News Press Release
December 1, 2015

A poll of 1363 Palestinian Arabs (including 863 living in Judea and Samaria and 500 living in Gaza), conducted by An-Najah National University’s Center for Polls and Survey Studies, from November 20 to 22, 2015, reveals that Palestinian Arabs overwhelmingly reject a Palestinian state that would live in peace with Israel as a final resolution; support ceasing the Palestinian Authority (PA)’s (already limited) security cooperation with Israel; support anti-Israel boycotts; and support a unity government with the Hamas terrorist organization.

An overwhelming 72.9% reject the creation of a Palestinian Arab state on the 1967 borders with some land exchange as a final resolution for the Palestinian cause (versus 21% in favor).

An overwhelming 72.9% reject the creation of a Palestinian Arab state on the 1967 borders with some land exchange as a final solution for the Palestinian cause.

There was also widespread support (69.8%) for the PLO Central Council’s decision to cease security coordination between the PA and Israel (versus 23.5% who did not support the decision).

Respondents overwhelmingly supported speeding up implementation of the Fatah-Hamas terrorist organization’s “national reconciliation agreement,” by a margin of 87% to 8.6%.

And a walloping 84.2% of respondents support boycotting Israeli goods and products (versus only 13.2% that did not support the anti-Israel boycott). 

ZOA president Morton A. Klein stated: “These anti-peace, pro-terror poll numbers make it clear that the Palestinian Arabs have no interest in peace, period. They won’t even accept a state on virtually all of the disputed territories if it means accepting Israel and ending all claims against her. These results make it clear that the Palestinian Arabs won’t accept Israel within any borders no matter how small. The issue for the Palestinian Arabs is not land or statehood – it’s opposing Israel’s very existence.

“It is painfully clearly  that the Palestinian Arabs also support murder and violence against innocent Jews. Why are president Obama, Sec’y Kerry and world leaders not forcefully condemning the attitudes of Palestinian Arabs and their leaders like dictator Mahmoud Abbas. Why are they not condemning the vicious anti-Semitic incitement in their schools, media, speeches, and children’s camps. The world’s silence is deafening and frightening.
