New York – In a poll released last week by the Anti-Defamation
League, Americans were asked to choose between two statements.
1) Palestinians deserve their own homeland – an independent State.
Peace in the Middle East will be strengthened by the creation of this
State as soon as possible.
2) A Palestinian State should only be established after Palestinians
end the terrorist violence and accept Israel’s legitimacy.
Number 2 was chosen by 59% of the respondents while only 31% chose
number one. This was a dramatic reversal from a similar poll taken in
2003, where 38% chosen number 2 and 45% chose number one.
Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) President Morton A. Klein
said, “It is encouraging to see that almost 2/3 of Americans now
understand that the establishment of a Palestinian State would only
mean establishing a terrorist State. We urge President Bush to stop
talking about such a state and instead commit our government to use
all of the resources at its disposal to pressure the Palestinian
regime to dismantle the terror groups and end the indoctrination to
hate Jews and Americans, and put Israel on all its maps and textbooks
where they are now conspicuously absent. The President should work to
end terror states, not create new ones run by the
Palestinian/Fatah/Hamas terrorists.” (©2005 Zionist Organization of
