Poll: 70% of Americans see Israel as U.S. friend – Haaretz – Israel News

More than two-third of Americans regard Israel as an ally despite recent diplomatic tensions, a nationwide survey conducted by the U.S. polling firm Rasmussen Reports has revealed.

The 70 percent who view Israel as America’s friend marks twice the number of respondents who view Egypt as an ally, though that Middle Eastern country has been polled as the most highly regarded Islamic country among Americans.

According to the poll, 81 percent of U.S. voters agree that Palestine Authority leaders must recognize Israel’s right to exist as part of any future Middle Eastern peace agreement.
