Palestinians worried by chaos and internal security

A recent poll indicates that by far the number one issue for Palestinians is chaos and internal security:
Main reason behind your feeling of concern.
26.1%-Economic hardship of my household
34.5%-Absence of security for me and my family
16.5%-Internal power struggle
03.3%-Hamas in power
00.8%-Fateh in opposition
13.7%-Israeli occupation in general
05.1%-Family problems
The most important priority of the next government.
 56.8%-End the chaos and restore security
15.9%-Enforce the law
14.5%-Revive the economy
04.3%-Improve foreign relations with other countries
06.3%-Make peace with Israel

Making peace with Israel was not very high on the list, and the PNA government attempt at improving foreign relations is not a priority either.
After all, if you are not in the Islamic Jihad or a similar movement, Israel is not likely to bother you that much. If your son was just killed in a gang shootout, you are not interested in the fact that the Swiss and Norwegian governments are happy to hear the sentiments of Ismail Haniyeh regarding the Jewish problem.  
The poll also revealed that  Palestinians general want a peace agreement:
Support or opposition to a peace settlement with Israel.
Should Hamas take all measures possible to reach a peace agreement with
However, a peace agreement that includes a two state solution  will not change their views about the right of Israel to exist. The poll did not ask what those views are at present:
Would your opinion about Israel's right to exist change if there was a
two-state solution whereby Palestine is on the land occupied in 1967?
35.8%-Yes, it will change my mind
64.2%-No, it will not change my mind
