Most Americans Oppose Apartheid Policies in Israel

There is no more debate in Israel (this article appears is from the Jerusalem Post) than in the U.S. about our support for that country. The U.S. mainstream press/media mostly bans debate. And they certainly don’t want you to know that the American people do not support carte blanche support for the Apartheid regime in Israel. And more importantly, the American people are divided while Congress is not. They are totally beholden to the pro-Israel lobby:

A majority of US voters endorsed restrictions that would keep Israel from spending US defense assistance to detain Palestinian minors, destroy Palestinian buildings, or annex parts of the West Bank, according to the results of a new poll conducted during the most recent Israel-Gaza conflict.

The poll, conducted by Data for Progress, a progressive polling firm, sought to capture public opinion on a question that is increasingly dividing Democratic lawmakers: whether US aid to Israel should be withheld if Israel does not meet certain conditions. For many years, that opinion has been considered off-limits for politicians, but that has shifted recently with the rise of a progressive left in the Democratic Party.
