Most back attack on Israeli outlet restaurant

reports the Gulf News.

Seventy-five per cent of Palestinians support the suicide bombing of an Israeli restaurant two weeks ago in which 21 people died, a survey showed yesterday.

In a question asking whether they supported or opposed the October 4 bombing in the northern city of Haifa, 75 per cent said they either supported the attack or strongly supported it. Seventeen per cent of respondents said they opposed the bombing and 4.4 per cent said they strongly opposed the attack.

Ayoub Mustafa, one of the pollsters, told Reuters the number may have been artificially high because respondents were not told in the question that all the 21 dead were civilians.
