Arab public opinion largely skeptical of “peace conference”

October 9, 2007

TEHRAN - According to a recent poll by Al-Jazeera television network, almost all Arab citizens believe that George W. Bush’s Middle East peace conference, planed to be held in October, will not succeed.

According to the poll which was conducted from October 4 to 7, 95.8% of Arab respondents said they think the conference is doomed to fail.
The pollsters said it is very unlikely that Arabs reach an agreement with Israel as the Zionist leaders refuse to discuss the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, resettle the Palestinian refugees and resolve other major issues of concern
