    A new opinion poll shows the Israeli regime is losing support among the American public as more US citizens question Tel Aviv's commitment to peace.

    The survey presented to Israeli leaders last week was conducted by pollster and strategist Stanley Greenberg and sponsored by America's pro-Israeli organization, the Israel Project, Ha'aretz reported on Thursday.

    The opinion poll revealed the number of Americans who think the US needs to support Israel dropped to 51 percent in July from 58 percent in June and 63 percent in August 2009.

    On Tel Aviv's commitment to peace, only 45 percent of Americans surveyed in July said they felt Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was committed to the Middle East peace process.

    Meanwhile, 39 percent responded that Netanyahu and his administration are not committed to seeking peace with the Palestinians.

    The finding is a serious challenge for the rightist Netanyahu as a late 2007 poll indicated that 66 percent of American respondents believed the Israeli administration, then led by his predecessor Ehud Olmert, was committed to peace.

    Your head line is miss leading. The poll ask if they supported Israel or believed Israel was sincere about peace. It did NOT ask if they disliked Israel.

    And no those are not the same things.
