You Believe Polls?


New Poll!

I also edited it semantically:

Two-thirds of Israelis support a total or partial resumption of settlement building communities in the occupied West Bank Judea and Samaria, according to a poll broadcast on Wednesday, as peace talks are due to restart in Washington.

Thirty nine percent of those questioned said they favour construction resuming in all the settlements communities from September 26, when a partial 10-month moratorium imposed by the Israeli government under US pressure expires.

Another quarter said they thought construction should only restart in the larger settlement residency blocks [sic!: blocs] and not in smaller, isolated settlements communities, according to the poll, aired on private Channel Ten TV station.

Only 21 percent supported a continuation of the building freeze, with the remainder undecided.

The poll was carried out by the Gal Hadash Institute on behalf of Channel Ten, shortly after an attack in the Hebron area of the West Bank Judea on Tuesday that killed four Israeli settlers revenants.
