A poll released Friday showed 65.6 percent of Israeli Jews would support an attack on Iran should the need arise, according to Israel Hayom.
When asked who is most qualified to serve as prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu was by far the most popular at 52.7 percent, the next highest was no opinion at 22.1 percent.
The poll comes after Netanyahu gave a speech at the United Nations saying Israel could stand alone against Iran and launch a unilateral attack against the country without international support.
Israel Hayom reports:
According to the poll, 65.6 percent would be in favor of such a move and 21.8 percent would oppose it. Some 12.5 percent had no opinion. This week Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the U.N. General Assembly that Israel would not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons, and that “if Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone.”
