I'm familar with Gallup and large majority of Americans who like Israel and have been favoring Israel in their conflicts for decades. Because I'm one of those Americans. There is a shift in America towards Israel as a direct reult of Israeli actions such as: There was peace called Oslo Accords that got reversed; the second intifada from Sept 2000 onward; Sharon denying my Pres (Bush-even though I didn't vote for Bush) to give Arafatt a "round-trip" ticket from Ramallah to Beiret and return. The Arab League Proposal was agreed to and signed by 22 countries--an excellent starting point for peace talks. Annapolis occurred and then it was dropped. Lebanon '06 and Gaza "09 were terrible events. Mr Ben Jabo, that's why I'm excited by JStreet advocacy group. There's new hope. I know that US national security is now linked to peace between Pals and Jews.
