Most Palestinians see terrorism as a legitimate alternative to negotiations and distrust U.S. mediation in the Middle East, a new poll says. A poll of 1,318 West Bank and Gaza Strip residents, published Sunday by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, found that 75 percent supported the Oct. 4 suicide bombing in Haifa, which killed 21, and 59 percent said such “armed confrontations so far have helped achieve Palestinian rights in a way that negotiations could not.”
