Lumping categories & support for Israel is bipartisan

Reader comment on item: Republicans and Democrats Look at the Arab-Israeli Conflict

Submitted by Emanuel Goldman (United States), Apr 4, 2006 at 18:23

How come "moderate" and "liberal" Dems are presented as two groups but moderate" and "liberal" Repubs are lumped together? (Unless there are hardly any more liberal Repubs?) Wonder what trend THEY would show if broken into two groups? I wonder if they were lumped together because the results did not support your hypothesis?

But aside from the "results", this is a very dangerous exercise for Israel. The LAST thing anyone who cares about Israel should want is politicizing (in the US) the Israel-Arab conflict. This must not be cast in terms of Democrat vs. Republican. It's too important
to Israel's survival, and support for Israel must not be allowed to be cast as a partisan issue. Doing so is a disservice to Israel.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I don't know why Gallup put the moderate and liberal Republicans together - perhaps not many of them?

Agreed, this is not good news for Israel. It was better off two decades ago when left-right differences hardly mattered at all, as I showed at http://www.danielpipes.org/article/169.
