Stop the colonies or face exclusion

The profound disconnect between the Zionist lobby and the general public is revealed yet again in this intriguing study:

A new poll finds that three-quarters of Americans think that Israel should not build settlements in the Palestinian territories. This is up 23 points from when this question was last asked in 2002.

One third of Americans show more sympathy for Israel than the Palestinians, substantially more than the 12 percent who express more sympathy for the Palestinians.

However the largest number–51 percent–expresses equal levels of sympathy for each side. The percentage expressing equal levels of sympathy is up 10 points from 2002.

When will Western governments equally pressure both the Israelis and Palestinians towards peace?
