Poll: 76% Of American Jews Think Arabs Want To Destroy Israel
Haaretz ^ | October 12, 2010 | By Natasha Mozgovaya

Posted on 10/12/2010 8:47:55 AM PDT by Strategy

An overwhelming majority of American Jews believe that the goal of the Arabs "is not the return of occupied territories but rather the destruction of Israel," according to a recent poll released by the American Jewish Committee.

Approximately 76% of respondents in the AJC's fall 2010 Survey of American Jewish Opinion agreed with a question to that effect, while only 20% disagreed.

Meanwhile, 95% of the American Jews think Palestinians should be required to recognize Israel as a Jewish state in any future peace settlement.

Only because Arabs SAY SO constantly.

So, given the fact 76% BELIEVE this...

Roughly the same percentage voted for someone they KNOW is anti-Israel...

Where do they stand in support of the existence of the Jewish state?

OK, are the other 24% stupid???? The Iranian Dictator doesn't mince words on this subject. Don't they believe that he means what he says???

By the way, he says the same thing about The Great Satan (The United States). I would imagine that there is a larger percentage of non-Muslim or non-Jewish Americans who don't believe it either.

They are more worried about potentially being evangelized by Christians.

Count me in with the Jews because I believe that, too.

And, yes, Sengir, there is a strange disconnect between this belief and the voting patterns. I think they’ve lost their minds.

Nah, the nastiest ones hate the ultra-orthodox the most. I watched some “jewish” comdienne live make viscious fun of orthodox Jews the other day. Never seen such vitriol in my life.

Just general dislike of religion and God, I think.

Well, they are wrong, Arabs, per se, don’t want to destroy Israel, Muslims want to, and they also want to destroy any other infidel society and install Islam as the dominant culture(notice I didn’t say religion)in the world.

I think those 76% are correct and there’s no end to the quotes they can cite as evidence. I’m guessing the other 24% are Democrats.

Shows a majority of American Jews seem to know the enemy
better than the majority of Americans in politics do. The question is put rightly— will they continue to vote for
the Muslim from Kenya?

I have to say, Arab Christians I have met from Israel seem to want to destroy Israel. So do most of the Lebanese Christians I've met. What do you find?

Well, wait! This poll only looks at the percentage of American Jews who believe Arabs want to destory Israel. That doesn’t speak to the percentage of American Jews who voted for Obozo, and who continue to support The One! So, I’m thinking that the percentage of American Jews who are idiots may just far exceed 24%.

My question as well. Even though the return of Isralis to Israel is biblical and they just returned to their land, why do liberal Jews hate Israel so. I really don’t get it.

They don't hate Israel so much as they hate any organized religion that would infringe on their secular lifestyle. It's about political ideology for them, not religion, and they are libtard ideologues.
