I am pro peace for Israel and the countries that surround it. I am pro solutions. I don't really have a side. I think all governments should think about what benefits their people instead of what benefit's themselves.
I certainly don't speak for 'all Americans', but For me, I do respect the Israeli determination to exist. Especially (very much so when Aminidijad makes his stupid speeches to the contrary) in light of the suffering the Jewish population has undergone during the Holocaust. However, there is a huge portion of not just this country but countries around the world that are tired of the constant fighting. I am sure You are too! But, this deep schism (Nothing new there!) between the Islamic world and the Jewish world is most likely to only be settled by sheer, brute force. This seems to be the way is has worked over the last couple thousand years. So, That I don't respect. But I do respect the tenacity and verve of the Israeli.
I served in the United States Army Infantry and we always looked at Israel as one of our best Allies, we always thought they would back us up in any war, and we always thought that if anyone tried to invade Israel the we would come to fight with them or that is what I always thought. Hell, I am not Jewish, but if I could I would still fight to protect Israel since I am a combat vet that fought in Iraq.
Depends; liberals tend to be pro-Palestinian and the further left the more so. But almost all conservatives are supportive of Israel. It's in the Republican platform; I think the polls show support for Israel. Overall, support for Israel has been on the upswing since 1967. In the 1970s, the average level of support for Israel was 44%, in the 1980s, it was 46%, and, in the 1990s, 47%, including the record highs during the Gulf War. Since 2000, support for Israel is averaging 52%. In the 26 polls conducted during President Obama's term, support for Israel has soared to an average of 55%, continuing an upward trend since the 1980s, while sympathy for the Palestinians has sunk to 11%, continuing a downward spiral that also began in the 1980s. On average, Israel is favored by nearly 4 to 1.
