Why do Americans think they understand Israeli politics?
Everyone on Yahoo answers seems to have an opinion...but you people don't even know how our election works.
Retarded Trumpanzee Republicans are not really pro-Israel...they are a bunch of anti-semites looking for a reason to support Netanyahu's mistreatment of Muslims.
And Netanyahu isn't even popular over here. His approval rating is in the single digits!
Just stay out of our situation. Your retarded fascism is only making things more dangerous in Israel.

Right wingers LOVE oppressive governments.
That is why they love Trump administration. That is why they love Netanyaho administration.

Because your lobbies control American politicians and brainwash American people into believing they have to give a shyte about your little ethnostate when only about 3% of the American population is Jewish.
The average American can't find Israel on a map, but they're conditioned to have strong feelings towards it and will happily die for it.

Sometimes its hard for Israelis to understand Israeli politics.

Hello Anon / Anon,
I refer to the answer awarded so-called "best" which falsely-implies Israeli is "oppressive".
As the reader will be aware, it is the “Palestinian” Arabs who persistently and falsely-play the “victim-card” as part of their propaganda campaign. Palestinian propaganda is highly successful, comparable to that of Nazi Germany, asserting the Jews are the fake-cause of all Palestinian perceived issues.
> The Palestinians are no “victims”.
> Rather, the Palestinians are victim-makers.
The only form of “oppression” that really applies here, is the frustration that the Palestinians may encounter when Israeli security measures make it more inconvenient for the Palestinians to murder Israeli Jewish civilians (see below) whenever the fancy takes them.
When pro-Palestinians falsely-allege the Palestinians are “not free”, this is part of “Palestinian” Arab propaganda falsely-alleging Israeli “oppression” of the Palestinians. In reality the only form of “oppression” / the only manner in which the Palestinians are “not free” that could really apply, is frustration the Palestinians may encounter when Israeli security measures make it more inconvenient for the Palestinians to murder Israeli Jewish civilians whenever the fancy takes them (see below).
Palestinian propaganda false-complaints of:
“oppression”/ “(mis) treatment” / “racism” / “discrimination” / "persecution" / “2nd class, treated as”,
are actually Palestinian frustration at Israeli security measures for reducing Jewish casualties resulting from the Palestinian anti-Jewish war of ethnic-hatred, where the Palestinians target Israeli Jewish civilians as policy including children (see further below).
The Palestinian education system practices mind-abuse, teaching:
> Hatred of Jewish people,
> a false victim-mentality,
> that Israel does not exist (aka the Palestinian false-claim over ALL the land);
> and similar to the propaganda of Nazi Germany, that the Jew / Israel is the (fake) cause of all Palestinian alleged-issues:
The following are two examples where similar to the propaganda of Nazi Germany, the Jew / Israel is the fake-cause of all Palestinian alleged-issues:
The Palestinians have a problem of child sexual abuse, while deceiving the world it is all Israeli’s fault for causing Palestinians “stress” by Israel deploying an economic-blockade – a blockade due to Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel.
The Palestinians have a problem of domestic violence against women, while deceiving the world it is all Israeli’s fault for causing Palestinians “stress” by Israel deploying an economic-blockade – a blockade due to Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel.
Perhaps people may like to consider that a “victim” is not normally characterised by the following, as are the Palestinians:
> Run their own territories, from which they launch terrorist attacks and rockets (while falsely-complaining the resulting Israeli economic measures are “collective punishment”).
> Conduct a war of territorial-ambition and ethnic-hatred, targeting as policy civilians including children (no wonder then that anti-Semites feel such emotional-attachment to the Palestinians!);
> Convert their International Aid Money (your Tax Money by the way) into:
Rockets, weapons of all types, attack tunnels, corruption.
> Have poor infrastructure, with their available funds poured into their conflict-based economy, ignoring the welfare of their people.
Israel was Re-established in 1948 following a United Nations Partition Plan (two-state solution), accepted by the Jewish Community, but while the “Palestinian” Arab response was in 1947 to start a civil war and terror to oppose the U.N. Partition Plan, instead take ALL the land of Israel, and ethnically-cleanse or murder the Jewish population from the Jews ancestral homeland of Israel:
Palestinian propaganda falsely-alleges the Re-establishment of Israel caused: a “great injustice” / “nakba” (“catastrophe” / “disaster”) to the Palestinians.
> The Palestinians violently rejected the Arab state of the United Nations Partition Plan;
> Jordan and Egypt occupied the land proposed for an Arab state under the U.N. Partition Plan (approximating to the West Bank and Gaza);
> BOTH Arabs and Jews, became war-refugees;
> The Palestinians falsely-claim with no evidence of any such policy that they were expelled from the land; Jews were indeed expelled by the Arabs as policy. Palestinians live and work in Israel.
Therefore the reader is entitled to be sceptical about Palestinian propaganda falsely-alleging a fantasy-injustice.
The “”Palestinian” Arabs deceive the world into believing they seek a two-state solution, whereas in reality they falsely-claim ALL the land of Israel (to none of which do they have any verifiable-claim), and seek to expel or murder the Jews, from the Jews ancestral homeland of Israel. This is clearly shown by what is taught by the Palestinian education system (see above) and by the “Palestinian National Charter” - Those policies are therefore by definition, anti-Semitic.
The Palestinians have two territories (part of the West Bank and the whole of Gaza) (or Palestinian colonies on land of the former Jewish kingdoms of Judea / Israel) which the Palestinians run themselves with their own army and police.
The following is how the Palestinians obtained these territories:
In 1967 Israel gained control of the West Bank and Gaza Strip (from the previous Jordanian and Egyptian illegal-occupation respectively). Once the “Palestinian” Arabs had tricked Israel into giving them autonomy of part of the West Bank (40%) and the whole of Gaza under the Oslo Accords, the Palestinians since:
> Do not sincerely negotiate a peace treaty,
> make an unverifiable false-claim to ALL the land of Israel,
> attack Israeli Jewish civilians as policy including children (see below).
No wonder anti-Semites display such emotional-support for the Palestinians!

