4/26/19 Grant Smith on the Shifting of American Support for Israel

Grant Smith comes back on the show to explain the polling around American support for Palestine. Last month Gallup quietly revealed that support for Palestine among Americans is now higher than support for Israel. In the past these polls, which always claimed Americans favored Israel, have been used to justify Israel’s privileged status in American foreign policy—so it’s no wonder powerful forces want to keep results like this quiet.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Gallup Quietly Admits ‘Israeli vs. Palestinian’ Sympathy Polls Are Misleading” (Antiwar.com)
  • “TRANSCEND MEDIA SERVICE » Global Language Dictionary – The Israel Project 2009” (transcend.org)
  • “Lock and Load” (Brookings)

Grant F. Smith is the author of a number of books including Big Israel: How Israel’s Lobby Moves America and Divert!. He is director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington, D.C.
