Hundreds of Arab residents of Judea, Samaria and Gaza rioted on Thursday for "Nakba Day," the Arabic word for catastrophe designating the creation of the Jewish state of Israel 66 years ago, when hundreds of thousands of local Arabs left Israel at the behest of invading Arab armies.

JERUSALEM (Worthy News)-- A public opinion poll published on Tuesday showed that half of the Palestinian public supports an armed intifada against Israel, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The poll, published by the Nablus-based An-Najah University, included 1,360 Palestinians (860 from the West Bank and 500 from the Gaza Strip) above the age of 18, was conducted during the period from 11-13 September. It has a margin of error of three percent.

The poll showed that 49% of respondents favored an armed intifada against Israel as opposed to 44% who said they were against it.

Still, 56% said they supported an unarmed and non-violent resistance against Israel, while 35% expressed their opposition. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Poll-Half-of-Palestinians-support-armed-intifada-against-Israel-375566" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
