An overwhelming number of Americans are supporting Israel and blame Hamas for the war in Gaza, according to an Israel Project survey. Nearly three-quarters of the respondents believe that the Arab-Israeli struggle is based on ideology and religion and not on claims for land.
"This poll demonstrates that Americans ... understand the security dilemma and threats to its survival with which it must deal and - far better it seems than our political leaders [and] understand that the Arab war on Israel is largely an aggressive war of religious ideology, not a mere territorial dispute," said Morton A. Klein, Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) National President.
It seems that people of the United States are more honest and astute about the Arab-Israel conflict than their government. They can see, especially after 9/11, that Fatah, Hamas and Al-Qaida are the part of the same Islamic ideology: Global domination by Islam! Major sponsors of this religious agenda are Saudi Arabia and Iran, and it is being supported and implemented in various forms by most Muslim countries! The Muslim world might have their differences, but they do hate passionately all Crusaders and unfaithful ones!
One would think, considering the time spent and resources that have been devoted to the conflict, that the US government would have more understanding of the true political situation. It has! But in policies where Jews are involved, "all bets are off". The logic of fact is ignored and political games are quite predictably skewed against Jews. The United States, regardless of what anti-Semitic propaganda tries to convince people, is an integral part of the modern anti-Israel bias campaign! There is no other country in the world that has been visited so often by the US high-ranking dignitaries and pressured so intensely by the US officials like Israel. There is no other national leader who has been called onto 'the red carpet' in Washington as often as the Israeli Prime Minister.
After so many years of conducting the 'peace experiment' on Jews in Israel it would be prudent to admit that this approach has failed and start searching for alternative solution. Unfortunately, in order to secure the flow of strategic oil supplies and please Saudi Arabian sponsors, one US administration after another has continuously and relentlessly promoted the delusional two-state solution, generously offering the enemies of Israel, and of the United States, more of the Jewish land, perfectly knowing that it will never bring peace to Israel and the region! Why? Because continuous instability in the region allows American corporations to sell arms to both sides of the conflict in exchange for oil and it gives the US an excuse to keep an American military presence in the region for "security reasons" - or, perhaps more accurately, due to deeply the embedded animalistic anti-Semitic character of the political elite. Without outside interference and pressure, Israel would have been able to end the conflict a long time ago!
