Last week Obama told Channel 2 news in an exclusive interview that he's not coming with a grand peace plan but to "listen" to both sides. The Iranian's nuclear ambitions will also come up in talks among leaders.

According to a survey recently conducted by the Israel Democracy Institute, 36.5 percent of Jews in Israel view Obama as friendly toward their country, compared with 29 percent last year.

In addition, the poll found that while 51 percent of the Jewish respondents see the president's attitude toward Israel as neutral, 10 percent view him as hostile to the Jewish state and its leaders.
