In 1945, American president Harry Truman decided to support Jewish
immigration into Palestine, against the State Department's
recommendations.  He reasoned that he needed the Jewish vote, whereas
the Arab vote was not significant in American elections.[1]  Thus one
side in the conflict had effective proxies in the American electoral
system, while the other side didn't.
