Palestinian Poll
Reveals PLO Support

Washington (JTA) — More
than 90 percent of the Palesti-
nians on the West Bank and
Gaza Strip consider the Pale-
stinian Liberation Organiza-
tion to be their sole legitimate
representative, according to a
poll released here last Mon-
day.
A large majority also reject
the leadership of King Hus-
sein of Jordan and believed an
"armed struggle" is their ma-
jor hope to achieve a Palesti-
nian state.
The poll was conducted be-
tween July 28 and August 8
by Dr. Mohammed Shadid, a
political scientist at Najah
University in Nablus in
Samaria and Dr. Richard
Seltzer, of Howard Universi-
ty, here.
It was sponsored by Al
Fajr, the Jerusalem-based
Arab newspaper considered a
supporter of the PLO and
funded also by the Australian
Broadcasting Corp. and
Newsday, the Long Island,
N.Y., newspaper.
But at a press conference
Monday the poll, Newsday
was not mentioned in the
press release. Seltzer claimed
that Newsday wanted the
names and addresses of the
1,024 persons polled.
However, this was denied
by Peter Eisner, foreign editor
of Newsday, who said News-
day considers the poll to be
accurate and plans to use it
someday in a series on the
West Bank and Gaza.
The poll itself found that
93.5 percent believe the PLO
"is the sole and legitimate
representative of the Pales-
tinian people." Of the others,
14.6 percent said Jordan
represents the Palestinians
while 4.2 percent chose
Egypt, 2.1 percent Syria, 2.1
pecent "another Arab coun-
try" and 77.1 had no choice.
Asked which leader they
prefer, 71.1 percent said it
was PLO leader Yasir Arafat,
3.4 percent picked Hussein,
and 2.3 percent Libya's
Muammar Qaddafi. Syria's
Hafez Assad and Iran's
Ayatollah Kohmeini each
were selected by 1.7 percent.
The poll found that 80.6
percent considered that
United Nations Security
Council Resolution 242
should not be the basis for
solving the Palestinian prob-
lem. Of these people, 56.8 per-
cent said the reason was that
it does not recognize the right
of Palestinians to self deter-
mination, the official PLO
position, and 33.4 percent
said it was inadequate to
solve the problem.
Asked for their preferred
solution, 77.9 percent wanted
"the establishment of a demo-
cratic Palestinian state in all
of Palestine" and 16.9 percent
wanted a Palestinian state in
the West Bank and Gaza.

As an interim solution 49.7
percent would accept a Pale-
stinian state in the West
Bank and Gaza while 43.2
percent wanted to continute
"the struggle" for all of
Palestine. Only 6.3 percent
opted for a return of Jordan-
ian rule.
The poll found that 78.4
percent consider acts of force
justifed while 11.5 percent
did not. In addition, 83 per-
cent said the primary cause
of violence was the struggle
for self-determination rather
than conditions under Israel,
selected by 8.4 percent.
On specific acts of violence,
87.6 percent said the hijack-
ing of the Israeli bus on the
Tel Aviv-Haifa highway was
justified; 81.2 percent justi-
fied the attack against the
U.S. Marine compound in
Lebanon in 1983; 60.5 percent
approved of placing a bomb
on an El Al plane and 20.7
percent approved placing a
bomb on any civilian plane
and 36.9 percent said the at-
tacks on the Rome and Vien-
na airports last December
were justified.
Both Shadid and Seltzer
maintained that the poll
demonstrated that Pales-
tinians would be willing to ac-
cept a compromise if it was
negotiated by Arafat They
argued for Arafat's inclusion
in the negotiations, some-
thing both the U.S. and Israel
has rejected.

Hammer Elected
Minister Of
Religious Affairs

Jerusalem (JTA) — The Na-
tional Religious Party (NRP)
last week elected Knesset
Member Zevulun Hammer as
the successor to Dr. Yosef
Burg as Minister of Religious
Affairs.
Hammer won 573 to 369
over Moshe Salomon, the
Director General of the
Ministry. It was not yet clear
when Hammer would assume
office, as Burg wanted to
postpone his resignation un-
til the rotation of the prime
ministership takes place the
middle of next month.
The NRP would like to in-
stall Hammer in the Cabinet
as early as next week,
The elections market not
only the end of Burg's long
political career (he has been a
minister since the beginning
of the state), but also a
decline in the powers of his
once dominant Lamifne fac-
tion. Not only did the fac-
tion's candidate lose to Ham-
mer, but Rafael Ben-Natan,
Burg's closest associate and
formerly a strong figure in
the , NRP, was defeated in his
bid to be elected the party's
political secretary.
