Anti-Israel Rhetoric Masks Reality

To listen to all the anti-Israeli rhetoric on Paltalk - much of it out of the mouths of citizens of the United States - one would get the impression that Americans were really down on the Jewish state. But a new poll suggests that - while the loudest voices sometimes get the most attention - they represent a warped reality.

The poll finds that Americans list Israel as the fifth most favored nation in the world. That's fifth out of  193 states recognized by the United Nations. Vatican City is tossed into that list for good measure.

Which nations rate higher than Israel, you ask? Canada, Britain, Germany and Japan, according to the Gallup poll.
