3. Those people are NOT people to make
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (04.06.11)
peace with...Mr. Hussein Obama...but I am sure, that you will ignore that poll just like you ignore your own ones...
4. Yeah, and 63% OPPOSE the attack
Michael Steiner ,   Bahrain   (04.06.11)
which is a SEISMIC change in attitude from relatively recently, when this type of attack would have attracted widespread approbation among the Palestinians. In fact, I am beginning to think that we are becoming more bloodthirsty than the Palestinians. It is certainly not beyond the pale to imagine far more than 32% supporting a massacre of a Palestinian family among certain sections of the Israeli society.
5. Poll Israelis for same act to Arab Family
Roland Seener ,   London England   (04.06.11)
These 32% should be disposesed.If a reverse poll was taken,acording to our higher human principles there would be a 0 % return in the count.For this statistic we must ever be wary,To be 'Holy' there must be separation.Hashem's order "Thou shouldst not kill which we meticulously carry out proves our superiority over mob sentiment
6. A very lame attempt by the Israeli left ....
Lee ,   Manchester UK   (04.06.11)
to make the 'palestinians' appear more human. Who you trying to kid yourselves or the murderers that love nothing more than to slit baby Jews throats while they sleep? Pathetic.
7. # 1 I like it too.
Salma ,   Palestine   (04.06.11)
Ynet, do you think "63% of Palestinians opposed Itamar attack" as a title will not attract your reader's attention ?! just wondering.
8. why are you doing statistics on that??
Thai worker !!!   (04.06.11)

10. #8 you need to GET A LIFE
Kyle ,   Southpark, CO, USA   (04.06.11)
Where are you getting your crazy "facts"? Presstv?
11. To: No. 8
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (04.06.11)
Thai worker? I didn't know there were that many Thai workers in the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade -- the group which claimed credit for the attack. "Kill 2000 'palestinians'?" Care to document that?
12. to # 8
Rafi ,   Montreal, Canada   (04.06.11)
???? get out from under your rock...and so was the dead British woman from the Jerusalem bus attack a story...and the6 millions holocaust victims...another story...Ignorance is indeed dangerous...get out of the middle ages and in to the 21 st individual on any level in Israel gets away with anything...this is a democracy unlike the Arab regimes and dictators who answered to no one least until now...Syria to follow hopefully for the good of its people. Go to school man it is still time maybe!....poor you!
13. To: No. 7
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (04.06.11)
A four-month old baby had its throat slit, two other children were horrifically murdered, as were their sleeping parents, and only 63% of ersatz "Palestinians" opposed the killing? What kind of people are you?
14. to #1, 4 and 7
Rafi ,   Montreal, Canada   (04.06.11)
Little Elad is no longer, after a knife went through his little young and tender heart...I know we have our crazies too...but I would like to believe their number is minute unless provoked and reacting! A third of Palestinians including mothers is no positive mark for any civilized many of the 2 third are against it for practical reasons, those who know that there is no end to violence against those who are really repulsed by that barbarian act against humanity and other G-d's creatures?...I wonder ?
15. # 8
Birdi ,   Israel   (04.06.11)
Very, very dumb of you to try to impersonate an Arab.
16. Poll
J.K. ,   Brooklyn USA   (04.06.11)
A pleasant surprise,only 32% of palestinians support Itamar attack ,is this for real ?.hard to believe.
17. Clearly, the Pals are a partner for peace!
Howie ,   Montreal, Canada   (04.06.11)
The only peace the Pals are willing to give us is the peace of the grave. Netanyahu and Peres and Lieberman, next time you talk to an American, a European or a South American leader, show them and read them the results of this poll. We are dealing with barbarians. Time to get into the export/deport business with these Pals.
