No popular support, huh?

The JTA reports, “A majority of Israelis and Palestinians back an unofficial peace proposal, a new poll said. Fifty-three percent of Israelis and 56 percent of Palestinians back a summary that was read to them of the ‘Geneva accord,’ which was drafted by out-of-office Israeli politicians and Palestinians close to Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat. Last Friday, thousands of Palestinians demonstrated in Gaza against the proposal. The plan would give the Palestinians a state in the entire West Bank and Gaza Strip, divide Jerusalem and give the Palestinians control of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount. The plan is vague on the demand for a ‘right of return’ to Israel for millions of Palestinian refugees and their descendants.”
