Dude , i'm an israeli myself . This is just my impression of americans. They seem to hate Israel with passion while literally worshipping the UK for understandable reasons. So whom would they welcome more? a nationality they admire or one they hate ?
An 'Amira Hass Israeli'?
American Public Opinion Toward Israel
By Mitchell Bard
(Updated May 2013)
Support for Israel is not restricted to the Jewish community. Americans of all ages, races and religions sympathize with Israel. This support is also nonpartisan, with a majority of Democrats and Republicans consistently favoring Israel by large margins over the Arabs.
The best indication of Americans' attitude toward Israel is found in the response to the most consistently asked question about the Middle East: “In the Middle East situation, are your sympathies more with Israel or with the Arab nations?” The organization that has conducted the most surveys is Gallup. Support for Israel in Gallup Polls has remained consistently around the 50% mark since 1967. The most recent poll, reported by Gallup in February 2013 found that sympathy for Israel tied the all-time high of 64%, matching the figure during the first Gulf War. By comparison only 12% expressed support for the Palestinians. In recent years Gallup has noted that many Americans have moved from “no preference” into the pro-Israeli column. A CNN poll in November 2012, after Israel began Operation Pillar of Defense, found that 59% of Americans supported Israel and 13% sympathized with the Palestinians. Despite the violence of the preceding years, and a steady stream of negative media coverage, this exceeds the level of support (56%) Israel enjoyed after the 1967 war, when many people mistakenly believe that Israel was overwhelmingly popular.
Overall, support for Israel has been on the upswing since 1967. In the 1970s, the average level of support for Israel was 42%, in the 1980s, it was 46%, and, in the 1990s, 47%, including the record highs during the Gulf War. Since 2000, support for Israel is averaging 51%. In the 33 polls conducted during President Obama's term, support for Israel has soared to an average of 55%, continuing an upward trend since the 1980s, while sympathy for the Palestinians has sunk to 12%, continuing a downward spiral that also began in the 1980s. On average, Israel is favored by nearly 4 to 1.
Gallup also takes regular polls on world affairs. Overall favorable ratings of Israel in February 2013 were 66%, ranking behind Canada, Great Britain, Germany, Japan, France and India...
Polls also indicate the public views Israel as a reliable U.S. ally, a feeling that grew stronger during the Gulf crisis. In May 2011, CNN found that 82% of Americans believed Israel is “friendly” or an “ally.”
