Haaretz's Skewed Slant On Israel's Popularity
A new Gallup poll shows that 67 percent of Americans view Israel favorably. In comparison, 20 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the Palestinian Authority.
90 percent of Americans like Canada, so leave it to Haaretz to come up with this negative slant: "With all due respect to Washington's special relationship and shared values with Israel, Americans much prefer their neighbor to the north."
In fact, the poll numbers are good news for Israel, and confirm that a large majority of Americans remain supportive.
However, the poll does confirm the liberal-conservative divide on Israel. Among Republicans, 80 percent support Israel and 12 percent support the Palestinians. The gap drops to 53 percent-25 percent among Democrats.
