Do you ever wonder why polls consistently show that a large portion of the Israeli public supports creating a Palestinian state?
How can it be that — despite the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) support for terrorism, violations of the Oslo Accords and non-stop anti-Israel incitement — so many Israelis seem to be in favor of establishing a Palestinian state next door? Could it be that the answer is found in the asking?
Just last week, newspaper headlines announced that according to a new poll, 47 percent of Israeli Jews still support Palestinian statehood. The poll was carried out by the Tami Steinmetz Center for Peace Research, at Tel Aviv University.
But as with most news about Israel, you need to dig behind the headlines to find out the real story.
