ABSTRACT
The article discusses the standpoint of the American Jews concerning the U.S. policies for Israel's peace process. It states that the American Jews are found to be more on the political spectrum's right side than what is often believed on the issues like settlements, Jerusalem's future, and basic Arab goals. It adds that the more importance American Jews credit to their Jewishness, the more they stand on the right.
