And another poll proves that…
Asked to choose between one of two statements, 54 percent of respondents – statistically half – said that “Jewish organizations that advocate before foreign governments and identify themselves as pro-Israel should always support the policies of the current Israeli government,” according to the survey published Tuesday.
Further on “[T]he poll also found that a majority – 55 percent to 36 percent – agreed that a two-state solution is “essential to Israel’s survival as a national home of the Jewish people as a vibrant democracy.” A plurality, 48 percent to 41 percent, agreed that “it is essential that the European Union, along with the United States, put pressure on both parties and help them achieve a reasonable and rapid solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”
The only logical conclusion to be drawn is that a majority of Israelis believe that the proper way to go is not the path followed by the current government. However, they are not in any hurry to elect a different government nor do they want anybody else doing anything to tell them that they should be electing a different government or pursuing different policies. So being pro-Israel for the majority of Israelis is being the guy in the front seat pouring more drinks for the driver of the car as he heads toward the cliff.
