Funny Ativan

2時ごろにAtivan を飲んだ。3時すぎには眠ったようだったが、4時半、5時半と繰り返して目が覚め、しっかり眠れないので、さっき起きることにした。

From The Economist, August 5th 2006

… A USA Today/Gallup poll conducted on July 28th-30th showed that eight in ten Americans believed that Israel’s action was justified – though a majority were worried about the scale of action…  An earlier USA Today poll found that 53% put “a great deal” of the blame for the current crisis on Hizbullah, 39% on Iran and only 15% on Israel.

… A Pew Global Attitudes survey taken between March and May found that 48% of Americans said that their sympathies lay with the Israelis; only 13% were sympathetic towards the Palestinians.  By contrast, in Spain for example, 9% sympathised with the Israelis and 32% with the Palestinians.

… Two in five Americans believe that Israel was given to the Jewish people by God, and one in three say that the creation of the state of Israel was a step towards the Second Coming.
