Opposition to Terror?

An April 5 Los Angeles Times editorial claims that most Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza oppose terror (“Mideast’s New Road Map”). In fact, a recent poll by the Beit Sahour-based Palestinian Center for Public Opinion indicates that 64.3 percent of Palestinians support suicide attacks against Israelis inside Israel (March 6, 2002).

How, then, does the Los Angeles Times reckon that the majority of Palestinians “oppose terror?”
