Polls: Palestinians have little American support

More than four times as many Americans, 59%, sympathize with the Israelis compared with those who sympathize with the Palestinians, 13%, in the conflict in the Middle East, according to a new CNN/ORC poll. In the survey, 57% also said that Israeli military action in the Gaza strip was justified, compared to 24% who said it was unjustified. Three out of four U.S. Republicans thought the Israeli action was justified, compared to 41% of Democrats and 59% of Independents.

The last two remaining Bronze Age cultures, parties to the USS Liberty pact, are being dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. The rite of passage is scheduled for November 29 when Palestine is upgraded to the status of UN observer state.

Most Americans side with the Europeans who "displaced" the Native Americans. Maybe that's why they side with the Israelis rather than the Palestinians.
