1. Flawed article
John ,   Europe   (08.17.09)
Rasmussen is respected, but it is FAR from being the best and the only. Ettinger is not precise: he writes - "In contrast, only 39%, 23% and 17% believe Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Iraq, respectively, are allies of the US." WHAT are these groups? Is 39% feeling Eg, SA and Iq are allies, 23 or 17%? Please also have in mind that this is POLITICAL SURVEY, not the "I like them" poll - I have no doubt that Americans would coldly watch nuclear bombs falling on Tel Aviv and other cities. In term of JOINT PARTNERSHIP between West against threat - Islamic terrorism - yes, we are preferred. In other cases - doubt it. Very. Also, bear in mind that WASPs, Israel's greatest ally, have in their agenda to CONVERT JEWS TO CHRISTIANITY. The moment they will perceive that it is not possible is the moment all support for Israel will fall. Just because politician has a prayer before session and because there are statues of Moses - does that make us feel "Woa, thank God, now we are in blessed times, we have nothing to worry, let's party". So Ettinger showed some nice facts - but all in all, that does not mean nothing.
2. As long as the vicious anti Zionist
jason white ,   afula,israel   (08.17.09)
jihadist sits in the White House, we have no ally. he and his gang of anti Israel "jews" and non Jews led by emmanuel will do what they can to weaken and try to destroy Israel. Hopefully we will see the dems lose both Houses next year and turn b.o. into a one time mistake. But again I will write and ask why emmanuel and axelrod are not excommunicated from the Jewish religion. Why are there no Rabbis with guts in the U.S. or Israel?
3. The Truth about Obama
Steve   (08.17.09)
Barack Obama is a fantastic public speaker, but thats about it. He is a man who has very little experience at managing, well, anything of significance, who is now sitting in the Oval Office. The American people made a mistake at the last election. Barack Obama's inexperience and lack of understand of international affairs is going to strengthen terrorists and harm America in the long run. The man who is most dangerous to Israel does not hide in a Hizbullah bunker. He does not spend his time at Hamas' offices in Gaza. He doesn't have an office in Tehran. The man who is most dangerous to Israel sits in the Oval Office, behind a large desk, where he plans Israel's demise. Worst of all, he doesn't even know hes doing it.
4. Count on many new faces in the 2010 Congress, #2
Cameron ,   USA   (08.17.09)
Folk grow angrier by the week with this administration. The traditional grace period of goodwill that a new Pres. receives is most definitely over. The partisan divide grows yet wider.
5. To #1
M. Hartley ,   Atlanta, US   (08.17.09)
So, the WASP's support Israel, because they want to convert Jews? That's odd. My observation is based on a small picture and personal experience only, but of the "mixed" couples I know, there is a much greater tendency on the part of the Christians in those marriages to want to convert to Judaism, than the other way around. In the end, it's the realization that all the sprinkling, dunking, and magic incantations don't change who and what they are that preserves the status quo. Not eating leavened bread for one occasion or nailing "amulets" to one's doors are no less peculiar than having kids chase after colored eggs in the spring or decorating one's house in December with trees that look like Mardi Gras Gone Wild. The guys in the White House come and go, but when the Christians I know need a good lawyer, doctor, CPA, or computer geek, they look for Jewish names :-). Not believing in any religion and with my luck, I'd end up with one of those Jews for Jesus people, making me crazier than some folks swear that I am, already.....
6. However religion is being attacked in the U.S.
Chaya ,   Bat Yam   (08.17.09)
Christianity is under attack in the U.S. by the extreme Left.
7. Obama may surpass Carter into becoming
Mongo ,   Paris   (08.17.09)
The Worst President of the USA.
8. obama is set to fall
tony ,   abuja, nigeria   (08.17.09)
Psalm 122 1I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. 2Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem. 3Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together: 4Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD. 5For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David. 6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. 7Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. 8For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. 9Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good. Psalm 121:4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. hussein obama is set to fall. Kings David, Solomon (builded a Temple in Jerusalem), Rehoboam, Abijah, Abijam, Asa to name a few lived and reigned as kings in Israel for many years in Jerusalem - more than 3,000 years ago. Where were the Palistinians during these periods. Will hussein obama be able to oblitrate history? Well, and of course, He that keeps Israel will not slumber. O' that Bibi and Israel will not compromise their stand.
9. and 20.457213 % think peeing your pants is cool.
ari   (08.17.09)
always take these polls with a grain of salt
10. CanU immagine if Palin said Emperor ofJapan was on Missourri
Alan ,   SA   (08.17.09)
or her Grandfather was one of those Liberated Auschwitz. Then Katy Kouric would have wiped the floor with her.
11. Some facts folks.
David ,   USA, exile   (08.17.09)
Yerushalayim is the oldest city on Earth. It exists because it is the city of the Great King. HaShem holds title. Every nation on Earth, (I believe that is about 7 mighty empires), have tried to destroy her. All 7 no longer exists but Yerushalayim stands! Talk to your Rabbis Is'rael. They will tell you. When the Tribes of the Northern Kingdom return from exile they will be coming from the West and they will tell you who your Mashiach is. Yoseph Lives!
12. These figures are astounding when one considers
Shalom Freedman ,   Jerusalem Israel   (08.17.09)
These figures are astounding when one considers the concerted efforts of many in the media, and academic elites to demonize Israel. They are astounding when one considers how Middle East Studies Departments at many American universities are in effect Arab propaganda institutes. They are astounding when one considers just how much prejudiced information, how much bias against Israel there is coming from the extreme Left, and the Islamist right in America. Israel's supporters need to struggle in those areas where it is now most being defamed, in order to ensure support for Israel will be strong in the future.
13. Our media needs to show how Arabs treat Blacks in Africa
David ,   Boston, USA   (08.17.09)
ITs truly abominable what is going on in Africa. Liberal left gives the ruling Arabs a pass for racist behavior.
14. The "common sense" of American people
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (08.17.09)
However ignorant some of my fellow Americans sometimes appear (I love comic Jay Leno's "Jaywalking" pieces), in the end their collective "common sense" often trumps the presumptions of the "best and the brightest". Despite the anti-Israel slants of the mainstream journalists and the left-wing attitudes of pubic television and radio, the American people still "get it". Moral relativism doesn't cut it with them; they know who the good guys and the bad guys are. And, no, most Christian Zionists are not supporting Israel just in the hope of converting us. (cf David Brog's "Standing with Israel") These same people, if the US every tried to impose a "solution" on Israel by force, would rise up in opposition.
15. jesusalen
jesusalen ,   jesusalen   (08.18.09)
jesusalen is the revelation of the lord jesus christ (apocalypse 21)
16. #2
P ,   Philadelphia   (08.18.09)
Because Judaism never required Zionism. When Zionism started, Judaism was very controversial in the community. It still is, even if the pro-zionist Jews are a lot louder than those neutral or against it.
17. Strange
Shaalan   (08.18.09)
Ally today maybe tomorrow Enemy .. so the writer compare isreal as nation ( consist of 2 million and growing slowly with many settlers start go back to thier real countries) with 1.5 billion muslims ?!!!!! World is changing fellows >> Isreal age is so short more than you believe.
