2/3s of Americans Are on Israel's Side
Mr. President, you are out of touch with the American people. Why should we support a group of people who celebrated in the streets over the horrific slaughter of 3,000 innocent Americans on 9/11?
Israel, on the other hand, has been a faithful ally to us, and we share a common enemy--radical Islam. No wonder support for Israel far outpaces support for the America-hating Palestinians.
Read from Israel Matzav:
"A Gallup poll reports that 67% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Israel, the highest level seen since the First Gulf War in 1991. By comparison, 20% have a favorable opinion of the 'Palestinians.'
'Sixty three percent favored Israel in the Middle East conflict, while only 15 percent favored the Palestinian Authority.
Commenting on the poll, Netanyahu said that the support it showed for Israeli “reflects the goals shared by the American and Israeli peoples: the achievement of peace and security and a world consisting of free, liberal democracies. Israel desires peace, and at the same time struggles against terror and extremism, just like the US, and this is the basis for the strong ties between the two countries and two peoples.”
While most Americans support Israel, few believe that a resolution of the Middle East conflict is on the horizon. Sixty seven percent of those polled said that peace was not imminent, while 30 percent said they were hopeful it would come “at some point.”
The poll was conducted in February by the Gallup organization in the United States, part of the organization's annual World Affairs survey, which asks Americans' opinion on 20 countries or entities.'
So much for trying to undermine Prime Minister Netanyahu with the claim that he's messing up our relations with the US.
