From a public opinion survey of Palestinian adults in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, October 26, 2003
Q: In case the Palestinian emergency government and the Palestinian National Security Council issue an order to Fatah organization and to other organizations not directly belonging to the security organs of the Palestinian Authority to hand over their arms for confiscation or destruction purposes. How do you think how Fatah and the other organizations should react?What's the point of trying to discuss peace with a Palestinian "Authority" that doesn't have any authority to enforce its commitments?
1.Should they hand ľover their arms to be confiscated and destroyed 11.6%
2.Hide their arms 56.2%
3.Not to do anything 32.2%
