Doh, it's late and forgot to post the link to the breakdown of the Gallup polls on Israel:
Okay... your article and link
Support for Israel in Gallup Polls has remained consistently around the 50% mark since 1967. The most recent poll, reported by Gallup in February 2013
found that sympathy for Israel tied the all-time high of 64%, matching the figure during the first Gulf War. By comparison only 12% expressed support
for the Palestinians.
So as of this prior Month support for Israel is at an all time high
Now look at this... where is?
75% of young Americans don't know where Israel is on a map
All I was saying earlier is, by ethnicity, culture, behavior, commonality.... The REAL REASONS most people anywhere chose a side in anything, personal
cultural biases... Americans Overwhelmingly support Israel and those reasons have nothing to do with who is right or wrong in a land dispute and
everything to do with having to "live" with the winner in one way or another and most Jews are basically westerners... there aren't a lot of them
they aren't seen as a cultural threat and most Islamics are very ..... Closed minded? To a typical westerners perspective? Restrictive? They
Convert.... (there are sects of Jews that are the same of course) but there are not very many of them
Regardless... One group is part of a culture that by numbers and philosophy is opposed to western civilization some would say Modern
The other, well State side 90% of Jews marry out of the religion... one feels like a threat
The vast majority of Americans don't care who is right or wrong....
NOW THE QUESTION I HAVE
WHAT IS THE REAL REASON SOME HATE ISRAEL?
TRUTH: The USA killed more people in Iraq the first week... than Israel has killed or displaced Palestinians in the entire time there.. Not quite as
quick but ditto...
There has not been one year in 40 years (just an example) Israelis killed more Palestinians than Black people kill white people in the USA, doesn't
even come close to the death tolls of overall gun homicide in the USA.
There are places like Darfur 500,000 women raped in a year...
I don't even want to go on... right or wrong this is one conflict, the poverty, the death, the ability for the displaced to migrate... none of it
even Comes CLOSE to so much else going on in the same time frame... This very much includes... Americas actions, The Russians Actions over the last
century... it's DWARFED
So why is Israel such an inflammatory topic?
If it was about the actions of the State the USA in Iraq alone... Depleted Uranium? I mean for the love of god we gave the gift of death that will
keep on giving for hundreds of years... Israel doesn't even come close...
So I have to ascertain...
The Jews have a point... there is nothing much more than Racist Jew Hate at work.... which to a degree justifies them... because in the end... this is
just ONE of many places where LOTS of people die over simply not being able to live together... in the USA the number is 10x yearly people shooting
each other, in our wars will kill 100 or 1000 x as many,
So when I hear AMERICANS barking about Israel... I know the Truth, your just as racist as the other side is... there is no actual logic, your just
picking sides for the same reasons the 75% of Americans that don't even know where Israel is do.... CULTURAL BIAS
