Shocking. All the Israel haters must not be awake yet if "Justified" is at 59%. Absolutely Israel is justified.

There was no button for “Justified, but futile”.

I wonder how many of those who think that it is NOT justified would feel if their homes were being shelled?

What a comfort it is that Obama is "closely monitoring" Rahm, Blagojevich and the Illinois Senate seat the Middle East conflict while eating shaved ice.

A Qassam rocket should land on or near them. Bet they’d change their tune before too long.

“Where do you stand on Israel’s response to rocket attacks on its territory?”

It’s a small, but good start.

I can’t figure out for the life of me why Israel isn’t carpet bombing the entire area. There shouldn’t be a structure left standing.

This restrained response only encourages further attacks.

Justified. Israel should wipe out all of the Palestinian "Authority", take back all of the territories and establish Israeli citizenship, or dual citizenship, for the remaining Pali population.

The Palis at that point should obey Israeli law, or get out.

Interesting. I just voted twice and the numbers didn't change. So, I logged in on another email account and voted again and the numbers didn't change. I then logged in to yet another account and voted again, but this time I voted “unjustified”...and the vote counted.

WTF??? Someone else try it and see if it's just an aberration.

My guess is 40 of the 41% who answered condemnable probably don’t even know it was a response.

Not even Madison, Wisconsin, nor Ithaca, NY, bleeding though their hearts may be, would tolerate the radical factions among the Potowatomies or the Iroquois, firing deadly rockets and mortars, daily and indiscriminately, into the campuses of the U. of Wisc., or Cornell, respectively.

Oh, sure, they would be torn and conflicted over issuing scolding statements against a politically-correct-protected group; but wrong is wrong, especially when it happens to YOU! You can bet that the Nat’l Guard would be called in, and that vengeful results would be expected.

Apt analogy?

My thoughts exactly. Only when Israel rolls through the Gaza strip and crushes the terrorists bones in the treads of their tanks without giving a damn' about world opinion will things change.

It’s Obama’s problem now!! In November the vast majority of American Jews supported Mr. Obama with their votes and $upport. Let’s now see if that support was justified. One will have his doubts.

Well, it IS a CNN poll, so I’m surprised the results aren’t 90% condemnable and 10% justified.

Probably in a semi-sophisticated attempt to semi-prevent poll slamming, they may be temp logging IPs and throttling multiple “yes” or “no” votes from the same IP.

Nope, I don’t think so, as I forced a refresh on the browser. In fact, on one of them, I actually shut the browser down and reloaded it just to make sure.

...they may be temp logging IPs...

That would explain it, but it seems unlikely to me that they'd make that kind of effort. Still, I can't see any other explanation except they want to "control" the results.

May they vaporize every last one of the scum in Gaza and rid the planet of the human waste just like Patton stomped the Nazis. Israel will be left alone once the Muslim Messiah takes office. The USA will be neutered on January 20th thanks to the Messiah, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the surrender crowd in DC. Our forefathers are rolling in their graves; count on it.
