Gallup: Israel’s ‘Favorable’ Rating in U.S. at 23-Year High

By Terence P. Jeffrey

Israel’s “favorable” rating in the United States has climbed to a 23-year high in the Gallup poll, even as the Obama administration has been pressuring the Israeli government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to make a peace deal that would result in the creation of a Palestinian state.

Almost four times as many Americans view Israel favorably as view the Palestinian Authority favorably, according to Gallup.

Currently, 72 percent of Americans surveyed say they have a favorable opinion of Israel, while only 23 percent say they have an unfavorable opinion.

Only 19 percent of Americans say the have a favorable opinion of the Palestinian Authority. That ties the Palestinian Authority with Libya, which was also viewed favorably by only 19 percent of Americans.

In the 25 years Gallup has been asking Americans for their opinion of Israel (in 27 different surveys), Israel’s rating has been higher than it is now on only one occasion. That was when it hit 79 percent in a survey conducted from Jan. 30, 1991 to Feb. 2, 1991, during the Gulf War—when then-Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was firing SCUD missiles at Tel Aviv and other locations in Israel in an unsuccessful attempt to goad Israel into joining the war.

Muslim Invasion: The Fuse Is Burning

Dr. Don Boys

Muslin Invasion: The Fuse is Burning! is an interesting, informative, and for the politically correct and infuriating read. Islam, Muslims, immigration, Jihad, Sharia, and the war against our civilization, culture, and creed is a present reality. Gutless public officials are selling us short either by complicity with the enemy or due to a doctrinaire commitment to idiotic tolerance ideology. Whatever the case, citizens must stand up against the invasion now before it is to late. The author suggests that the fuse is burning and the results will end in a complete upheaval of America and every free nation, unless we act now. Forget the lame stream media. Forget Obama. Common sense mandates, our very survival demands that we act NOW to keep America from going off the cliff; This book promises to be a life changing read.
