PMW exposes that majority of Palestinians
believe Israel was behind Paris terror attacks
Headline: Most Palestinians think Israel involved in Paris attacks — poll
by Judah Ari Gross
A poll conducted by the Palestinian Ma’an News Agency after this month’s string of terror attacks in Paris yielded a startling conclusion: the vast majority of respondents believe Israel may have played a role in the Paris attacks… 84.4 percent of Palestinians interviewed, believed that the attacks were “suspicious, and that Israel may be behind it.”
Only 8.7 percent of those interviewed thought the attacks were the result of growing Islamic fundamentalism in Europe.
The results of this poll are likely a disappointment to those hoping for a more moderate response from the Palestinian population, but it will not come as a surprise to readers of Al-Hayat al-Jadida. Since the attacks earlier this month, Palestinian Media Watch reported, the official PA media has been filled with conspiracy theories linking Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Mossad and Jewish leaders to the Paris attacks.
