"Fifty-six percent of Americans view Israel as a strong and trusted ally of the U.S., with a similar number agreeing that Israel is serious about wanting to reach an agreement with the Palestinians. Among Americans who believe that the chances for peace have declined, 47 percent blame the Palestinians, whereas 23 percent say that Israel is responsible." (As is well-known, the American public is known for its wide and deep knowledge of world affairs, and for its close attention to foreign news.) (thanks Sellam)
