"But if there was hope, it lay in the proles" (Palestinian version):

Support vs. opposition to a peace setttlement with Israel, almost three to one. A two-state or binational state solution vs. a single Palestinian state eliminating Israel, two to one. Voting preference, Hamas: 15 per cent. Main issue of concern is the Israeli occupation: six per cent. Security in Gaza worse since the Hamas takeover: 79 per cent.

And so on. And so on.

This has always been apparent to anyone who will listen to Palestinians.

Sadly, their western allies are frequently imbeciles trying to shoehorn reality into an, increasingly anti-Semitic, ideology of imperialism. Sadly too, Arab leadership has ignored those voices and indulged in its own rhetoric. The ultimate tragedy, is that the voice of rejection is also the only one heard by Israeli leadership. This cycle is reinforced by the violence of both sides - often brutal and arbitrary. Violent death has never been good at persuading others of one's reasonableness.

The voice of the majority of the Palestinians needs to be heard and listened to.
