Three out of Four Americans Support Israel in War Against Hamas - Poll
A majority of American voters support Israel, polling from the immediate aftermath of the October 7 massacre shows. The poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, Connecticut between October 12-16 shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans (76%) agreed that supporting Israel was in the American national interest, while only 17% disagreed.
Americans are largely united in their support of Israel with 84% of Republicans agreeing that supporting Israel was in the American national interest, 76% of Democrats agreeing, and 74% of Independents agreeing. With 12%, 17%, and 19% disagreeing respectively.
In the minority that disagrees are 31 student groups from Harvard University. A letter which was titled “Joint Statement by Harvard Palestine Solidarity Groups on the Situation in Palestine” and signed by these 31 student groups condemned Israel after the unprecedented attack from Hamas earlier this month.
“We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence. The apartheid regime is the only one to blame,” the letter read.
Shortly afterward, Israeli billionaire Idan Ofer announced that he and his wife are resigning from the Harvard Kennedy School's executive board because of “the shocking and insensitive response by the president of the university, who did not condemn the letter.”
On a similar note, another Israeli, Nathalie Sehaik, was recently reported to be operating a factory that produces and donates 10,000 meals a day for IDF soldiers. Furthermore, famous American director Quentin Tarantino traveled to Israel last week to visit with Israeli troops and “boost IDF morale”. (JPost / VFI News)
