Poll follows recent reports regarding Netanyahu and Barak’s joint efforts to muster majority in the forum of eight senior ministers for a military strike.

Israelis are almost evenly split on whether Israel should attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, with 41 percent supporting such a strike and 39 percent opposed, a new Haaretz-Dialog poll has found. The remaining 20 percent said they were undecided.

The poll, which queried both Jewish and Arab respondents, also asked whether people trusted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak “on the Iranian issue.” Here the answer was more clear-cut, with 52 percent saying they did, compared to 37 percent who did not.
