Many more Americans continue to side with Israel rather than the Palestinian Authority, butwith President Obamas first visit there days awaymost also prefer to leave peace negotiations to the two protagonists, rather than having the United States take the lead.
Fifty-five percent in this ABC News/Washington Post poll sympathize more with Israel, vs. 9 percent who side more with the Palestinian Authority, with the rest favoring neither, or undecided. Its been a similar gap for many years, including polling back to the 1980s testing Israel vs. the Arab nations of the Middle East.
In another expression of support for Israel, more Americans say the Obama administration has put too little pressure on the Palestinian Authority than too much pressure34 vs. 8 percent. They split about evenly, by contrast, on whether the administration has put too much or too little pressure on Israel. About four in 10, meanwhile, think the U.S. has appropriately pressured each side in the conflict.

It’s best not to have obama involved. Everything he touches hurts anything good and productive. He has never done one good thing. Not once.
I don’t want anyone to lead peace talks. I just want the muslims to leave Israel alone.
He is a lazy, lying , piece of sh*t.
If the Muslims destroyed all their weapons, there would be peace.
If Israel destroyed all her weapons, there would be another holocaust.
Perfect discription so accurate!
The US, especially with a Moslem president, needs to sit down and STFU and let Israel and the Moslem terrorists work this out.
> 9 percent who side more with the Palestinian Authority
That tells me the USA should identify those who approve of terrorist actions against Israel and ship them to the gaza trash dump.
Well thats a good start...I just want the muslims to leave..period!
Gallup’s numbers are even higher
