Volgens deze enquete is een grote meerderheid van de Palestijnen tegen een 1 op 1 landruil van maximaal 3%, zoals bijvoorbeeld voorgesteld in het Geneefse Akkoord. Daar staat tegenover dat bijna 40% ervoor is dat de Palestijnse vluchtelingen in de Palestijnse staat worden opgenomen tegenover bijna 30% die meent dat ze allemaal naar Israel moeten kunen terugkeren. Er werd niet gevraagd hoeveel procent voor een Palestijnse staat naast Israel binnen de pre-1967 bestandslijnen is, en hoeveel procent meent dat Israel het nationale thuisland is voor de Joden zoals Palestina dat voor de Palestijnen zal zijn.
