Televised Turkish opinion poll: 68 percent of the Turkish people support Hamas

An opinion poll aired Monday on a Turkish TV show attended by Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, revealed that 68 percent of the Turkish people support the Hamas Movement opposed to 32 percent for the Israeli occupation.


During the show, Dr. Abu Zuhri briefed the Turkish viewers on the reality of the Israeli war on Gaza and the crimes committed against children, women and civilians. He also talked about the steadfastness and fortitude demonstrated by the Gaza people during the war.


Turkish media sources told the PIC reporter that there is a growing awareness among the Turkish people of the dimensions of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip and an understanding of the fact that Hamas is a resistance faction defending the Palestinian people and its democratically-elected government is the legitimate representative of the Palestinians.


The sources pointed out that the Turkish support for Hamas increasingly grows despite the wide presence of the Zionist lobby which influences a large number of media outlets in Turkey.
