Sympathy for Palestinians over Israel up sharply among younger Americans

Democrats are more than four times as likely as Republicans to say they sympathize more with the Palestinians than with Israel, according to a survey published Thursday, and sympathy for the Palestinians among Americans overall is growing.

Sympathy for the Palestinians is up most sharply among the youngest American adults, growing threefold over the last decade, the new survey by the Pew Research Center shows. Some 27 percent of millennials say they are more sympathetic to the Palestinians than Israel; in 2006 the figure was 9 percent. The share of those favoring Israel has held steady at about 43 percent.

On Israel, the survey also shows one of the widest-ever gaps between the two main political parties.

      It starts way before college/university, add to that the same propaganda spewed daily by the so-called MSM and this is the result.

    Israel is a white (or at least, white enough) Western nation, therefore it is automatically at fault. No further analysis of the situation is required, as the political science has been settled with mathematical precision.

    It is really Cool , in this day and age, to hate the Jews or at the very least to blame them
    For Everything that ain’t Cool.
    It ain’t Cool -to not be a fool and resist the Green Machine.
    It ain’t Cool – to criticise, an invasion by a people that advocate your extinction.
    It ain’t Cool –to want to preserve your Country ,Values and Culture .
    It ain’t Cool—- to think that a Man is a Man and a women is a woman.
    It ain’t Cool —-to protect a Child from the perverted wisdom of the Government.

      The guy in the video looks exactly like my last tenant – ,cap ,beard and body build. He has wonderful ideas and has some good contacts but the part of doing business where he really succeeds—
      Is the Burning of Bridges .

        I’ve been considering cultivating myself a nice toothbrush mustache a la der fuhrer to see what sort of reaction I draw. No-one is bothered by Taliban style beards (except me), indeed they’re a damn fashion, so I can’t see there being a problem. Mrs D in N Bby’s taking some persuading though.
