American Jews and Non-Jews: Comparative Opinions on the Palestinian Uprising

By Eytan Gilboa

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), Spring 1990

The author compares the attitudes of American Jews and non-Jews toward the Palestinian uprising and fundamental Arab-Israeli issues. He finds that during the uprising American Jews remained much more supportive of Israel than non-Jews, a phenomenon he attributes to a solid Jewish "ethnic attitude structure" regarding Israel.
