Israel-Palestine and US Public Opinion
with Dr. Shibley Telhami
American public attitudes toward Israel and Palestine have dramatically shifted in the past few years,
particularly among liberals. Whether on Capitol Hill or among the general public, open criticism of Israeli
policies is no longer taboo, nor are questions relating to US aid to Israel. Public support for
Palestinians under Israeli occupation and their quest for civil and human rights is no longer a fringe
position. While the needle is moving, the Israel-Palestine question continues to be an increasingly polarizing
issue in the US public sphere.
To analyze the recent developments and the overarching trends on this matter, APN hosted Prof. Shibley Telhami, a leading expert in public opinion on Israel-Palestine. In this webinar, Prof. Telhami presented findings from his recent poll on this issue and compared recent surveys to past data.
The webinar will be held on Thursday, September 2nd, at 12:00 noon.