18. reeducation
mohson   (04.06.11)
No fan of olmert,he tried a non violent approach, sitting with abbas adorned with plo flags, in his residence, offered the best food, concessions that would make chamberlain look like a war hero, sympathy for the nakba, talked and talked, sat and talked. Arab response- tractor terror and 35% endorsing itamar butchery. there really is no point to this other than europe trying to appease its own moslems. The coming 3 wars will take care the palestinians as major casualties will result across gaza and judea and samara. it would be a good idea if all of them leave voluntarily as hezbollah missiles will find their way and will wreatk havoc in ramallahs, jericho,hebron and qualiquia. Go before it is too late.
19. No. 11
Michael ,   Haifa   (04.06.11)
Actually Sara according to JPost it was the "Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades of Imad Mughniyeh" who claimed responsibility for the attack and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades officials have gone on the record as denying that "Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades" committed the attack and that they had no connection with this "Imad Mugniyeh" group. I know that facts aren't your strong point but please try and keep up with what actually happened and who claimed what.
20. So much for the "extremely small minority" claim
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (04.06.11)
Whenever western apologists for Arab or Muslim violence address the issue, they always refer to the "extremely small minority" that are radical, violent, or inclined to fundamentalism. Well, this poll puts paid to that claim. The same holds for earlier polls that showed broad support for Osama bin Laden in the Muslim world, others that show broad support for apostasy laws in Egypt and Pakistan, yet others that show broad support among young Muslims for a sharia state in the UK, and so on.
21. yup, and we wanna make peace wit them?
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (04.06.11)
so, now the world can understand the type of piece we will have with the PALs. When they can understand the hurt and terror of a innocent family massacred, then perhaps there will some one there to talk to...
22. #4 - this is still outrageous.
Daniel ,   Miami   (04.06.11)
And it certainly IS beyond the pale to think that 32% of any section of Israeli society would support such a massacre of a Palestinian family. I think your time in Bahrain has negatively skewed your views on the Jewish people.
23. reminds me of the 9/11 dancing
zionist forever   (04.06.11)
On 9/11 when the WTC towers came crashing down the palestinians were dancing in the streets and it only stopped when Arafat ordered them to. Now Israeli children have their throats cut as they lay in their bed a third of the palestinians support it. THE PALESTINIANS REALLY ARE PARTNERS FOR PEACE
24. #4, so-called "Michael Steiner" - what do you mean by "we"?
Chatich   (04.07.11)
"I am beginning to think that we are becoming more bloodthirsty than the Palestinians." By "we" I assume you are referring to Baharainis, because you clearly haven't a shred of a clue about Israel or Judaism. The only "sections of Israeli society" where you'd find anybody supporting such barbarity, are the prisons that hold the pal terrorists. Even Israeli arabs are not that depraved. You are clearly an imposter. I'd bet a fiver your name is actually Mahmood al Salahi. Don't write your odious comments in our good name.
25. Re #4
Andrew Brehm   (04.07.11)
Speak for yourself! I don't know why you would support a massacre of an Arab family, but generally Israelis and Jews are not out on the streets celebrating the deaths of children.
26. let ...
Y.G. ,   israel   (04.07.11)
Let the scum who did this, resist arrest. Please.....
27. making the ratio reversed does not change the fact that
observer ,   Egypt   (04.07.11)
your own people Jews perpetrated the massacre. INSIDE JOB. try another evasion.
28. # 24
Birdi ,   Israel   (04.07.11)
I've been asking Steiner the same question over & over, without getting a reply.
29. Jews as demons
Beauchard ,   Amsterdam   (04.07.11)
Jew-haters see Jews as demons. They see nothing wrong in killing baby demons. Exaggeration? Read the TalkBack in their favourite newspaper Haaretz..
30. #4 - Bahrain&Israel
Ros ,   מודיעין   (04.07.11)
I cannot speak on behaf of bahrain, but i was born in europe and i live in israel and from the "westren" point of view, any murder of children and woman and unarmed men is despicable and despised, I would confidently say that at the worse case, 90% of Israelis would be against such murder of Palestinian individual, not to say a whole family
