Arab world wants Hamas to rule 'Palestinians'

The JeruzalemPost reports that
A survey of the Arab world organized by the Al-Arabia network website after the death of Yasser Arafat, showed 73.72% want a Hamas representative to replace Arafat, ITIM reported. In contrast only 0.7% expect that one of the PLO leaders will take over.
Hamas of course is dedicated to the total destruction of Israel. Officially.

Just a reminder here: UN SC resolution 242, on which ALL negotiations and solutions must be based, demands (among other things) this:
Termination of all claims or states of belligerency and respect for and acknowledgement of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of every State in the area and their right to live in peace within secure and recognized boundaries free from threats or acts of force.
Clearly, most Arabs want Israel gone. I know, I know, this is not what you might call a surprise. It just means that Israel is under NO obligation WHATSOEVER to make peace overtures, let alone compromise on land or security issues. Three quarters of all Arabs still consider themselves at war with Israel. Which is really all that matters.
