President Barack HUSSEIN Obama may hate Israel, but average Americans do not share his hostility toward the Jewish nation. In fact, the longer we experience an Obama nation, the more support for Israel grows.
Read from Israel Matzav:
60% of likely US voters see Israel as an ally
"Well, here's some good news.
'A national survey of 1,000 likely voters conducted August 9-10 asked: “Generally speaking, is Israel an ally of the U.S., an enemy of the U.S. or somewhere in-between?”
Responses: 60% ally, 4% enemy, 31% somewhere in between, 6% not sure.'
I'd love to see a comparison between Israel and other countries on that question.
There's a second question to that survey and unfortunately it shows a fear of what President Obama may yet try to do to Israel.
'2* A year from now will America’s relationship with Israel be better than it is today, worse than it is today or about the same?
45% About the same
12% Not sure'
Ouch. That's an awfully high percentage of 'worse' and it shows a lack of trust for Obama among Israel's supporters."
While Obama practically ignores the threat Iran poses to both Israel and the United States, the majority of Americans support aiding Israel in a military strike against Iran.

US: 51% say help Israel if it attacks Iran
"A newly released Rasmussen survey finds that 51% of Americans favor aiding Israel in the event that it decides to attack Iran.
'Iran’s first nuclear plant is expected to go online within the next few days, and some speculate that Israel will take military action to prevent it. Fifty-one percent (51%) of U.S. voters believe the United States should help Israel if it attacks Iran.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 35% say the United States should do nothing in the event of an Israeli attack on Iran, and two percent (2%) think America should help the Iranians.
Support for helping Israel is up nine points from two years ago when just 42% believed the United States should help the Jewish state if it launched an attack on Iran.
Despite Iran’s claims that the nuclear facility is intended for energy production, 66% of voters in this country think the purpose of Iran’s nuclear program is to develop weapons. Just seven percent (7%) say its purpose is the development of energy. But a sizable number (27%) are not sure.
Eighty percent (80%) say it is at least somewhat likely that Iran will develop nuclear weapons soon, with 53% who believe it is Very Likely. Only 10% say Iran is not very or not at likely to develop such weapons in the near future.
Americans have expressed a similarly high level of concern about Iran’s nuclear weapons development for several years.'
Yet another issue where Obama disagrees with the majority of Americans.
What could go wrong?"
