As many as 94 percent of Palestinians reject the Trump administration’s peace plan, according to a poll by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research. This is the first time the Palestinians have been asked what they think of the peace plan since it was announced, writes Israel Hayom.

“I do not think we have ever seen such a strong consensus among the Palestinians before,” said Khalil Shikaki, who is behind the investigation.

The poll also shows that support for the two-state solution is at a record low among Palestinians. Only 39% are in favor of a two-state solution, while 59% are against. On the other hand, support for a one-state solution, which has long been rejected by both Israeli and Palestinian leaders, has risen sharply from 28% in December to 37% today.

64% of Palestinians answered that they would prefer to return to armed struggle in response to the peace plan. Shikaki says the last time support for armed struggle was just as high was during the Second Intifada from 2000 to 2005.

-On all issues where violence is mentioned, we see increasing support, a significant increase, he says. The study has a margin of error of 3 percent.
