More Than Half In P.A. Support Suicide Attacks


A recent poll conducted by the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion (PCPO) reveals that 51.3% of Arabs in Yesha (Judea, Samaria, and Gaza) and Jerusalem are in favor of murderous suicide attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers in pre-1967 Israel. 45.4% of those surveyed feel that the PLO-initiated Oslo War should continue. In addition, 71.8% feel that Palestinians should support Iraq as they did in 1991, if the United States strikes it again. 1,085 Arab adults participated in the random sample survey.

A Palestinian terrorist was caught today by IDF soldiers and local guards while he was trying to infiltrate the community of Oranit, just north of Rosh HaAyin. He was arrested while cutting the fence around the town, and was transferred to the GSS for questioning.

Hospital officials report a significant improvement in the condition of 9-year-old terrorist shooting victim Yehoshua [Hershel ben Rivka] Shapira, who is now conscious and listed in moderate condition. His two brothers, Pinchas, 12, and Yehuda, 18, who were less seriously hurt, are also showing signs of improvement. Their father, Shlomo Yitzchak Shapira, 48, was murdered in the attack that took place in Hevron two days ago.
