Aug. 1, 2008 3:34 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 1, 2008 3:34 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - The majority of respondents of a Ma'anArabic poll this week believe that if Gaza crossings do not open soon the truce should be cancelled.

The poll asked whether the Israeli failure to open the crossings constituted a failure of the terms of the truce.

Out of 11439 respondents, 7559 (66.08%) answered that yes, if the Gaza borders are not opened the truce should be declared void

A minority, 2918 (25.51%) said that Palestinians should continue with the truce in order to make it work, even if Israel does not open crossings immediately.

A small percentage, 8.41%, of respondents indicated that they were unsure how to react to the current situation of the truce that began on 19 June.
