A few weeks ago, we sent you a survey asking you to give us your reasons for supporting Israel. Here’s just a bit of what we found out:

  1. Of the thousands of responses, a great majority — over 93 percent — included “God gave the land of Israel to the Jewish people” among their reasons for supporting the Jewish state
  1. Many cited other biblical considerations, including God’s covenant with Abraham (90 percent) and New Testament scripture that refers to Judaism as the “root” of Christianity (79.2 percent)
  1. Political and strategic factors were important to you as well, including “Israel is the United States’ strongest ally” (43 percent), “Israel is the Middle East’s only democracy” (41.7 percent) and “Israel is the frontline of the war on terror” (41 percent)
