Poll: Overwhelming US Majority Says Israel Should Receive No Aid Boost due to US / Iran “Deal”


67.8% of respondents to a Google Consumer Survey said Israel should receive no compensation for the US finalizing a deal with Iran over its civilian nuclear program, which was begun at the behest of the US when Washington’s puppet, the Shah, one of the world’s worst human rights violators, ruled over Iran.

Obama is currently offering Israel increased aid to compensate for the agreement.  Israel is the biggest recipient of US aid at over $3 billion per year, and Obama has increased aid to Israel after each of Israel’s major massacres in the Gaza refugee camp since Obama assumed power.

The major study of the issue of citizen impact on US government policy, conducted in 2014 by research teams out of Princeton and Northwestern universities, looked at nearly 2,000 policies and found that average-income US citizens have “near zero, statistically non-significant” impact on them, while the most affluent citizens essentially dictate policy.  This dynamic has been illustrated by previous research, such as by Larry Bartels of Vanderbilt.

Another issue to watch for: the “world’s most influential” think tank, the Washington-based Brookings Institute, has suggested (among other options), as a way for the US to gain dominance over Iran, making it appear that Iran has rejected a “great” deal, then using Israel to attack Iran.  (Note the above poll asks if Israel should be given long-range bombers and “bunker-buster” explosives.)

The US and Israel have both continued to make threats of force, criminal acts under the UN charter adopted by both countries, against Iran since the agreement, and Obama’s anti-democratic offering of increased aid to Israel could possibly signal that the “leave it to Bibi” strategy is still being entertained, along with any number of other goals.

    Wow! That’s great news if this poll is reliable (corporate media polls MUST be rejected as coming from serial liars).

    Great documentation, Robert; thank you. Perhaps, maybe, just maybe, we’re getting close to winning this game!

    • Robert Barsocchini

      Good point.

  • jo6pac

    Yes, thanks just maybe the sheeple are starting to wake up to the fact that there no money for VA, Schools, Real Health Care and not corp. welfare health care, roads and bridges. Plenty of money for the war machine and the elite. I can dream can’t I?

    Maybe I’m missing something, but doesn’t voting “none of the above” mean only that the options presented are not favorable to the voter, but that options not presented in this survey might be what a voter would choose?

      The options listed are the only credible major initiatives reported in the news media. None of the above, the way the question was presented to respondents, equals “nothing.”

  • Just know real history folks. November 18, 2012 Israel and the U.S. CREATED Hamas, Hezbollah and Al Qaeda

    Creating the Enemies We Now Fight Against We’ve extensively documented that the U.S. and Israel created Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups in an attempt to fight other enemies.
