I believe that if Obama continues to push hard as he is doing now, these numbers could change again in the not too distant future. Once the penny drops and they see the writing on the wall, that is. Obama has a lot of leverage at his disposal. I'm not just talking about cutting off funding to the leeches in Israel. Admittedly this would be difficult for Obama due to the AIPAC owned congress and senate. However, secret weapons exist: the US sits on the UN Security Council, Israel does not. For years the US has been the lackey for Israel, voting exactly like Israel wants it to. Imagine if that was up for negotiations..........the mind boggles:)
Most Israelis resist US colony freeze demand: poll
Published: June 12, 2009,
Occupied Jerusalem: A new poll finds that nearly six of every 10 Israelis think Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should resist US demands to completely freeze construction in Jewish West Bank colonies.
The poll by the Maagar Mohot Polling Institute released the poll Friday. President Barack Obama has said he wants to aggressively pursue Mideast peacemaking, and colony construction historically has been an impediment.
Fifty-six percent of those surveyed said Netanyahu should not consent to the American demand to halt all colony construction, as opposed to 37 percent who said he should. Fifty percent said failure to comply would not provoke a crisis with the US, while 32 percent said they thought the colony freeze was a "make or break" issue for Washington. link
