A majority of Palestinians support terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians, according to a new poll. Fifty-three percent of Palestinians in the poll, taken just before the March 22 assassination of Hamas leader Sheik Ahmed Yassin, support the attacks, a rise of 5 percent from a December poll. Some 87 percent of respondents in the recent poll, taken by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Social Research, support attacks on Israeli soldiers, and 86 percent favor attacks on Israeli settlers.
