David Pollock on East Jerusalem Palestinians who prefer Israel

September 8, 2011

Pollster David Pollock discusses his poll which found that more Palestinians in East Jerusalem would prefer to end up in Israel over Palestine. Fully 40% say they’d move so as to stay inside Israel if their home were slated to be in Palestine.

These finding are surprising only if one willfully looks away from the reality of life in Jerusalem. Which is, or course, what almost 100% of observers do, as do all of the diplomats, statesmen and self-appointed experts.

    It is an interesting result. I am surprised that the result is uniform across income. It is also interesting that 35% said they preferred being in Israel, but 40% said they would move!

    Whenever I read these things, I always think about Zohair Hamdam. Were any arrests ever made in his case?

    I’m not sure graffiti is adding culture, but it is a nice distraction.
