Settlements and Americans
Results of a poll of 1000 Americans regarding settlements shows that if articulated properly, settlements in Judea and Samaria could be supported (or at least not opposed) by most Americans.
The poll questions are admittedly phrased in a manner that would inevitably have a positive result for settlements. However, the notions that both Jews and Arabs should be allowed to live in Judea and Samaria, and that it is immoral to expel hundreds of thousands of Jews from their homes, are ones that people of good will would agree with. Unfortunately, Israelis and their supporters react defensively when responding to questions about settlements, and fail to emphasize these crucial points.
