A joint Israeli-Palestinian poll has found that a third of Palestinians surveyed said that they supported the attack in which five members of an Israeli family were stabbed to death last month.
Udi and Ruth Fogel and three of their children - Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and three-month old baby Hadas - were murdered in the Israeli town of Itamar on March 11.

The poll was conducted jointly by the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah.
The poll surveyed 1,270 Palestinians from both the West Bank and Gaza and 601 Israelis on their attitudes to recent uprisings in the Arab world, the renewal of Israeli-Palestinian violence and conflict management, peace initiatives and threat perceptions.
