VOTE at the Globe and Mail

from Joseph Norland at ISRAPUNDIT

The Toronto Globe and Mail has posted a poll, asking,
In order to spur parties to a peace settlement in the Middle East, would you:

Cut off aid to Israel ....................... (30%)
Cut off aid to the Palestinians ......... (19%)
Cut off aid to both .......................... (41%)
Continue the present course............ (10%)

At the moment, 10:00 am EST, there are 1,010 votes with the percentages I indicated in parentheses. Please vote! The poll is in the rt-hand column of the G&M.
The last G&M poll asked, "Should all financial and political aid to Israel be cut off until a just peace with the Palestinians is in place?" 62% answered YES.

UPDATE: HonestReporting is on the case
The Toronto Globe & Mail had the following poll question on the homepage of its website earlier today (Feb. 12):
Should all financial and political aid to Israel be cut off until a just peace with the Palestinians is in place?
After immediate protest from HonestReporting and other media monitors that the question itself contains blatant anti-Israel bias, the Globe & Mail changed the question to include the option of cutting off aid to Palestinians.

That's a far more reasonable proposal - a halt in PA funding is precisely what the EU's Anti-Fraud Office is presently considering, after evidence emerged that the PA has directly funneled EU 'political aid' funds to terror organizations.
