Americans Support a Strike on Iran: Poll

Great news!  The U.S.-Israel relationship is crucial - and it's not just politicians who understand this, but everyday citizens.  This was the result of a very recent poll, as seen here. 

But the news gets better.  A new poll shows that a majority of Americans support a military strike on Iran.

This poll, AMERICAN ATTITUDES TOWARD ISRAEL, THE PALESTINIANS AND PROSPECTS FOR PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST, was taken by the ADL.  The results can be viewed here.

The ADL also included a convenient summary of the results:


By decisive numbers, Americans remain more sympathetic to Israel than to the Palestinians when thinking about the conflict in the Middle East. 
A majority of Americans remain skeptical about the prospects for peace between the Israelis and Palestinians. 
Americans continue to believe that Israel is very serious about wanting to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians.They are divided about Palestinian leaders’ seriousness about wanting to reach a peace agreement. 
Americans believe that the Israelis and the Palestinians must directly negotiate their own solutions.
American support for U.S. involvement in the peace process has decreased since 2009. They also reject the preconditions for resuming negotiations that the Palestinians have been demanding.

Ynetnews:

Some 63% of poll respondents characterized Israel as a "crucial ally" and said that the Jewish state's relationship with the US does not undermine America's image in the world.

As to Iran's development of nuclear weapons, the poll showed that 57% of Americans support Israeli military action to prevent such scenario while only 31% opposed such move. Some 50% of respondents supported US military action against Iran, while 44% expressed their objection to such strike.


Meanwhile, nearly half of all Americans said they sympathize with the State of Israel, while only 18% said they sympathize with the Palestinians. Some 63% of respondents said they believe Israel is serious about peace, while only 37% thought otherwise.


Overall, 73% of Americans said that the US can count on Israel as a strong ally.

This is a very good sign of the strong U.S.-Israel relationship!
