Poll: Only 12 percent of Israelis believe Obama supports Israel
Only 12 percent of Israelis believe U.S. President Barack Obama's policies are supportive of Israel, according to a poll released on Thursday.
The poll was conducted jointly by the Ramallah-based Palestinian Center for Police and Survey Research and the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It was conducted between August 9 and 15.
The poll also found that 64 per cent of Palestinians still feel Obama's policy is more supportive of Israel, while 40 per cent of Israelis think it is more support of the Palestinians.
Oh, it's just a poll... or is it?
The poll's margin of error was 3 per cent.
According to the poll, a majority of Israelis were unhappy with the results of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah conference which ended Saturday, according to a joint Palestinian-Israeli poll published Thursday.
So it could be that "only" 85% of Israelis believe their ears and eyes. On the other hand, it is possible that just 9% of Israelis cannot absorb reality very well.

Partial Freeze On Israeli Settlements Reason To Be Optimisitc
Can't wait to block Jews from Jerusalem can't they? They're pissing their trousers with excitment at the prospect of 'right of return' unleashing 11 million Arabs into Israeli cities... peace now!
Oh, didn't you hear? Former head of IDF, and current minister of nothing said that 'peace now' is worse than a virus.
There's plenty of evidence to back that statement up. Still, media urge PM to scold him.
