Majority Of Israelis Oppose Iran Strike, Poll Finds

March 1, 2012

JERUSALEM (JTA) -- A majority of Israelis oppose a strike on Iran or favor such a strike only if it has American backing, according to a new survey.

Some 34 percent of those surveyed said they were against an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities; another 42 percent favored an attack that had U.S. backing. Another 19 percent favor an attack even without backing from the United States.

1. Good to know.

It appears the RW hawks in both countries are pushing for this, but the majority isn't buying it. I wonder if those 42% are pro-bombing, but want their #1 protector leading the charge or do they distrust their present government to be honest about the situation and that a US willingness to join in would indicate the threat is on the level?
