Americans Want Balanced Treatment of Israel and Palestine

American politicians are pro-Israel because that’s what the public wants. Right?

Wrong.

A July 1, 2008 poll found that Americans do not favor taking either Israel or Palestine’s side:

A new WorldPublicOpinion.org poll of 18 countries finds that in 14 of them people mostly say their government should not take sides in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Just three countries favor taking the Palestinian side (Egypt, Iran, and Turkey) and one is divided (India). No country favors taking Israel’s side, including the United States, where 71 percent favor taking neither side.

But as Glenn Greenwald points out:

One can travel from the farthest right fringe of the GOP to the heart of the Democratic Party leadership and hear exactly the same thing: Israel is always right. Israel must not be criticized. Israel never bears any blame. Any action taken by Israel is justified. No matter the situation, that just gets repeated over and over like some hypnotic bipartisan mantra. Meanwhile, American citizens overwhelmingly … want their Government to be “even-handed” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Yet that view is simply ignored, disregarded, not even viable for any American mainstream political leader to express.

See also this.

As with the Iraq war, the bailout, torture, and everything else, the powers-that-be in the U.S. government ignore what Americans want and do whatever they like.

    The poll result is interesting yet shows how the US public opinion has been manipulated by the US media. A majority of americans supports an intervention of the UN if Israel is attacked after signing a peace agreement which I will support too ,yet the US public opinion doesn’t support the other way around if arab countries are attacked by Israel which by the way has plenty to defend itself? I think more work needs to be done to change the bias or the brainwashing of the US public opinion! However, it is getting there slowly.

    Gosh… why don’t Americans know that Gaza is a concentration camp?Witness the censorship and revolt at Huffpost… in order to opine on all things Jewish … you must not use the word… J is for Jew… P is for Pali… I is for Israel…that’s the only way your post shows up… if you are critical of Israel.The mods don’t even allow posters to complain in public about the censorship… if you do your account is closed.So ask me again… Why don’t Americans know the truth of Palestine?Because this is Sobibor West.. with a Jew in every watchtower.This post probably won’t be posted… or remain once the Jews have their way..The Germans knew…. so did the Russians… and Islam is trying to tell us before it’s too late.

