A newly released poll that was conducted at the start of the month by the Arab World for Research and Development found that the overwhelming majority of Palestinians supported the October 7 terrorist attacks against Israel and hate the United States.
The survey comes after Palestinian terrorists with Hamas invaded Israel in an unprecedented terrorist attack last month. Palestinian women and children engaged in the attacks as approximately 3,000 terrorists slaughtered 1,200 innocent Israelis, wounding 5,300 more, and kidnapping more than 240.
The poll surveyed 668 Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as Israel conducted military operations to root out the terrorists responsible for the attacks.
