"Incentives have the potential to change Palestinians' minds, too, the survey found. Nearly a third (32%) of Palestinian respondents who at first rejected a peace deal on the aforementioned terms said they could be persuaded if Israel were to apologize for the suffering of Palestinian refugees. An even larger share, 42%, would rethink their opposition to the peace agreement if Israel recognized the "Arab-Islamic character" of Palestine."

Any thoughts on this poll, especially in comparison to the recent Israel Victory poll?

Daniel Pipes replies:

Polling is very complex - and I have my own article on Palestinian attitudes coming out shortly.

It's hard for me to make sense of the first element - that an apology would so much change the mood. The second one makes more sense, for it concedes that Israel is but a Crusader-like temporary state.
