Groundbreaking poll: American support for one democratic state is equal to support for two state solution in Israel

A new poll conducted by Shibley Telhami at the University of Maryland shows unprecedented support among Americans for the one-state solution in Israel/Palestine, and stronger sanctions against Israel for the occupation, as well as growing criticism of the Israeli role in U.S. politics. Here are some of the findings of the poll (PDF), which was conducted in September and October among 2,352 Americans: 35 percent support a single democratic state in which both Jews and Arabs are full and equal citizens;36 percent support Israeli and Palestinian states side by side;11 percent support maintaining the occupation indefinitely;8 percent support Israeli annexation of the occupied Palestinian territories without offering equal citizenship to Palestinians. Comment: So this means that roughly 20% of those polled in the US couldn't care less about the well-being of Palestinians - while a larger percentage is growing in the opposite direction.
