Posted on 11/13/2018 8:08:17 AM PST by Teleios Research
Teleios Research recently surveyed adolescents and millennials regarding opinions about the Israel-Palestine conflict. The survey was promoted on the Christian Instagram accounts, Instapray and Godsholyscriptures as well as a secular site, Mindsetofgreatness. Of the 146 participants the majority were: male (52%), <35 years old (74%), from the United States (34%), and evangelical (58%). Politically, evangelical Christians believe Israel is a democracy and all groups are treated fairly (28%); whereas non-evangelicals perceive Palestinians living in Israel are repressed (28%; P=0.002). Evangelicals generally support Israel regarding political and human rights issues (74%) compared to non-evangelicals (46%); while non-evangelicals support the Palestinian Authority (39%) more than evangelicals (8%, P>0.0001). Further, evangelicals favor the US government supporting Israel (70%); whereas non-evangelicals believe America should take no action (25%) or work actively against Israel (28%: P>0.0001). In addition, evangelicals, versus non-evangelicals, strongly indicate Israel should be a nation-state (83% vs 58% respectively; P>0.0001). In contrast evangelicals, more often than non-evangelicals, view the Palestinian Authority as a terrorist organization (16% vs. 7% respectively; P=0.005). Both groups recognize Israel's right to defend themselves against foreign threats (39% evangelical, 33% non-evangelical). Religiously, a plurality of evangelicals believe the Jewish state today is the Israel of the Bible (41%) versus those who are non-evangelicals (19%; P=0.048). Further, evangelicals indicate Christians should evangelize both Israelis and Palestinians (75%) whereas non-evangelicals believe neither group should be evangelized (32%; P>0.0001). In terms of a final solution to the Palestinian homeland, both evangelicals and non-evangelicals believe providing jobs and education was important (17 and 21%, respectively). Further, a number of evangelicals favor resettling the Palestinians within a current Arab country (16%), while non-evangelicals believe their settlement should remain within current lands of the Palestinian Authority (23%; P=0.043).

No PA, no conflict.
I wonder how much of past American support for Israel was based on then recent memories of the holocaust. Guilt if you will. I also wonder how much future support America will give to Israel as holocaust memories fade to the grave.
If you like your cell phone, you can keep your cell phone. And thank Israel for a lot of the essential technology which gave us the cell phone. And a lot of critical medical procedures and technology. And a lot of other technology we take for granted. And for the only stable democracy in the Middle East. The problem is the left-leaning teachers in the public school and university systems who, being libtards, do not bother to read past headlines. They read the anti-Israel propaganda put out by Muzzlimes and their enablers and go no further with research. I see a lot of posts on FR sniping Israel, "What do we need them for?" This originates from ignorance. For such a tiny country, an amazing amount of science, technology, and medical procedures are generated there. Can you say the same of a single Muzzlime country? Absolutely not. And can you place a price on having a stable democratic partner in an area of such turmoil? Only a truly uneducated yob would question the value of American aid to Israel.
