, and dead last were the United States and Israel with zero.
this illustrates how difficult it will be to ever implement a two state solution (which I support). There is majority support for the terrorist groups whose aim isn't to have a two state solution, but to wipe out Israel.
