The Hidden Fraternity

New polling finds massive overlap between American Jews and Muslims on issues important to the two communities. Some highlights:

* 81% of Muslims and 78% of Jews support a two-state solution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

* Jews and Muslims are the only two religious groups currently supportive of Barack Obama.

* Jews are the group least likely (after Muslims) to question Muslim loyalty to the United States.

* Jews are actually slightly more likely than Muslims to believe that Muslims face significant prejudice in the United States.

Good news all around.

Why restrict the analysis to American Jews and Muslims? Consider the deeper commonalities: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_T4Wk9M2ObE
