Skip to comments.Poll: Israelis View Obama Favorably (Unbelievable)
Posted on 03/19/2010 12:47:28 PM PDT by OldDeckHand
(JERUSALEM) A poll released Friday shows that Israelis overwhelmingly have a favorable impression of President Barack Obama, despite a grave diplomatic feud with the U.S. over east Jerusalem construction.
Between a total of three polls released Friday, Israelis sent mixed signals about their own leader. Thirty-six percent of those questioned for one poll thought Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was best suited to lead Israel, versus 26% for his closest challenger, opposition leader Tzipi Livni. But another poll showed Livni's Kadima Party would overtake Netanyahu's Likud by a wider margin if elections were held today.

Time+Ap thats all you need to know about this POS!
“You can’t save people from their own stupidity.”
Or, if you pardon the redundancy, their own liberalism.
Apparently Jewish people have some sort of defective gene that makes them enjoy being kicked.
I ain't buying it!
I’ve been reading for days that Obama’s favorable rating is under 10% for Israel. Now how does this happen?
They polled the arab members of the knesset.
I ain't buying it!
I will have to temper my criticism of the lack of backbone in our own Jewish Americans.
Well apparently that naivete, stupidity, blindness is how they will be ripe for the plucking by the antichrist.
I might suggest you read the story, before posting. If you had, you'd see that neither Time, nor AP did the polling. They're just repeating Israeli press accounts
It said “Time”.
Are Time reporters idiots?
Does a bear take an Obama in the woods?
Would Al Gore flunk the most simple of HS science classes?
Is Dan Rather’s brain shrunk 50% (only one cell now)?
There are consequences for everything in life.
A whole lotta masochism going on there.
“Poll: Israelis View Obama Favorably (Unbelievable)”
Yes, but it is even more unbelievable that morons in the support Obama: The Destroyer of Nations.
Oh sure. We can trust time to take a fair and honest poll.
Sure we can!
Good thing everything in the world isn’t about PO__S Zero.
Most of the press media in Israel are simply re-prints of the NYT and WaPO. TV is mostly CNN International.
They are a stiff-necked people.
Ashkenazi Jews are very similar in their beliefs whether living in the U.S. or Israel.
Read the story. Time didn't do the polling. Good grief.
Reflexive posting without reading the story just might make you look like an idiot.
Possible. Mathews just called them racists. Works like a charm. “No really, I love the man, even if he gets me and my country wiped off the map”.
Who the hell is "Dialog"?
Sorry not buying it, check these Israeli polls out:
Below is the latest Haaretz poll of 449 “people” in Israel, read it carefully, it’s not good news at all for Obama, all spin, only 18% of respondents think Obama is “friendly” to Israel. What are TIME/AP thinking, we’re that stupid?
Me neither. TIME and AP, the 2 biggest Obama jock-sniffer propagandists on the planet? Yeah right.
There was a link between Marxism and ZIonism way back in the 19th century. People like Trotsky were Zionists. Israel was founded as a socialist state, complete with communes (kubbutzim). The Left turned its back on Israel when religious Jews began to migrate there.
Having said that, I also know there are more than a handful of self-hating Jews in the world. (Of course, that's not limited to Jews, but you know what I mean.)
This new poll is a push poll, meant not to estimate public opinion, but to mold public opinion toward the outcome of the poll takers and their fellow traveling sycophants.
Poll: Israel votes McCain in US elections
Survey finds 46% of Israelis would vote for Republican nominee if given chance to elect US president; Democrat Barack Obama receives 34% of votes. Almost half of those polled believe McCain would better impact Jewish state
Published: 10.27.08, 12:41 / Israel News
Israel chooses John McCain over Barack Obama in the US presidential elections, a survey conducted by the TNS Teleseker polling agency found.
The Republican nominee defeated his Democratic opponent by a margin of over 12% among the adult Jewish population in the State.
Larijani: Iran prefers Obama / AFP
Iranian parliament speaker says his country is leaning towards Democratic candidate in US presidential election ‘because he is more flexible and rational’
Ynet obtained the results of the poll, ordered by the Rabin Center for Israel Studies and conducted among 500 Israelis aged 18-65, in preparation for a special debate on the US elections and their repercussions on the country’s foreign policy in the Middle East, to take place Monday.
The survey found that given the right to vote in the US, 46.4% of Israelis would vote for the Republican nominee, John McCain. Thirty-four percent would vote for Democratic nominee Barack Obama, and 18.6% remain undecided.
