Polling Palestinian Support for Bin Laden

It turns out that Hamas's Ismael Haniyeh isn't alone in his high regard for Osama bin Laden. A recently published Pew poll reveals that, in the words of a Ha'aretz reporter, "More than 34 percent of Palestinian Muslims said in 2011 they had confidence in the terrorist leader to do the right thing in world affairs." (The figure represents a decline from the 70-plus percent who supported the al Qaida leader in 2003, but is still significantly higher than levels of support in Muslim countries across the world.)

The statistic is being duly noted in various mainstream media blogs today.
