Majority of Palestinians Reject Two-State Solution

A new poll conducted by An-Najah University finds that a majority of Palestinians reject the concept of two states living side by side in peace and security, as the saying goes.

Do you support or reject the creation of two states on the historic land of Palestine (a Palestinian state and Israel)?

42.5% I support
54.3% I reject
3.2% No opinion/I do not know

If a poll found that the majority of Israelis rejected the two-state solution, it would make headlines around the world. Yet when repeated polls of Palestinians find solid majority support for terrorism against Israel and rejection of peace with Israel, nobody even has the chance to bat an eye, because nobody hears about it. Such information is not viewed as newsworthy. Remarkable.
