As tensions come to a head and violence ensues between Israel and Hamas, a new poll shows that the partisan gap in Americans’ sympathies toward the Middle East is wider than it has been since the 1970s.

According to a national survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, 51% of Americans sympathize with Israel in the conflict between Israel and Palestine. 14% of Americans sympathize with Palestine, 15 chose neither side, and 3% sympathize with both sides. This survey was conducted July 8-14, 2014, using the opinions of 1,805 adults, obtained by telephone interviews.

There were notable differences between age ranges, and after finding that 60% of subjects who were 65 and older, and 56% of subjects who were ages 50-64 said they sympathized more with Israel, compared to 47% of subjects ages 30-49, the survey concluded, “Those under 50 also are more likely than older Americans to sympathize more with the Palestinians.”

According to Fox News, Israel and Hamas agreed Wednesday to a five-hour cease-fire in order to allow humanitarian aid into Gaza, following a request from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency.

The Israeli military said in a statement Wednesday that it would hold its fire for five hours starting at 10:00 a.m. local time on Thursday.

As Ben Swann points out, while the majority of Americans support Israel, many are not aware of the facts of what is actually taking place this battle.

There is a lack of understanding by the American people,” said Swann, who filled in for national radio host Steve Deace on Tuesday. Swann said that while Americans have a right to their opinion, “American media has not painted a very clear picture that no one in Israel has died or been injured by Hamas rockets, while villages in Gaza are being bombed via airstrike.”

Children are being killed in these strikes, including on a coastal road west of Gaza City. Wednesday that airstrike killed four Palestinian boys, who were cousins and ages 9 to 11.  Seven others, adults and children, were wounded in the strike.
