Pew: Democrats evenly divided on whether Israel or Hamas is more responsible for the current violence

posted at 8:41 pm on July 28, 2014 by Allahpundit

So that’s why Kerry made that mind-bendingly terrible ceasefire proposal. As usual, Obama was just playing to his base.

A small plurality of Democrats still blame Hamas more than they do Israel, but it’s within the margin of error.

dem 2014-07-28_04-17-54_PM

When asked whether Israel’s response to Hamas has been appropriate, 60 percent of Republicans say it’s either about right or hasn’t gone far enough. Among Democrats, that number is just 40 percent; nearly an equal amount, 35 percent, say that Israel’s gone too far. Which, I guess, helps explain that Michelle Nunn memo: Increasingly, if you’re a Democrat, you need a very strong counterincentive to resist the pro-Palestinian pull from rank-and-file liberals.

The demographic trend lines aren’t good here either if you’re hoping for bipartisan support of Israel for years to come:

demo

Among adults aged 30 or older, Hamas overwhelmingly bears more responsibility than Israel does. Among the liberal/libertarian cohort of people aged 18-29, Israel bears more responsibility — and this isn’t the only poll showing that. Note the racial numbers too. Blacks and (especially) Latinos are more likely to blame Israel than Democrats are generally: As noted, 26 percent of Dems overall hold Israel responsible versus 29 percent who say Hamas is responsible, a pro-Israel spread of +3. Among blacks, the spread is -2; among Latinos, it’s … -15. Presumably (i.e. hopefully) that’s a function of a big margin of error due to a small sample size but I’d like to see more polling on this issue. Given the spread between whites, blacks, and Latinos here, if the numbers are borne out by other data, the Israel/Palestinian dispute will become a partisan issue faster than anyone thinks. Although, given the enormous spike in support among Republicans that Israel’s enjoyed over the last 25 years, I suppose it already is.

Via Greg Hengler, here’s the Palestinian representative to the UN reassuring Wolf Blitzer that those tunnels the IDF have been destroying are mainly entry points for civilians to travel or something.

“Democrats in general” is not the same as the Democrat leadership. Blacks, in general, follow the leadership (is that RACIST?).

However, I’m not sure what to think about the Latino count.

First it is important to remember that even intelligent young people are very gullible. And the longer they remain single, the more likely they are to do, say, and believe incredibly stupid things.

But the biggest problem is the last 40 years of federal and union dominance over education at all levels. It’s a corrosive influence, and humanities (“liberal arts”) is approaching negative value.

I.e. they are hardly people who should even be asked anything except for the latest in pop culture.

Lets say that we have two heavyweight boxers in the ring. One is named Israel. The other is named Hamas. Hamas begged for this fight, and prepared years for this fight.

Finally in the ring, Hamas throws the first punch. Israel blocks and administers a body blow to Hamas. Hamas throws another punch. Israel blocks and administers a blow to the head of Hamas. And so it goes. Israel blocks and counter punches.

During the fight, we hear the Democrat judges screaming, “No fair! Israel is blocking too many punches.”

I know it is sad. The GOP needs to grow a spine and realize this is a gutter knife fight.

Republicans need to equate Democrats to National Socialism, and considering how stupid the base of the Democratic party is they will probably think it is a complement.

Pew: Democrats evenly divided on whether Israel or Hamas is more responsible for the current violence

Doesn’t matter what Israel does or doesn’t do. Hamas is going to keep going after the Jews no matter what.

Blame doesn’t matter. There is no solution to this beyond the Jews killing every Muslim, or the Muslims killing everyone in the world who isn’t Muslim. Then once they do that, the Muslims will kill each other because the other guy isn’t the “right kind” of Muslim.

Obama ♥ the Muslim Brotherhood.

Gang violence also thrives under which parties governance.

Who is responsible for this violence? It’s easy…

1) Whose Charter calls for the other Natin’s destruction, vowing to fight forever to achieve this goal?
- HAMAS

2) Who has launched over 2,000 rockets into the other natin since 8 July?
- Hamas

3) Who has spent millions of dollars buying rockets and digging sophisticated tunnels into the other country (instead of build up its infrastructure & economy) to use for attacks in that country?
- Hamas

4) If Israel ceased it’s attacks and never engaged in hostilities against HAMAS again, would Hamas do the same?
- NO

5) If Hamas ceased it’s attacks, changed it’s charter to eliminate the call for Israel’s destruction, and never engaged in hostilities again, would Israel do the same?
- YES

…and Democrats are too stupid to figure this out?!

I notice the left’s concern about the true genocide of Christians in the Middle East. But hey, they’re Christians, they had it coming, y’know.

Israel, the real America supports you, and what you have to do. Do not trust our president. Do what you must to survive.

45% of Jewish Americans are Democratic — 18% Republican.

I’m wondering why they support the party of anti-Semitism?
