Most Jewish Israelis believe that Prime Minister Netanyahu’s address to Congress last week helped Israel, according to a recently released poll conducted by the Israeli Democracy Institute.

The poll, concluded close to the time of the Prime Minister’s speech to Congress, revealed that a majority of the Jewish population in Israel is convinced that the address will help Israel, and believes that the primary motivation for his speech was Netanyahu’s belief that it might change the American position regarding the desired outcome of negotiations with Iran, Israel’s NRG reported.

The poll also queried Israelis about who they believed was responsible for the recent deterioration in Israeli-American governmental relations, and revealed a significant gap in responses between right-wing and left-wing voters. 60% of self-identified right-wing voters blamed the Obama Administration for the deterioration in relations, whereas 80% of those who defined themselves as left-leaning believed that Netanyahu was responsible for the tensions.

The poll also revealed that the events of the last few weeks had little to no effect on the public’s feelings about the post-elections coalition, and 61% of the Jewish sector believed that the right had better chances of forming a government.

    All right wing parties in Israel should join together,
    and not fight one another in order to defeat the left
    wingers.

    And they are Absolutely right!….and Tom Cotton has got the monkey off your back.

  • Imagine Iran with nuclear capability and some terrorists getting a hold off a backpack with a nuclear device or dirty bomb and detonating it in the middle of Times Square in New York or any other congested area with hundreds of thousands in casualties. Do you think the American people will tolerate such a potential threat.
    I think 9-11 has shown to the American people that threats and weapons of mass destruction in the possession of terrorists is a national threat to America and the rest of the free world.
    It is time for the free world to take the gloves off and treat the threat with utmost force and cleanse the terrorists and its sponsors from existence.
