Hur tänker palestinierna?

Jerusalem Post försöker beskriva vad som driver palestinska tonåringar till att gå ut och mörda judar och vilken syn på verkligheten dessa människor har.

Palestinian views 
 Why are so many Palestinian teenagers waking up in the morning, grabbing a knife from the family kitchen, and attacking Jews – actions that usually result in their own deaths? What could motivate a 19-year-old Palestinian grandson to stab an 80-yearold Jewish grandmother in the back? The teenage terrorists are often described as “lone wolves” because their violence is spontaneous and lacking the organization of previous terrorists, such as suicide bombers. But this categorization fails to acknowledge the broad support that Palestinian society gives them, not to mention the certainty that they will be rewarded for their deeds in heaven and on earth by having a street, or square, or stadium named in honor of their “holy martyrdom.”

"...Polisar examined more than 330 surveys carried out by four major independent Palestinian research institutes to determine what Palestinians think of Israel and Jews, Zionism and the value of carrying out terrorist attacks:

• With regard to the Gaza wars, a large majority of Palestinians are convinced that Israel deliberately targeted civilians and that Hamas was blameless for positioning its leadership, fighters and weapons in residential areas.

• With regard to Israel’s goals, an average of 59% think Israel wants to “extend its borders to cover all the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and to expel its Arab citizens.”

• A 51% majority of Palestinians believes Israel will destroy al-Aksa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock shrine and replace them with a synagogue.

• “Palestinians characterize Israelis as belligerent and untrustworthy but clever and strong, and finger Judaism as the most violent of all religions.”

The Palestinian Center for Public Opinion asked residents of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip: “Do you think that Jews have some rights to the land along with Palestinians?” Only 12% agreed that “Both Jews and Palestinians have rights to the land,” while more than 80% asserted that “This is Palestinian land and Jews have no rights to it.”
In a 2001 PSR poll 98% of Palestinians said the killing of 29 Palestinians in Hebron by Baruch Goldstein in 1994 was terrorism, but only 15% were willing to say the same for an attack by suicide bombers that killed 21 Israelis at the Dolphinarium discotheque in Tel Aviv in 2001. An average finding of six Pew polls over the past decade is that 59% of Palestinians see suicide bombings as justified.


Who are the attackers, what’s driving them, and where is the ongoing terror surge headed? Here’s what Israel’s security services have established so far
