Why Millennials Dislike Israel

Many have taken notice of the recent Pew poll that shows decreasing support for Israel among millennials. Overall the poll showed solid American support for Israel; 54% sympathize more with Israel than with the Palestinians, while only 19% said they sympathize with the Palestinians. But the poll also showed alarming generational contrasts; only 43% of millennials (born after 1980), as opposed to 61% of baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964), feel sympathy toward Israel. Another recent poll showed that fully one-thirdof millennials would support a boycott of Israel.

Why this decrease in support among millennials? The Pew poll must be read not simply as a story about changing attitudes regarding Israel but about a changing America. Broadly, the issues are Protestantism and patriotism.

    those are all valid but don’t discount the cancer of ever more acceptable antisemitism.

    Diverse immigration has been poison in a thousand ways.

    Generation Leech is by and large totally amoral. They seem to be the worst type of virulent atheistic nihilists that have ever been spawned. They want a society where there is no difference between good and bad so they can do what ever they want, whenever they want, with no repercussions, and hopefully a trophy at the end.

      I foresee an event in which thousands of Millennials will die. They STILL won’t get it.

    I see this resulting from a very successful, on-going indoctrination/propaganda to which they have been exposed during their “education” along with the MSM and Hollywood. So no, ignorance is not bliss; it can be deadly.

    Ponder Donne’s “no man is an island” in the context of the millennials reaping some future agonies for not recognising nor utilising their critical faculties to the utmost.
    I freely admit I will be full of a smug righteous satisfaction…
    Another bottle waiter!

    Because our left wing education and media establishment have indoctrinated them all to be little Hitler Youth fascists.
