  • Despite Official Boycott, Over Half of East Jerusalem Arabs Want to Vote in City Elections – Nir Hasson
    Palestinians have consistently boycotted Jerusalem municipal elections and those who sought to run for election were violently attacked until they withdrew their candidacies. Yet a new poll by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion found that nearly 60% believe they should participate in municipal elections, while only 14% oppose doing so. Moreover, 97% opposed a redivision of the city along the 1967 lines that would end free access to both sides of the city. (Ha’aretz)
