Tiny minority of extremists update: a survey shows that almost three-quarters of the Arab world wants the violent jihad terrorist group Hamas, which has boasted of its murders of civilian non-combatants, to take over for Yasir Arafat. From the Jerusalem Post, with thanks to LGF:
A survey of the Arab world organized by the Al-Arabia network website after the death of Yasser Arafat, showed 73.72% want a Hamas representative to replace Arafat, ITIM reported. In contrast only 0.7% expect that one of the PLO leaders will take over.
25.58% were in favor of an independent candidate.
113,107 participants from across the Arab world took part in the survey.
