Apartheid Israel Speaks

It's Friday again, and as we await today's body count of dead and wounded Palestinians in the Gaza Ghetto, contemplate these appalling (and telling) statistics:

"Israelis overwhelmingly back the shooting of peaceful Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border and US President Donald Trump's plans to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Occupied Jerusalem, a new poll has found. Conducted by Tel Aviv University and the Israel Democracy Institute, the poll shows that... 83% of Israelis say they support the shooting policy. Since March 30, 44 Palestinians have been killed, including 5 minors, and over 6,000 others injured in aggressive attacks by the Israeli military on the great March of Return protests staged at Gaza's border... The poll [also] shows that 63% of all Israelis say the embassy move benefits Israel." (Israelis strongly back shooting Palestinians at Gaza border,, 3/5/18)

Harking back to an earlier post of yours MERC about Australian Jewish support for Israel, I found this article on the Conversation:

Apologies if you have already referenced it. It seems to show that US Jewish support for Israel is considerably lower (and declining) than Australian Jewish support.
