JNS.org – A large plurality of Israelis back Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s stance on the Iranian nuclear issue compared to the more conciliatory approaches of US President Barack Obama and Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog, a new Israel Hayom-New Wave Research Institute poll found.

Asked whom they trust more to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat, 41 percents of respondents chose Netanyahu, while 15 percent chose Obama and only 6 percent chose Herzog.

Forty-six percent of those polled said Netanyahu’s address to Congress about Iran was the right move, while 39 percent thought it was a mistake. The poll was conducted from March 3-4 among a random sample of 500 Hebrew-speaking Israeli Jews ages 18 and over.

  • A nuclear-armed Iran puts the whole world in danger.
    Nuclear-armed jihadi terrorists are the greatest threat our civilization may ever face.

    Bibi’s address to a joint session of the US Congress this week 3.3.2015 was appropriate and necessary. There are some who have ears but they do not hear and eyes but could not see. Such people said and asserted that Bibi said “nothing new”. There is an adage which says “a dog that is destined to get lost will not hear the hunter’s whistle”. Majority of Americans heard the whistle, loud and clear on Tuesday, when Benjamin Netanyahu delivered his speech about terrorist Iran’s acquiring nuclear capabilities is a threat to the world at large.
    We must learn to face reality and not delude ourselves to wishful thinking.
    Iran the destabilizing factor in the Middle East and beyond..
    The PM stated the greatest dangers facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons.”
    A nuclear-armed Iran puts the whole world in danger.
    Nuclear-armed jihadi terrorists are the greatest threat our civilization may ever face.
    Radical Islam is not just a threat to American and Israel. It is a threat to Western Civilization everywhere. Unless the West wakes up now before it’s too late and stops this evil.

      Sorry to burst your bubble, but nuclear armed Israel is the real problem. Talk about hypocrisy. If you want to know the truth, the arms race has been triggered by Israel and not Iran.
