Poll: More Israelis Think Romney Would Be Friendlier Than Obama - You Bet ! Romney Is Pro Israel Unlike Obama!
Poll: More Israelis Think Romney Would Be Friendlier Than Obama
The fact that Israelis have conflicted attitudes toward US President Barack Obama came out loud and clear in a poll released on Thursday.
The survey — commissioned by the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, the Bar-Ilan University Center for International Communication and the Anti-Defamation League — found that while 51 percent of Israeli Jews believe Obama is “friendly” or “very friendly” toward Israel, more people think the expected Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, would better promote Israel’s interests.
When detailed questions were asked, a picture emerged of a public that has considerable questions about the president’s Middle East policies.
For instance, when asked whether Romney or Obama would better promote Israel’s interests, 29% said Romney and 22% said Obama. Perhaps most telling was that while Obama had been in office for more than three years, 49% said they did not know or would not answer the question.
Thirty percent of the respondents said US-Israeli ties would improve under a Romney presidency, 26% said they would remain the same and only 6% said they would get worse.
A slim three percentage points separated those who believe Obama when he says he is “steadfast on preventing Iran from having nuclear weapons and will use all means available to achieve this goal” (45%) and those who do not believe him (42%), with another 13% either unsure or not willing to respond.
A higher percentage (36%) said they believed Romney would work “more decisively and steadfastly than Obama against the Iranian nuclear weapons program” than those saying he would not (26%).

Obama hates Israel. I hope this time around those that are for Israel wake up and see how much Obama is NOT for the Jews or for Israel.
