20. Well

 

I'm one Democrat who is probably in that 60 percent. I imagine most Jewish Democrats also agree. I don't think you can look at this in a general way. It is more complex than that. You have to seperate the Palestinians into two factions. They have two governments. If you notice, Israel is not attacking the more moderate Palestinians. It is the Government where Hamas is in power. Hamas's stated goal is to eliminate Israel and they don't agree with a two state solution. So this is where I disagree with most Democrats and take the side of the Israelis.

Any government that states to demolish your existence should be considered hostile. Any leader of a country would be negligent if they don't take Hamas's goals serious. What would you do if you was President of the United States and another Government stated they wanted to wipe you off the map? There is no other option but to destroy Hamas. It is either you or them.
