Summary: Significant Opinion results

* By the end of 2002, more Palestinians believe in achieving national goals through both negotiations and armed struggle believing that the peace process is passing though difficult times, yet a majority is pessimistic a peaceful settlement would be reached.

* A large majority of Palestinians do not see a difference between Israeli Likud and Labor candidates for premiership as far as peace is concerned.

* The majority of Palestinians support the continuation of al-Aqsa Intifada in its current form with both popular (i.e. demonstrations, economic boycotts) and military resistance to end Israeli military occupation and establish a Palestinian state based on UN Resolution 242.

* A large number of Palestinians believe the end result of the Intifada is liberating all of historic Palestine.

* The majority of Palestinians believe military operations (including suicide bombings) against Israeli targets are a suitable response to Israeli occupation within the current political situation. Most Palestinians support military operations both inside Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

* A vast majority of Palestinians believe the Palestinian Authority is corrupt to a high degree with a lack of seriousness for reform. Yet, a majority believes Palestinian President Yasser Arafat would be re-elected in free, democratic elections.
