The more that jihadists (and all Muslims) think that terror works, the more terror we will see. From The World Tribune, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
RAMALLAH “” Most Palestinians think the Islamic insurgency forced Israel’s decision to unilaterally withdraw from the Gaza Strip, according to a new poll.
The survey reported that a majority of Palestinians credit strikes by Hamas and Islamic Jihad for the decision by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to withdraw from the Gaza Strip and northern West Bank and evict their 10,000 Jewish residents. The poll also found, however, that only 40 percent of those surveyed want the attacks to continue.
The study was conducted by the Center for Opinion Polls and Survey Studies, based in An Najah University in Nablus.
Forty percent of respondents agreed that “pressure caused by Palestinian resistance” led to the Israeli withdrawal decision. Another 34 percent said Israel regarded its presence in the Gaza Strip as a “security and economic inexpediency.”
Twenty-two percent of respondents did not cite the Palestinian war as a reason for the Israeli withdrawal. Instead, they said the pullout decision stemmed from international pressure on Israel.
