Poll: Obama gets thumbs down on Israel
CNN.com ^ | 04/22/2010 | Staff

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.

I'm shocked that this is a CNN poll. Of course, they did try to protect their messiah with this line...

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

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.

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.

When this sentiment shows up in the voting booth, you'll know it' the end times, and no I can't quote scriptural support.

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.

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!

Israel seized East Jerusalem from Jordan during the Six Day War in 1967, and considers it part of its sovereign capital - a claim not recognized by the international community.

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.

Why no breakdown of the respondents in this poll by party?

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.

The 0bama program is to make Americans like Jews less and to like Muslims more. To be more sympathetic with the fast Jihad against Israel and the slow Jihad against Europe.

0bama wants to make Americans “Islam receptive”. 0bama grew up as a Muslim and has those memories, so not a big surprise. Just like dogs returning to their s**t to sniff it and even eat it sometimes.

I was musing out loud today about the complete about face of Noam Chomsky...and some of the other protestations of leftist Jews that seem to have had some sort of epiphany about democrats in general.
As I have often stated, no matter how much you act like that which G-d hates, if you are a Jew, in the end, it will not matter that you sold your birthright for “acceptance.” You will still be a Jew and they will still not love you.
Is it possible that Jewish leftists have actually realized this? If so, then I have to go back to Biblical Prophecy, because G-d is choosing up sides and you’d best be on the right side of G-d when the world comes against Jerusalem.

Ralph Bunche brokered a deal in 1949 for Jerusalem to be an international city. The arabs and the Israelis signed the deal but the arabb reneged on it before the ink was dry. Jerusalem, is eternally, the capitol of iosrael!

More to the point, Jordan expelled the Jews from the Jordanian-occupied eastern Jerusalem after the 1948 War of Independence, and expelled all Jews from Jordanian-held territory. Jordan is an artificial construct of the British, handed to the Hashemites when Saud expelled them from Mecca. Thanks justiceseeker93.

Jordan occupied Jerusalem for 19 years.

And made a heck of a mess of the Jewish holy sites in the process.

Noam Chomsky !!!!!

Are you serious? He has done a turn-about on the Left?

“Noam Chomsky !!!!!”
“Are you serious? He has done a turn-about on the Left?”

That was the take by certain journalists, but after having read Chomsky’s remarks myself, I see now that they were taken completely, and I mean COMPLETELY, out of context. He was actually comparing the rise of the TeaParty movement to the rise of Hitler, not the opposite as some of these journalists reported. The article I first read was here on FR, but I can’t locate it now. When I got your ping, I looked up Chomsky to get the exact text and about had an attack. Whoever it was that wrote it up as a defense of Palin and the Tea Party was nutz!

This is what they based their mistaken delight that Chomsky criticized obama and told people to pay more attention to the tea parties:
http://www.veteranstoday.com/2010/04/17/chomsky-on-tea-party-dark-clouds-of-fascism-gathering/

Appearing in Madison,Wisconsin last week, Chomsky, who frequently observes of America that there is a permanent mass base for fascism, warned about the appeal of the Tea Party, though he shares many of their negative sentiments on the U.S. government.

“I’m just old enough to have heard a number of Hitler’s speeches on the radio,” he said, “and I have a memory of the texture and the tone of the cheering mobs, and I have the dread sense of the dark clouds of fascism gathering” here at home.
******************************
But THIS is what he meant::
http://www.tehrantimes.com/index_View.asp?code=218045

“It is very similar to late Weimar Germany,” Chomsky told me when I called him at his office in Cambridge, Mass. “The parallels are striking. There was also tremendous disillusionment with the parliamentary system. The most striking fact about Weimar was not that the Nazis managed to destroy the Social Democrats and the Communists but that the traditional parties, the Conservative and Liberal parties, were hated and disappeared. It left a vacuum which the Nazis very cleverly and intelligently managed to take over.”

“The United States is extremely lucky that no honest, charismatic figure has arisen,” Chomsky went on. “Every charismatic figure is such an obvious crook that he destroys himself, like McCarthy or Nixon or the evangelist preachers. If somebody comes along who is charismatic and honest this country is in real trouble because of the frustration, disillusionment, the justified anger and the absence of any coherent response. What are people supposed to think if someone says ‘I have got an answer, we have an enemy’? There it was the Jews. Here it will be the illegal immigrants and the blacks. We will be told that white males are a persecuted minority. We will be told we have to defend ourselves and the honor of the nation. Military force will be exalted. People will be beaten up. This could become an overwhelming force. And if it happens it will be more dangerous than Germany. The United States is the world power. Germany was powerful but had more powerful antagonists. I don’t think all this is very far away. If the polls are accurate it is not the Republicans but the right-wing Republicans, the crazed Republicans, who will sweep the next election.”

“I have never seen anything like this in my lifetime,” Chomsky added. “I am old enough to remember the 1930s. My whole family was unemployed. There were far more desperate conditions than today. But it was hopeful. People had hope. The CIO was organizing. No one wants to say it anymore but the Communist Party was the spearhead for labor and civil rights organizing. Even things like giving my unemployed seamstress aunt a week in the country. It was a life. There is nothing like that now. The mood of the country is frightening. The level of anger, frustration and hatred of institutions is not organized in a constructive way. It is going off into self-destructive fantasies.”

“I listen to talk radio,” Chomsky said. “I don’t want to hear Rush Limbaugh. I want to hear the people calling in. They are like (suicide pilot) Joe Stack. What is happening to me? I have done all the right things. I am a God-fearing Christian. I work hard for my family. I have a gun. I believe in the values of the country and my life is collapsing.”
**********************************

He states in other articles that IF a right wing charismatic leader, i.e., Sarah Palin, was to take over, we would have another Nazi Germany.
HE is insanely left wing.
I thought when I first read the article it didn’t smell quite right. I should have gone with my instincts and checked further.

Noam Chomsky is just plain insane, and is the basis for a lot of the insanity seen on collge campuses.

It would take a Damascus Road experience for him to change.
