Most Israelis Favor Creation of a Palestinian State

The possibility of a Palestinian state is creating mass hysteria among Neocons, “American Exceptionalism” drones, Christian Dominionists and other wackjobs.  In the midst of all this drumbeating and saber-rattling, one seemingly invisible group seems to be forgotten:  the citizens of Israel.  Let’s see what they think about all this.

Would you believe:  Almost 70% of Israelis have said that  Israel should accept a Palestinian state.  Shouldn’t their opinion count for something?

This survey was taken by the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace.

The United States has promised to veto any U.N. Security Council requests for a Palestinian state.  Most Americans are probably also in favor of a Palestinian state.  So much for what the lowly public thinks.

Tha tamborine bangers here need Israel, for when Jeebus comes back to take them up to the sky, and lay the smackdown on the rest of us left behinders. They won't be giving in any time soon. Too bad the politicians everywhere don't listen to the r citizens or this world would look a whole lot different imo.

Jess..... the reason the right wing is so in love with Israel is because the Jews have to be in Jerusalem to be turned into crispy critters before Rapture can occur. In fact, most hard-right Jesusistanis are as anti-Semitic as the Nazis were. But don't expect the MSM to point this out anytime soon.

Rubes are rubes for a reason. I'm sure our leaders both here & abroad know what's best for us.

I quote the Onion:

Jess: Politicians listening to their citizens, what a concept. Nice theory anyway.

JR: Pretty ironic, that most American rightwing Israel-boosters are anti-Semitic. Then again, most rightwads don't grasp the concept of irony.

Randal: Yup, Leader knows best.

Erik: Good quote.

Not that it's germane but A-rabs are Semitic people too, NO?

Harry: Maybe. I always thought the term Semitic referred only to Jews, but I couldn't swear to it.
