Poll: 79% Back Israel’s War on Hamas, Favor Eliminating Terror Group

0:00

Despite the efforts of corporate media and academia, a significant majority of Americans still side with Israel in its ongoing conflict with Hamas. People also believe Israel is doing its best to minimize civilian casualties.

A Harvard Caps Harris Poll of 1,660 registered voters found that, by a margin of 79 to 21 percent, those surveyed support Israel over the terrorist group Hamas. Additionally, 69 percent believe Israel is trying to minimize civilian casualties, while 31 percent do not.

Another clear majority of 66 to 34 percent said they would support a ceasefire only if hostages held by Hamas are released and Hamas is removed from power in Gaza. In essence, Americans are aware that a decisive victory over Hamas is necessary to prevent future conflicts.

When asked if Hamas should be entirely removed from Gaza or allowed to continue governing, 78 percent of voters favored removal, while 22 percent were against it.

If President Joe Biden had his way, Israel would declare a ceasefire today, allowing Hamas to continue governing Gaza. This is opposed by a majority of voters.

Regarding whether Israel should invade the Hamas stronghold of Rafah to end the war, 76 percent said yes, while 24 percent said no. Additionally, while current polls show Joe Biden losing to former President Donald Trump by six points in November, there is more troubling news for Biden. When asked if the Biden administration’s decision to withhold weapons from Israel would make things better or worse, most respondents said it would make things worse.

“Biden has said he will not provide weapons to Israel if it proceeds with a military operation in Rafah,” the pollsters noted, then asked, “Do you think such statements mainly embolden Hamas and its backers like Iran to continue the war, or will Biden’s threat to withhold weapons ‘end the war by preventing Israeli action against Hamas?’” By a margin of 56 to 44 percent, people said Biden’s actions would embolden adversaries.

When queried if Biden’s statements about withholding weapons “help or hurt ongoing negotiations to get the hostages back,” by a margin of 58 to 42 percent, people said “hurt.” Moreover, 57 percent of voters want Biden to provide Israel with the weapons needed to complete the mission in Rafah.

Why, then, with numbers like these, is Biden perceived as anti-Israel?

The Democratic party has accepted anti-Semitic elements into its coalition. After alienating many centrist voters over the last 20 years, Democrats needed to find support elsewhere, leading them to embrace groups with anti-Semitic views. This voting bloc is particularly significant in Michigan, a crucial swing state with a large population of Arab voters. Biden is believed to need these votes to secure reelection in November and might be willing to compromise Israel’s security to achieve that goal.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise. The same Democrats who support releasing violent criminals into low-income neighborhoods, allowing late-term abortions, and encouraging irreversible gender transitions in children are seen by some as also willing to endanger Israel.

Critics argue that these actions are indicative of a deeper disdain for traditional values.
