: i dunno about fred...but almost every american (someone born/raised here) i'm talking to about palestine is AGAINST israel and PRO palestine.
I'm going to have to disagree here. I have watched Fox News, CNN, CNBC, all the major channels. Every major paper and every major channel says things like "Yasser Arafat is a terrorist". Even the US government recently wrote off Arafat, saying that no US official will meet with him, and in Bush's speech he said that Arafat needs to step down.
The rest of the world (Europeans, etc.) have a good head on their shoulders, but in the US, it is still DEFINITELY pro-Israel. By it, I mean the national sentiment and the media, etc.
: The only pro israelis i've met are not white christian americans but jews. And even they are in a minority now...
: and the media...i know that besides of course Commentary, National Interest, and the Wall Street Journal...most media outlets are against israel. Remember that whole cnn thing being pulled out of Israeli cable companies ? the washington post and almost every other left of center newspaper/mag is pro palestine now.
