Most U.S. voters believe Washington should not get more involved in the Israeli-Palestinian crisis if the violence continues to escalate, a Rasmussen poll revealed on Thursday.

Despite Secretary of State John Kerry’s previous efforts to relaunch the peace process, 55% of Americans now disagreed that the U.S. should get more involved. Instead, they said the U.S. should leave the situation alone.

Just 34% of likely voters said the U.S. should get more involved and 11% were undecided.

The figures, Rassmusen reported, were similar to another poll taken during the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas, which broke out shortly after the collapse of the U.S.-led peace talks.

This time, 60% of voters thought Americans supported Israelis more in the latest round of violence, while only 10% of voters said they thought Americans supported the Palestinians more.
