More than two-thirds, 68 percent to be exact, of Palestinian Authority Arabs believe that American intervention in Middle East policies harms stability in the region, according to a new poll carried out in mid-September by the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion.
The same survey also revealed that a tiny majority of 50.3 percent favors the resumption of talks between the Palestinian Authority and Israel, but the number jumped to 62.5 percent if Israel were to empty its jails of Palestinian Authority Arabs.
If peace talks fail, a “third intifada” will break out, according to 58.4 cent of those polled.
PA negotiators and leaders have been complaining that the current talks are going nowhere. Three months have gone by in the talks, which were re-started on the basis of a nine-month period for results.
