Less than half of Gen Z voters (18-24 years old) believe Israel’s campaign against Hamas is just, and one-third believe Israel has no right to exist, according to a new survey.

The national poll, conducted by Summit.org in partnership with RMG Research, queried 1,497 registered voters nationwide, including 495 18–24-year-old. It was conducted March 20-21.

“We are now seeing the logical outcome of an education system that teaches students to see the world through a lens of racialist resentment,” said Dr. Jeff Myers, president of Summit Ministries. “Gen Z is so embarrassed about being American that a large swath of them have become terrorist sympathizers,” he said.

“Gen Z is three times as likely as the general population to deny Israel’s right to exist. Sympathy for Hamas has grown. This should be a massive wake-up call to parents, educators, and cultural leaders—we now have a generation primed to accept without question the propaganda of those who wish to overturn Judeo-Christian civilization.”

One key insight is that Gen Z voters are less likely to believe Hamas is a terrorist group.

  • 81 percent of American voters overall agree with the U.S. government classifying Hamas as a terrorist group.
  • 61 percent of voters 18-24 years old agree with the U.S. government classifying Hamas as a terrorist group.

While most Americans support Israel’s battle against Hamas, Gen Z is more likely to believe Israel’s wealth and military power make its campaign against Hamas unjust.

  • 58 percent of American voters overall believe Israel’s campaign against Hamas is just, while 21 percent believe that Israel having greater wealth and military power makes its military campaign against Hamas unjust.
  • 42 percent of voters 18-24 years old believe Israel’s campaign against Hamas is just, while 47 percent believe that Israel having greater wealth and military power makes its military campaign against Hamas unjust.

One of the startling findings is that one-third of Gen Z believe Israel does not have a right to exist as a nation.

  • 10 percent of voters overall believe that Israel does not have a right to exist as a nation in the Middle East, while 77 percent believe Israel does have a right to exist as a nation in the Middle East.
  • 33 percent of voters 18-24 years old believe that Israel does not have a right to exist as a nation in the Middle East, while 56 percent believe Israel does have a right to exist as a nation in the Middle East.

  1. Dear Mark,
    Thanks for this update, Mark!
    Don’t write me off as a leftist or as an antisemite, but the report made me rejoice. It means that a Church worldwide is caring more for theological convictions and prophecies to be fulfilled than for people living in this world. I have lived for 54 years in the Middle East and I can tell you about all the wars that have been forced upon us. Now your young people have started telling you that Jesus was and still is with the downtrodden and the suffering. For centuries the Church did not do anything for the Jews. The Church still doesn’t care for them, and it was clear in Rev. Billy Graham’s private talk with President Richard Nixon. Scary to know that well educated people say such things about millions of people.
    Mark, until today the Church doesn’t love neither the Jews nor the Arabs. The Church is only interested in seeing prophecy being fulfilled!
    Jesus keeps on crying as His people don’t follow His first commandment: “Do to others what you want them to do to you!” Jesus would never ever sign his name on a missile to kill people and He would not fight for a piece of land. His interest is the same today as when He died on the Cross: “PEOPLE” and they are so important to Him. Read His Words and you will realise that He wants us to love people and lay down our lives for them. “The blood of your brother is crying out to you from the killing fields of the Middle East.” Soon more blood than water!
