I Wanna Be Like You

According to a recent poll, PLO Arabs would like a future PLO Arab state to be..well, like Israel.

Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza strip view Israeli democracy as the preferred model for a regime that they would like to see applied in a future Palestinian state, according to a survey released at a conference in Jerusalem last week.

The Palestinians rank Israeli democracy even before Western democracies such as the US, France, Germany, and others, according to surveys conducted by the Ramallah-based Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research.

The findings of the surveys were presented by the director of the center, Khalil Shikaki, during an international workshop for auditors of democracies held at the Israel Democracy Institute in Jerusalem.

Shikaki said the surveys that his center has conducted since its foundation in 1996 consistently show that a majority of Palestinians views the structure of the democratic regime in Israel as a model that they would like to institute in a future Palestinian state.

What? You mean the PLO Arabs do not wanted a state based on the common “corrupt Arab dictator” model?

Prediction: Masked men will pay Khalil Shikaki a little visit, after which he may have to recant these findings.
