The talk of the possibility of an Israeli raid on Iran's nuclear setup is growing, and in its wake, there's been a poll showing that Israel has the American public's backing
Most Americans support an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear sites, while a smaller majority endorses such US strike, according to a poll commissioned by the Anti-Defamation League.
Some 63% of poll respondents characterized Israel as a "crucial ally" and said that the Jewish state's relationship with the US does not undermine America's image in the world.
As to Iran's development of nuclear weapons, the poll showed that 57% of Americans support Israeli military action to prevent such scenario while only 31% opposed such move. Some 50% of respondents supported US military action against Iran, while 44% expressed their objection to such strike.
Meanwhile, nearly half of all Americans said they sympathize with the State of Israel, while only 18% said they sympathize with the Palestinians. Some 63% of respondents said they believe Israel is serious about peace, while only 37% thought otherwise.
Iran's nuclear development is still a serious threat, and the sooner it can be stopped, the better.
