A poll conducted by CNN late last month showed that 67 percent of Americans side with Israel in its conflict with the Palestinian Arabs. That number is up from 60 percent of Americans who sided with Israel in a similar poll conducted two years ago.

Just 16 percent said they side with the Palestinians over Israel.

An overwhelming 82 percent majority of Americans said they view Israel as a friend and ally. Only Great Britain received higher marks at 98 percent.
