Introduction: As PMW has been reporting in recent days, the spontaneous Palestinian celebrations after the horrific attacks in the United States were genuine expressions of the deep hatred of America, that has been promoted by Palestinian Authority leadership for years. The following public opinion poll from last November is another measurable indicator of this hostility:

The Poll results: "73% of Palestinians support military action against American targets in the region. Regarding suicide missions against American interests in the Middle East 73% supported, and 22% opposed, and it is interesting that the support for attacks against American targets among academics reached 77% compared to 70% among illiterates." [Al Hayat Al Jadida, on Nov. 11 2000.]

The Public opinion Poll was conducted by the Program for Educational Development of Beir Zet University, in Ramallah in the Palestinian Authority, and published in the official Palestinian Authority owned daily. (PMW 09/14/01)
