What the Guardian won’t report: Palestinians overwhelmingly reject two state solution, lionize terrorists


A recently released Israel Project poll, gauging Palestinian public opinion, is yet another indication that the Palestinians haven’t reconciled themselves with the idea of living in peace with a Jewish state, regardless of the borders.

However, the most disturbing section of the poll – what should give pause to those who still maintain the illusion that the settlements are the main obstacle to peace – are the responses to the following question:

“Now, I’d like you to rate your feelings toward some people, countries, and organizations, with one hundred meaning a VERY WARM, FAVORABLE feeling; zero meaning a VERY COLD, UNFAVORABLE feeling; and fifty meaning not particularly warm or cold. You can use any number from zero to one hundred, the higher the number the more favorable your feelings are toward that person, country, or organization.”

Here are the results, sorted from lowest score (coldest feelings) to the highest (warmest feelings), along with their respective mean scores:


While American Jews (not Israelis, but American Jews) are seen favorably by 7.8% of Palestinians, look who’s seen favorably by 74.5%: Dalal Mughrabi – one of the terrorists responsible for the Coastal Road Massacre in 1978 – a PLO terrorist attack which killed 38 Israeli civilians.

The poll is a chilling and poignant reminder of the breathtaking gullibility of those who defend Arab and Muslim hostility towards Israel as representing merely anti-Zionism and not anti-Semitism.

  1. I wouldn’t be too concerned about Dalal Mughrabi-It’s not uncommon for Israelis to also revere psychopaths.

  2. Muddly is hoping that the more he reveals who he is the more we will revere him, Yohoho.

    Sorry about that Muddly. We prefer our heroes to be sane and something hard for you to grasp, we prefer them to be moral. The vile Dalal who went for children like all her ilk, is anathema to us.

  3. Two-state solution: 41.3
    One-state solution: 28.7

    Why isn’t that in bold?

    All these polls depend on the wording.
    There’s one that suggested that 60% of Palestinians and 75% of Israelis supported the two-state solution.

    Why isn’t that cited?

    Another poll suggested that far more than 25% (see previous figure) of Israelis would ideally like to see the West Bank incorporated into Israel.

    Try to be more objective.

  4. When it comes to anti-semites such facts, polls etc..have no relevance whatsoever. This , so as not to intrude on the commonly held narrative of Israeli guilt and Muslim innocence. This is why ‘The Protocols of the
    Elders of Zion has such an enduring currency to this very day…

  5. Pretz: because the poll indicates that many of the “two-staters” see such a solution as a mere stepping-stone to a one-state solution. Go to page 13 of the poll.

    “Sorry about that Muddly. We prefer our heroes to be sane and something hard for you to grasp, we prefer them to be moral. The vile Dalal who went for children like all her ilk, is anathema to us.”

    Presumably you’ve never heard of Israeli war “hero” Meir Har-Tzion or read his memoirs in which his murderous sadism is self-evident. Isn’t (wasn’t?) he good pals with that other murderous ghoul Ariel Sharon?

  7. Moody’s mum

    Oh mother, please stop whining -are you still pissed off because I never developed an Oedipus complex?

  8. Muddly: how clever of the bloggists. They’ve made up an Israeli demon based on a real person but with a very odd attitude because they can’t find a real one. Biggest joke of the year.

  9. pretzelberg: how rude of you to say ‘try be more objective’ when the analysis is far more objective than your own simplistic acceptance of figures. Don’t you understand how these things work at all?

    “Muddly: how clever of the bloggists. They’ve made up an Israeli demon based on a real person but with a very odd attitude because they can’t find a real one. Biggest joke of the year.”

    Kindly run that by me again but this time keep an eye on the syntax so the comment remains comprehensible. Thanks.

  11. Moody I am more concerned that you seem to have studied the “murderous sadism” of this alleged Israeli war hero in such depth.

    I am wondering whether he is your role model.

  12. Mitnaged

    I happened upon his memoir during a brief spell in prison. Does that qualify as “studied..in such depth”?

  13. Muddly: if you don’t understand English very well you should say so. I’m sure that somebody will be prepared to help you.

  14. Muddly Mita

    I understand english perfectly well. Unfortunately your November 24th 8.26 am comment was written in gibberish-a form of communication with which I am less familiar.

  15. Poor Muddly. I quite understand.

    An inability to cope with the unfamiliar and your lack of conceptual flexibility is a sign of a rigid authoritarian nature.

  16. Muddly Mita

    Oh how clever-you’ve figured me out. I applaud your formidable intellectual prowess.

    PS Do you know any decent crash courses in gibberish-I want to sign up so I can understand your insights better.

    Come now Mita (no pun intended!) Not just any porn but Jews and Arabs shagging together-makes a pleasant change from killing each other. Non?
