Stay Out of The Israeli Conflict

A majority of Americans DO NOT want the United States to become entangled in the Israeli conflict with Hezbollah and Palestinians.

In a recent Zogby poll, 52 percent said they do not want the U.S. to take sides with anyone.

Fifty-one percent of Republicans said the U.S. should side with Israel; a meager 22 percent of Democrats want America to side with Israel, but a whopping 62 percent want the U.S. to "remain neutral."

The poll also reflects that a majority of women want the U.S. to stay out of the conflict at 59 percent; only 45 percent of men think the U.S. should be an honest broker and not side with Israel.

Finally, Americans were split on the question of whether Israel used excessive force.

Thirty percent "said it was excessive, 24 [percent] said Israel did not use enough force against Hezbollah fighters. Another 28 [percent] said the force was just about right, and 16 [percent] said they were not sure. Men were more likely to approve of the force used by Israel than women.
