A series of recent polls has shown that more Americans than Israelis support an Israeli military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
According to a Knesset Channel poll to be released Thursday, 50 percent of Israelis believe the IDF should not attack Iranian nuclear reactors, even if diplomatic attempts to solve the problem fail. Only 43% support such a strike.
A Reuters/Ipsos polled released on Tuesday, however, showed that 62% of Americans would back Israel taking military action against Iran if there were evidence that Tehran is building nuclear weapons.
A majority, 56%, would also support US military action against Iran, even if it led to higher gasoline prices, while 39% opposed.
