What Australians really think about Israel/Palestine? (mainly confusion)

The main message from the latest Essential Media polling is that most people don’t really know much about the conflict and remain unsure who is to blame (see here and here).

A few points. Close to a majority said that criticising Israel isn’t anti-Semitic (take note Zionist lobby). Many believed the issue fueled anti-Muslim sentiment in Australia. Most didn’t think Australia should back Israel over the Palestinians.
