Most Israelis Support an Attack Against Iran

According to the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, most Israelis feel that there is no way to halt Iran’s nuclear program short of a military attack. 65% of the respondents feel that living under the threat of a nuclear Iran would be far worse than the price Israel will have to pay by launching a military operation against Tehran’s nuclear program.

80% of the respondents believe the US military can effectively strike Iran’s nuclear program, and the trust among residents in the IDF’s abilities is also high. 66% believe in the IDF and its abilities to strike the nuclear facilities as well.

62% of respondents believe that if the United States launches the military strike instead of Israel, the price paid by Israelis would be lower.

The poll was conducted by Dr. Kamil Fuchs involving 505 people representing a cross section of the adult Jewish population of the country.

Dr. Dore Gold, a former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations serves as president of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. He also served as a senior advisor to Prime Ministers Ariel Sharon and Binyamin Netanyahu in his first term.

Gold, a former American, was born in 1953 in the USA. He earned a BA and MA from Columbia University in Political Science and a PhD in Political Science and Middle Eastern Studies from Columbia as well.
