An increasing number of Palestinians back violence against Israel, but a majority still support the peace process, according to a new poll. In the survey, conducted by the Center for Palestinian Research and Studies, 50 percent of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip backed such violence, as opposed to 36 percent in September 1997. Some 68 percent said they backed the peace process, while 29 percent opposed it. The poll has a margin of error of 3 percent.