    April 10, 2008 "All of the Palestinians must be killed; men, women, infants, and even their beasts." This was the religious opinion issued one week ago by Rabbi Yisrael Rosen, director of the Tsomet Institute, a long-established religious institute attended by students and soldiers in the Israeli settlements of the West Bank. In an article published by numerous religious Israeli newspapers two weeks ago and run by the liberal Haaretz on 26 March, Rosen asserted that there is evidence in the Torah to justify this stand. Rosen, an authority able to issue religious opinions for Jews, wrote that Palestinians are like the nation of Amalekites that attacked the Israelite tribes on their way to Jerusalem after they had fled from Egypt under the leadership of Moses. He wrote that the Lord sent down in the Torah a ruling that allowed the Jews to kill the Amalekites, and that this ruling is known in Jewish jurisprudence.For over Sixty years the World has been "guilt tripped" and milked of "reparations" by the SAME people who invented the very crimes of which they complain. Now they piously proclaim their desire for "peace, peace", as they parade these rules around their places of worship, and KISS the scrolls on which these odious "rules" are codified. It was the Israelites that introduced to the world, and codified in their religion, Bigotry, Genocide, everything CRIMINAL that they now condemn in the NazisThe Nazis called themselves "superior" people. The CHOSEN People of GOD do not like the competition.The Nazis stole property from their victims. Aside from stealing ALL of Palestine, as well documented in the Torah(the 1st 5 books of the Bible) "for a place to live", which they are repeating today, and the Nazis copied and called "growth room" how about ……..STEAL FROM YOUR NEIGHBORS:Exodus c.3 v.22Exodus c.11 v.2Exodus c.12 v.35-36 (obviously "Thou SHALT NOT STEAL" does not apply to NON-Jews.)The Nazis killed their own crippled and crazy. KILL THE SICK and CRIPPLEDNumbers c.5 v.2-4 "putting them out of camp" means go die in the desertThe Nazis killed homosexuals and sexual "deviants" …………..KILL HOMOSEXUALS AND SEXUAL DIVIANTSLeviticus c.20 v.13 well, really the whole chapterThe Nazis killed those who dissented from the "party line" ……………..KILL ALL DISSIDENTS:Exodus c.32 v.27Numbers c.11 v.1-2Numbers c.16 allNumbers c.21 v.5-6Numbers v.26 v.10The Nazis held themselves apart from other people……………….NO "diversity", NO "integration":Numbers v25 v.4-8Deuteronomy c.14 v.2The jews complain that Nazis demonized those they did not like, calling them perverts, parasites, unclean …..The Jews today call YOU "Gentile, GOYIM, Shiska" pejorative names equal to "the 'N'" word.Demonizing, DEHUMANIZATION, is commonly used in order to justify killing people.The entire Torah/Books of Moses is a dehumanization of all NON-israelites.Accusing others of deviant sexuality, unclean practices, worshiping the "wrong" god, eating the "wrong" food.HATE codified in the Bible.FINALLY, the BIG evil ………..The Nazis engaged in GENOCIDE, deliberately killing men, women and children… because of their difference:After DEhumanizing the Native People of Palestine, the Israelites introduced GENOCIDE to the World:Numbers c.21 v.03 CanaanitesNumbers c.21 v.24 AmoritesNumbers c.21 v.33 BashanNumbers c.31 all MidianitesNumbers c.32 v. more AmoritesDeuteronomy c.2 v.34 People of HeshbonDeuteronomy c.3 v.6 really the whole chapter. threescore cities Joshua c.12 A list of victims of Israeli GENOCIDE Where are THEIR "holocaust" Memorials!Genocide codified in their religion:Numbers c.33 v.31-34Deuteronomy c.7 v.2Deuteronomy c.12 v.28-30Deuteronomy c.20 v.11-16Terrorism codified in their religion:Deuteronomy c.2 v.2Deuteronomy c.7 v.16BURNING FLESH is "A sweet savor unto the Lord" – JUST A FEW of MANY MANY examplesExodus c.29 v.18, 25, 41&42Leviticus c.1 v.17Leviticus c.2 v.2&&9&12Leviticus c.3 v.5Now some will say "Oh, the Bible is not FACT, it is allegory or whatever."To which I answer, FINE, then so is the portion where God supposedly "gave" Israel the land of Palestine. You cannot deny one verse, then use the next verse as justification to murder and steal land from People.For millenia the Jews have WAILED about their abject slavery under "Torturous, Inhumane"conditions in Egypt. As a matter of fact, their wailing is the same as their wailing about the "Torturous, Inhumane" treatment by the Nazis. How is it that "impoverished, abject slaves" have lambs to slaughter, flocks and herds?Exodus c.12 v.21Exodus c.12 v.32&38Exodus c.35 v.22-23How is it that "abject impoverished slaves" have neighbors with GOLD and SILVER and JEWELS to LOAN to these "slaves"Exodus c.3 v.22Exodus c.11 v.2 Exodus c.12 v.35-36Israel declaring it wants "peace", is the same as a RAPIST declaring his victim should quit resisting.It is time that 3,500 years of "biblically mandated" inbreeding within Judaism be recognized as causing genetic insanity. It is the "tenets" of Judaism that the Jewish mother determines that a person is Jewish, and the father determines the "tribe" of Judaism. Well 3,500 years of inbreeding, as any geneticist could have warned, has led to mass insanity.

    Why is opinion so different between US citizens and elected US officials of both parties? Because the elected officials are on AIPAC’s (Israel’s political action committee) payroll. Easy. Follow the money.

    the media is owned by the lobbyist group which is heavily inclined towards the zionist. If u look at the history of modern spin you will trace the root to Sigmund Freud’s nephew ( I couldnt remember his name at this wee hour) which i think a zionist.I hope the jews particularly those who are not zionist help to clear the air before anti semitism get on its way.
