NIX TO PALESTINIAN STATE
Americans, by a significant margin, believe the United States should support Israel in its conflict with Palestinians, a poll released today shows.
80% of those polled agree with the statement, “Enemies of America use the Palestinian-Israeli conflict as an excuse to create anti-American sentiment. Even if the dispute is settled, they would find another excuse to justify their hostility towards America.”
The poll was commissioned by The Israel Project Foundation.
In addition, 73 % maintain the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is about religion not land, the poll said.
Asked about Iran’s nuclear program, 64 % believe Iran will pursue a goal of destroying Israel, and 80 percent say it would make it easier for terrorist groups to gain access to nuclear weapons.
The survey was conducted March 19-20 with 811 registered voters.
The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
