Israel’s GENOCIDE in Gaza leads to rising global pro-Palestine sentiment
By Arsenio Toledo // Dec 04, 2023

Israel's massively violent campaign against Palestinian civilians in Gaza has led to an outpouring of support for Palestinian freedom around the world, including in the United States.

In less than two months of indiscriminate land, sea and air bombing, not to mention a currently paused ground invasion of northern Gaza and proposals for an offensive into southern Gaza, Israel has killed more than 15,000 Palestinians. Most of these deaths are women and children. (Related: Former Israeli gov't minister claims final solution for Gaza is FORCED EXPULSION of all 2M Palestinians.)

This onslaught of violence led to a massive backlash that Israel did not expect. Hundreds of thousands of protesters all over the world, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, marched and demonstrated and held boycotts and other protest actions against the brutality of Israel's campaign supposedly only against Hamas and Tel Aviv's refusal to respect international law governing the rights of civilians caught in warzones.

Politically, countries like Saudi Arabia that were moving toward normalizing relations with Israel are now thinking twice before doing so. Economically, boycotts have had a severe economic effect on outwardly pro-Israeli companies, especially in the Middle East and in Islamic Southeast Asia. Branches of chains targeted by boycotts have reportedly been deserted, and people are flocking to alternatives to products provided by pro-Israeli manufacturers.

"Mass pro-Palestinian protests, calls to boycott companies over their ties to Israel, and more, are generating political shifts in Arab countries and the West," writes academic Mohammed Sinan Siyech. "It is clear that the current hostilities have brought large numbers of people across the world around to supporting the Palestinian cause and the end of Israeli occupation, even if the leaders of their countries have been slow to respond."

Support for Palestine in America increasing

This clear rise in support for Palestinian freedom is most apparent in the U.S., perhaps Israel's staunchest ally, where unconditional support for Israel is decreasing at the same time.

In one major poll released by Quinnipiac University in mid-November, the number of prospective voters who sympathized with Palestinians increased by double digits compared to a similar Quinnipiac survey held right after the current conflict between Israel and Hamas broke out, from 13 percent to 24 percent.

Most voters – 54 percent – are still more sympathetic toward Israelis than toward Palestinians, but the decrease from 61 percent in the previous survey shows that Israel's indiscriminate violence against Palestinians in Gaza is having an effect.

Young voters, aged 18 to 34, were much more likely to be more sympathetic to the Palestinians, with 52 percent saying their sympathies lie more with Palestinians and 29 percent with the Israelis. Voters over the age of 65 were 65 percent more likely to say that their sympathies lie more with Israelis than with Palestinians.

In another poll conducted by Reuter and Ipsos, a vast majority of Americans – 68 percent – believe Israel should call for a long-term ceasefire and negotiate with Gazans. This is clearly represented in the thousands of pro-Palestinian demonstrators that have gathered all over the U.S. demanding a ceasefire and an end to unconditional American aid to Israel.
