Most Israelis Trust Obama, Most PA Arabs Distrust Him

Obama Visit to Israel in March

Israelis by a 4-to-1 margin are more confident than Palestinians in how President Barack Obama a handles his foreign policy, according to a Pew Research Center poll released Thursday.

The survey revealed that 61 percent of Israelis “express confidence in the American president to do the right thing regarding world affairs,” as opposed to 15 percent of Palestinian Authority Arabs.

Obama’s numbers among Israelis are a 12 point increase over when the same question was asked in 2011, reflecting the consensus after the president’s visit to Israel in March. His speeches were viewed in  Jerusalem and Ramallah won broad support from Israelis and anger from the Palestinian Authority.

The president’s emphasis on Israel’s security needs and the Jewish connection to the region stood in stark opposition to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ continued refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

Asked to assess whether Obama should increase or decrease his role in peacemaking, or keep it at current levels, 49 percent of Israeli respondents wanted to see greater involvement, 29 percent the same level and 15 percent less involvement.

Among Palestinians, the numbers were 41 percent wanting greater involvement, 19 percent wanting the same and 26 percent wanting less.

  1. Here is a news flash, Obama is not an ally of Israel and to think otherwise is foolish. Obama is very good at rhetoric. But, Obama should not be judged by feel good speeches, he should be judged on his record and when it comes to Israel, Obama's record is sub par to say the least. Remember, this is a President who suggested Israel should return to the 67' borders. Obama has been disrespectful and rude to Netanyahu, who said there should be distance between Israel and the U.S., and it took five years in office for him to step foot within Israeli borders, while going to every Arab country around Israel several times, just to name a few examples of whose side Obama is on. In addition, Obama put in place people who are hostile to Israel such as Kerry and Hagel and ousting Mubarak who was keeping the peace with the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist group, and hater of Israel. The Palestinians have it right, don't trust Obama.
