The Palestinians view of Israel per Pew's latest market research

So we are told that the Palestinians want to live in peace alongside Israel but Pew's market research shows that only 14% of those in the Palestinian Territories think that there is a way for Israel and the Palestinian Territories to coexist peacefully and that 45% support armed struggle as the best way to achieve statehood with another 22% supporting armed struggle along with non-violent and negotiations.

It's strange that the BBC and many western politicians keep telling us that the Palestinians want peace and that Israel's actions are the main obstacles to peace, when the Palestinians have been saying the opposite to pollsters for years. In a 2007 poll, 77% Palestinian respondents said “the rights and needs of the Palestinian people cannot be taken care of as long as the state of Israel exists.” In a 2011 poll, 61% of Palestinians said they saw a two-state solution only as a stepping-stone to Israel’s ultimate eradication.

To give the Palestinians their due, they don't hide their aspirations, it's idiot Western journalists and politicians who should know better, unless their real aim is also the destruction of Israel.
