Just one comment about your reply :
It's always difficult not to consider the interest of a publisher according to it's origins, without pointing the finger at the origins of the
individuals. If goyims can't criticize Israel without considerations about anti-semitism, why could jewish people publish on the middle east without
raising some questions about their zionist interests ?
In the case of PEW research center :
First director : Donald S. Kellermann (2004-2010)
Current director : Donald Kimelman
Current President : Michael Dimock
In the case of that particular study, PEW themselves admit that due to the conditions in which the survey was taken, the Palestinian territories
display the highest margin of errors of all countries used for the poll (6.3%).
Why say that 35% of the womans think womans should not be allowed to choose to not wear a veil, when you could say that 65% of the womans agree that
the islamic veil is a matter of personal choice ... Ah! rhetoric ...
Also, I'm just not sure the Palestinians consider the Jews as 'civilians'. Civilian - military - settlers, their all Kosher invaders from the most
common Palestinian perspective.
The most embarrassing thing about this survey, is that the Palestinians do not appear to be more religious nuts than the population of most Islamic
countries involved in the poll ... Or to put it in other words, that all Islamic countries in general tend to display some rather high levels of
zealous religious considerations.
This is a point of view I, sadly, share.
Among all the Muslims in the world, the Palestinians are one of the few ones to have a permanent and righteous cause to fight for. They don't need to
put their religion in the balance. Or then, it is because their opponents also uses the religious question to justify its practices that they feel
entitled to do so.
I strongly support the two state solution as well and maybe, the stretch of land between the wall and the green line could be used as some sort of DMZ
at first until the situation cools down. For the settlers in the enclaves, their behaviour, and the upcoming policies of the new government Bibi just
put in place ... that's another topic.
