Posted on 04/22/2010 12:08:24 PM PDT by OldDeckHand
Washington (CNN) - Only a third of Americans approve of the way President Obama's handling the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, according to a new national poll.
A Quinnipiac University survey released Thursday morning indicates that 35 percent of the public gives the president a thumbs up on how he's dealing with the situation between Israel and the Palestinians, with 44 percent saying they disapprove, and just over one in five unsure.
This stands in contrast with how Americans feel about Obama's overall handling of foreign policy, with 48 percent approving and 42 percent saying they disapprove.
According to the poll, two-thirds of Jewish voters disapprove of how the president's handling Israeli-Palestinian relations, with 28 percent saying they approve. Jewish voters were big backers of Obama in the 2008 presidential election, with exit polls indicating that nearly eight of ten backed the Democratic candidate.

Jews for Sarah..
That is very troubling. He's made our friends unhappy with us and he's kissing the muzzlems, who are always going to hate us. An they approve of THAT?
Obama could give a crap about the country’s opinion of his policy toward Israel. He has his own agenda and it has nothing to do with the safety of America.
Sorry I could not help myself..
Agreed, he has an agenda, an to H with the American People.
What Americans fail to understand is - HE DOESN’T CARE WHAT THEY THINK!!!!
This is the FIRST President in History who doesn’t give a damn what the American Public thinks about anything - HE knows best!
That’s called TYRANNY - not Democracy.
He TOLD them he thought they were too warm in the winter, too cool in the summer and too well fed before he ran for office. He just told them they were too well medicated.
And NOW he’s getting ready to tell them they need to “share” - THEIR country with any damn invader who sneaks across our borders.
WHEN WILL THEY WAKE UP!!
Obama is NOT a Ronald Reagan or even a Bill Clinton - he’s a Castro, a Batista, a Chavez.
Heck no... it is cnn... they just pull figures from their own arse.
When this sentiment shows up in the voting booth, you'll know it' the end times, and no I can't quote scriptural support.
an to H with the American People.
He has not waivered from the beginning. It has always been about his agenda and not the American people. He wants to totally change America for one thing. As for Israel, well, they have to take care of themselves for the time being until we can get the muslim out of office. And, he is, inside, a muslim by his own admission. No one seems to listen to the REAL Obama at least not in the MSM and 1/2 of America - and they call us stupid. The only ones happy at this point are the muslims (or as happy as any muslim can be) and, progressives and the dummies.
I know. It just makes me extremely unhappy that americans are being totally ignored.
The TPM is under attack. They now have accepted the fact this is not about rallies, but a deep concern within Society that the Constitution which most have taken for granted as a safety net, may be severly undermined. 7 months seems like a long time. The mad dash by this admin to institute as many Taxes, Regs, and eraseing of our Rights is breathtaking.
7 months seems like a long time.
It seems like forever sometimes but it does pass and obama knows it and is trying to change as much as he can before November. But, God willing, we will prevail in November and take our country back from these disgusting, lying weasels. 0 is not alone in his pursuit of change - there’s pelosi, reid, biden and the list goes on. We have got to kick butt and take names and this time REMEMBER HISTORY, REMEMBER NAMES for more than 6 months - the time America almost changed forever!
Oh yes. Following the trail is very enlightening.
Beck addressed some of this today.

Hey, CNN, all of Jerusalem is under Israeli sovereignty. It's Israel's capital, as it was in biblical times, and that's a fait accompli. But you, CNN, would prefer to live in fantasy land and state that it is "not recognized by the international community."
"Seized" from Jordan? Remember, CNN, that Jordan was a belligerent against Israel in 1967, a salient fact that you choose to omit.
Frankly, we here don't give a rat's ass about what CNN or "the international community" may think about this. All of Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and will be so in perpetuity!
I keep waiting until CNN runs the “US seized Houston Texas from Mexico” story, demanding that the US give back it’s ill-gotten gains won during the Texas Revolution. You know it’s coming, eventually.
Well, I'd presume that they are hiding the fact that there is a significant difference here: Republicans are much more likely to oppose O's anti-Israel slant than 'Rats are. As revealed consistently in polls over the last decade or two, support of Israel in the GOP is significantly stronger than among the jackasses.
