One-third of Palestinian Authority Arabs have expressed support for the brutal massacre of the Fogel family in Itamar last month, according to a poll conducted by the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah.
Arab terrorists slaughtered five members of the family, including the parents and a three-month old baby, while they were in their bedrooms on a Friday night, on the Jewish Sabbath.
The results of the survey cast further doubt on the likelihood of the PA being a “peace partner” for Israel. Evidence continues to pile up that the PA has sanctioned the incitement of the Arab community to carry out violent attacks on Israeli civilians and soldiers.
Concerning the chances of a copy-cat “uprising” that has spread throughout out Arab countries, there is little chance of it happening here, according to the respondents.
Two-thirds of the PA Arabs and almost three-quarters of Israelis said that demonstrations would not be capable of causing the erasure of a Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria.
However, slightly more than half of the PA Arabs feel a need for Gaza Arabs to organize protests against the de facto Hamas government.
