    But what's interesting - and what the article doesn't include - is that it's the Gaza respondents that provided that majority(61%Gaza/44%WB). Seems the numbers are directly associated to the level of oppression they've been subjected to, which in turn implies that the sentiment in general is a direct result of Israel's oppression. What's also interesting, is that the above numbers indicate that roughly 55% opposed the attacks in the WB, and roughly 35% did in Gaza - DESPITE Israel's oppression - when in fact favoring them is really an understandable and natural human response considering what they've endured at the hands of Israel. I don't at all agree with those who support the attacks, but I can certainly understand why.
