American Support for Israel at an all time high

A new poll release by Gallup on the eve of President Obama's trip to Israel and the West Bank shows American support for Israel is at a record high.  American sympathies favor Israel over the Palestinians, by a 64%-12% margin.  This is its highest level since the 1991 Gulf War.

Exemplifying this unbreakable bond between our nations, last week, an astonishing $27 million was raised by the Friends of the IDF, in a gala event at the Waldorf Astoria.  This is what 1,400 of Israel's closest friends look like:

And the Palestinians?   In anticipation of President Obama's March 22  trip to Bethlehem, to visit the Church of the Nativity a billboard with his likeness was ripped down and defaced with swastikas.
