One can’t help wondering if this poll was really extensive enough to validate such a conclusion or if the questions asked were in some way slanted towards getting the response stated.

Perhaps another poll should be conducted, one that might produce much the same result but from a very different set of enquiries.

IF A JUST AND PERMANENT PEACE SETTLEMENT COULD BE ESTABLISHED BETWEEN ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS, WOULD YOU SUPPORT SUCH AN ARRANGEMENT?

Answer: Yes/No/Maybe.

DO YOU WANT TO HAVE GUARANTEED SECURITY AT EVERY LEVEL FOR ALL THOSE IN EACH OF THE TWO COMMUNITIES THAT ARE CURRENTLY IN DISPUTE OVER PROPERTY RIGHTS TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL?

Answer: Yes/No/Maybe.

WOULD YOU STILL BE IN FAVOUR  OF ACHIEVING BOTH THESE AIMS IF THIS REQUIRED SOME SMALL BUT BARELY DISCERNIBLE RISK INVOLVING THE TRANSFER OF LEGAL TITLE TO THE ‘OTHER SIDE’ OF A RANDOMLY SELECTED PART OF ISRAEL ITSELF?

Answer: Yes/No/Maybe.

WOULD YOU STILL BE IN FAVOUR OF ACHIEVING BOTH THESE AIMS IF IT BECAME POSSIBLE FOR LEGAL TITLE TO A RANDOMLY SELECTED PART OF ISRAEL TO BE UNDERWRITTEN BY UNIVERSAL ACCLAMATION AND GRANTED TO ISRAELIS AND ALL THEIR POSTERITY UNTIL THE END OF RECORDED TIME?

Answer: Yes/No/Maybe.

WOULD YOU BE HAPPY TO DEPART THIS LIFE IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT, BY AGREEING TO ALL OF THE ABOVE, YOU HAD CONTRIBUTED TO LIFTING THE SCOURGE OF WAR AND CONFLICTS OF A VERY SIMILAR NATURE FROM THE LONG-SUFFERING BACKS OF ALL MANKIND?

Answer: Yes/No/Maybe.
