If you’ve been to this blog before, you’re likely well aware of our opposition to Sharon’s plan to forcefully expel Israeli settlers from Gaza. It appears we’re not alone. The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) was only too happy to publicize the results of their poll of American sentiment on the Gaza situation. Their poll found that 63% of Americans oppose the pullout. Also noteworthy in this poll:
By 50% to 28%, Americans believe that “this Gaza plan sends a message that Arab terrorism is being rewarded.”
Other findings showed that 63% of Americans believe “Jerusalem should remain under Israeli sovereignty â€“ not Palestinian sovereignty,” in comparison to only 5% who did not agree.
Also, 80% said they opposed “the continuation of $350 million in US aid to Palestinian Arabs.”
By 61% to 28%, Americans believe that “if Hamas members are elected or appointed to official positions in the Palestinian Arab government, US officials should not meet or negotiate with them.”
