Poll: Israelis eyes nuclear-free Middle East


22:16, December 01, 2011

JERUSALEM, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- A majority of Israelis support a nuclear-free Middle East, according to a just-released survey by The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The poll, conducted by the university's Saban Center for Middle East Policy, showed that 65 percent of Israeli Jews support a nuclear-free Middle East, while 19 percent said they would like both Israel and Iran to have nukes.

It also indicated that a narrow majority of Israel's Jewish public would support a military strike in Iran, with 43 percent saying they support an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, and 41 percent opposing using military force.

When asked about the same issue, however, Israel's Arab population strongly opposed a military strike, with 68 percent against it and only four percent supporting the idea.

An overwhelming majority of Israeli Jews - 90 percent - believed Iran is working toward developing nuclear weapons, while only 40 percent of Israeli Arabs thought so.
