Polls and Palestinians

Reader comment on item: Polls, Palestinians and the Path to Peace

Submitted by Steven Hess (United States), Feb 18, 2003 at 10:45

Your poll on U.S. perception of Palestinian objectives should have included an additional question. You should have asked these 1000 people polled whether they agree with (support) what they perceive to be the Palestinian objective (destruction of Israel).
When you speak of the voice of the electorate you need to know what that voice is actually saying. Specifically, what is the extent of anti-Israel/anti-Semitic sentiment among those who correctly recognize Palestinian objectives. In short, do they support or reject those objectives.
