i want to make a gentle disagreement. Some Palestinians support terrorism because they don't have anything else to support. It is not clear that any really want peace with Israel, but they do want peace. They have been told over and over they were wronged by Israel during the 1948 conflict . Many believe Israel has no right to exist and should be driven into the sea; and the territory currently constituting Israel plus Gaza plus the West Bank should be Palestinian. They wear jackets showing all the territory as Palestinian. The more thoughtful Palestinians understand the terrorism is counterproductive but they do not know what else to do. The survey does not show that some Palestinians want peace with Israel. That is just a surmise.
