JNS.org – More than a third of Americans favor either some type of economic sanctions or more “serious action” against Israel for construction in Judea and Samaria, a new survey has found.

According to the survey conducted by the Saban Forum at the Brookings Institution think tank, 31 percent of Americans recommend that the US limit its opposition to Jewish construction to words, 27 percent recommend that the US do nothing, another 27 percent recommend economic sanctions, and 10 percent recommend taking more serious action.

The survey was published ahead of the Saban Forum’s annual conference from Dec. 4-6, titled “Israel and the United States: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow.” The conference’s planned speakers include Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, US Secretary of State John Kerry, and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

    Of course this article does not mention the obvious, that 2/3 of Americans, the immense majority oppose any boycott of Israel.