Almost half of those polled (48.6%) believe McCain would better impact Israel, while 31.5% thought the country would better benefit from Obama’s leadership. Just over 5% believe the candidates would have the same effect on Israel, while 14.2% remain undecided.
Heck, they even seem to view the so-called palestinians fovorably.
This is astonishing.
I think Madame Secretary did a whole lot of harm to the the Dems' image over there in Israel.
This propoganda story from TIME confirms my view.
That is one of the exact same polls cited in the Time story.
The first line in the story you linked reads...
"Most Israelis regard US President Barack Obama as fair in his dealings with their country, despite a simmering diplomatic row between the two countries, according to a poll published on Friday in the Haaretz newspaper.
It’s spin, spin, spin, nothing more.
Did the Jews support Hitler in the early days? I have never researched the issue, but I am sure some here would know if they did and at what point they decided he might not be the best choice.
It’s horse hockey poll.
Obama is openly mocked and hated in Israel
Obamas attack out of proportion, Israeli polls say
By GIL HOFFMAN
Majority of Israelis also feel administration’s reaction harmed peace process.
Three-quarters of Israelis believe that US President Barack Obamas administrations attack on Israel for building in Jerusalem was disproportionate, according to two polls released Thursday.
The polls were taken after a week of headlines about outrage from top Obama administration officials about a low-level Interior Ministry planning committee announcing plans to build 1,600 housing units in Jerusalems Ramat Shlomo neighborhood during the visit of US Vice President Joe Biden.
A Maagar Mohot poll of 511 respondents, representing a statistical sample of the population, found that 75 percent of Israelis who expressed an opinion believed the Obama administration had overreacted, while 25% said it had not blown the issue out of proportion.
The poll, which has a margin of error of 4.5%, was sponsored by Dr. Aaron Lerners Independent Media Review Analysis organization.
A separate poll of 483 Israelis taken by Shvakim Panorama for Israel Radio found that 74% of Israelis believed the Obama administration had exaggerated in its response, while 17% believed its behavior was justified. The rest did not know or did not express an opinion. That poll also had a 4.5% margin of error.
The Maagar Mohot poll also asked whether the American administrations criticism of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahus government helped or harmed the peace process. Among those who gave an opinion, 63% said it harmed the peace process, 31% said it would have no impact, and just six percent said it would help.
The numbers were more stark among voters on the Left side of the political map. The view that Obama had harmed chances for peace was shared by 82% of Labor voters and 70% of people who voted Kadima.
When asked whether they were satisfied with the Obama administrations efforts to prevent Irans nuclearization, 67% of respondents said no, 9% said yes, and 24% said it was so-so. Only 1% of Israelis described themselves as very satisfied with Obamas handling of the Iranian situation.
Are you familiar with the three pollsters that are cited in the story? They are Maagar Mohot, Dahaf Research Institute and Dialog
Are they legitimate pollsters, or something else. And if not, what pollsters should be watching?
OK Israel picture this scenario. The Obama administration is blocking the sale of 300 plus bunker busting bombs you need to cripple Iran’s nuclear capability.
So lets just say Imawhackjob gets a nuke and missle and wants to bring back that missing Imam so he launches an attack on you guys.
You going to feel so favorable towards Obama then?
What if Bibi responds by sending your nuclear arsenal into all Arab countries? How will you feel then?
Oh,wait it wont matter will it? Armageddon will have happened.
Stuck on Stupid can have disasterous consequences as our nation will learn from the Obama election.
Not sure about Hitler, but they sure backed Stalin’s action. And he wasn’t a lot nicer to the Jews than was the Austrian paper hanger.
It very well may be, but this is the story that will get repeated on the three evening newscasts tonight.
18% is something to cheer about? That’s called desperate spin.
Dialog is actually “Haaretz-Dialog”
Haaretz is so far left and pro-arab it makes the NYT look like the National Review.
A joke T-shirt in Israel was “I Harretz (in shape of heart) Yasser Arafat”
It’s Haartz poll.
They have less connection with reality than Keith Olberfurer.
Just like a beaten wife.
Read the thread first. Poll has no connection with reality.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Why do you, or anyone, for that matter, assume that all the “Israelis” in this poll are Jews? Do you know how many arabs live in Israel? How many Christians live in Israel?
Good grief. Israel is NOT all Jews.
Polls done exclusively with JEWS, bam is running 4% favorable and even THAT is too much.
