Survey: 70 percent of Palestinians support one-state solution

In the period 12-15 February, 2007, Near East Consulting (NEC) conducted a phone survey of over 1200 randomly selected Palestinians in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and Jerusalem of which 806 were successfully completed. It is worth noting that the margin of error is +/- 3.4% with a 95% confidence level. The main findings: 75% of Palestinians do not think that [in principle] Israel has the right to exist, 70% support One State. Furthermore, 51% of Palestinians feel less secure since the January 2006 elections, as compared to 48% last month, and 44% in December¬†2006.
