JNS.org – Most of the lawmakers in the Israeli Knesset support relocating the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a new poll conducted by Israel Hayom revealed.

The data, collected ahead of President Donald Trump’s visit to Israel, showed that out of a representative sample of 21 Knesset members (MKs), 13 were in favor of the embassy move. Four MKs said they supported the embassy relocation, but only as part of a peace plan between Israel and the Palestinians.

Additionally, less than half (nine) of the 21 MKs polled said they believed Trump would keep his election campaign promises to move the embassy.
