An interesting result from the latest WSJ poll:

Q36 As you may know, Israeli troops recently intercepted some ships carrying supplies to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, and nine people on board one of the supply ships were killed by Israeli soldiers. Which of the following statements comes closer to your point of view on this situation? If you don’t know enough about the situation to have an opinion, just say so. (ROTATE STATEMENTS)

Statement A: Israel was defending its interests in Gaza and their military actions were justified.

Statement B: Israel went too far and their military actions were NOT justified. 6/10**

Statement A: Defending interests/military actions were justified .............. 34

Statement B: Too far/military actions were NOT justified ......................... 29

Don’t know enough .................................................................................. 32

A little of both (VOL) ............................................................................... 1

Not sure ................................................................................................. 4

So the American public is basically divided three ways. How many ways do you think the US Congress is divided? Like you need to ask. And it's worth noting that the American public can come to this kind of judgment while, in the same poll, overwhelmingly supporting Israel rather than its Arab neighbors by 6 - 1.