“The Palestinian Authority Martyrs Fund is a fund operated by the Palestinian Authority for the purpose of paying a monthly cash stipend to the families of Palestinians killed, injured or imprisoned for involvement in attacking, assisting in attacking, or planning to attack Israel ...”

The “Palestinian Authority Martyrs Fund” and “Hamas”, are both brought to you by “European Union” funding of the “Palestinian Authority”.
In deploying their propaganda-falsehoods against Israel, the Palestinians usually find they are “pushing at an open door”, many being Willing to believe them, while being Unwilling to verify if it is factual, due to anti-Semitism (about which they are often in denial).
Nor therefore do such people require any reasonable or proper moral standard from the “Palestinian” Arabs.
The Palestinians cynically whitewash their anti-Jewish hate-war as:
“uprising”, “defence”, “desperation”, “struggle”, “resistance”:
Here is an example result from the Palestinian on-going anti-Jewish hate-war:
Israeli girl, Hallel Yaffa Ariel, aged 13, fatally stabbed in her bedroom in West Bank by a Palestinian terrorist, June 30, 2016, The Guardian:
Brief historical background:
The Jewish People are the indigenous people of their ancestral homeland of Israel with unbroken presence there since Biblical times:
Map of Jewish Hasmonean Kingdom of Judah (aka Judea) including the West Bank, Gaza, and Golan Heights, with its capital of (what is now EAST) Jerusalem / “Old City”.
Between 110 BCE / 754 BH and 63 BCE / 706 BH:
From where did “Palestine” as a name imposed on the land of Israel, come?
The Romans imposed the term “Palæstina” (“Palestine”) on Roman-occupied Judea / Israel, resurrecting the term from the defunct much smaller region of “Philistia”.
The “Palestinian” Arabs have no connection with the ancient Philistines.
There has never been a sovereign state of “Palestine” upon which the “Palestinian” Arabs could base any claim to the land of Israel. Following the Ottoman Turkish defeat in the First World War, the League of Nations in 1921 resurrecting the name “Palestine” from Roman occupation, authorized a British Mandate, whose inhabitants were known as:
“Palestinian Jews” / “Palestinian Arabs”. An administrative region, NOT a sovereign state, it was an area that later would be today’s:
Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian Territories - Please compare the second and third maps down, at:
The prior Ottoman Turkish empire did not use any such political term as “Palestine”, but rather Ottoman-occupied Judea / Israel was within the Ottoman province of “Syria”:
The “Palestinian” Arabs may come from those who invaded and occupied the Jewish land of Judea / Israel. However, it is also unclear at what point they arrived there, since they were opposed to being called a “People” until the 1960’s, when they decided it fitted with their intention to steal the land from its indigenous Jews.
(Please see the source which I have put into the sources area of this answer.)
I hope this helps.

The media owned by them try to sell a pro-Israel image.
Deep down inside all Americans are hardcore Antisemetics which anything "anti" is a good thing.
American people are fair and square, the Jews are not. They are Orientals.

Your lies are so obvious...
Single digit approval as you say...but always ahead of the competition.
Netanyahu is the FIRST Israeli politician who stood American pressure and denied
Obama the second fake Nobel.
That's why most Israelis support personally Netanyahu, because he cares about lives of Israelis, more than he cares about his political future.

You clearly went anonymous for a reason; you're the recurring troll of this section just trying to stir up hatred. News flash: nobody cares and your little Y!A manipulations hold little effect in the larger real world.
US Republicans aren't antisemites any more than US Democrats. Most Americans aren't antisemites.
Netanyahu's popularity isn't in the single digits, but it is certainly not enough for him to form a coalition-free government.
Trump is popular in Israel.
Americans don't need to understand the Israeli electoral system in depth to have a meaningful overview of Israeli politics.
Who even says "Americans think they understand Israeli politics"? How many Americans? What was your sample size and methodology? What makes you think such hasty generalizations are acceptable?
Thank you for your contribution.

Unfortunately a lot of Americans apply a US-centric viewpoint on foreign nations and that's where a lot of confusion comes from. They understand Israel is a democracy but fail to understand that democracies aren't always cookie-cutter versions of their American interpretation. So, they form their opinions based on what little they've heard and what little they understand. What exacerbates the issue is when they come from echo chambers, where beliefs are amplified irregardless of whatever evidence exists for or against their stance. Misunderstanding the Israeli election process isn't a uniquely American phenomena - I've seen it from others worldwide - but as I'm American (with Israeli family, so better informed than most) I do see others talk about it and fail to truly get what's going on, especially from those who don't understand how Netanyahu keeps getting elected or what is the primary concern of the Israeli populace.
To be fair, you may not understand American society yourself. While a lot of Republicans and the specific Trumpsters do view Israel positively for anti-Muslim sentiment, I dare say their positive affinity for Israel is a bit more genuine as a whole. A lot of concern isn't off of bigotry for another, and is welcomed. There is concern for the Jews and it doesn't always have to be because of anything to do with extremist Islam. Furthermore, it's not like the opposing political sphere has a better understanding of Israeli politics, especially the far-left who doesn't bother to check their facts and just paints Israel as a demonic entity. I spend more time correcting those on the left when it comes to Israel, which doesn't bother me as a centrist but is noted nonetheless.
