Shock horror! Don’t they…don’t they want peace, like Condi Rice says?

Of 37 populations around the world, Palestinians rank first in their level of support for a nuclear-armed Iran, a new poll has revealed.
The survey, taken by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, found that 58 percent of the Palestinian public are in favor of Tehran acquiring atomic weapons, making Palestinians the only Middle Eastern population not opposed to an Iranian bomb.
“Most of the Muslim countries surveyed have negative or mixed opinions of Iran. Majorities among just three Muslim publics — in Pakistan, Bangladesh and the Palestinian territories — say they favor Iran acquiring nuclear weapons,” the survey said.
The poll added that “positive views of Iran have declined sharply over the past year in three Muslim countries — Indonesia, Egypt, and, especially, Turkey.”
When it came to attitudes towards the US, Israel and the Palestinians were placed, unsurprisingly, on opposite ends of the spectrum.
Unsurprisingly? When you consider all the money the U.S. has poured into the PA, one would think Palestinians would be overflowing with gratitude. But of course, this sort of thing never wins over the hearts and minds of those who are imbued with jihadist attitudes — which doesn’t stop American officials from trying it over and over again anyway.
