Palestinian Center for Public Opinion: Majority of Palestinians support the two state solution

A recent survey by the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion showed that despite the violent clashes which have taken place in recent months, a majority of Palestinians support the two state solution and are even optimistic about the possibility of peace with Israelis.

Ma'an News Agency reports: "54 percent of Palestinians polled voiced support for the two-state solution 'in principle,' while only 31 percent opposed it. Although no option was given, respondents who opposed ostensibly supported a one-state solution for both Israelis and Palestinians to live side-by-side or else a single state for Palestinians only. A majority of Palestinians also expressed optimism over the possibility of peace with Israelis in the future, with 43 percent saying it was 'certain' or 'likely,' while 26 percent said it was 'possible' that there would peace when the respondents' children had reached adulthood."
