The Trump administration on Monday celebrated moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the capital city of Jerusalem. But ever since the move was announced in December, it has been condemned in the Middle East and around the world. The Arab League called the embassy relocation a blatant attack on the feelings of Arabs and Muslims and a grave violation of the rules of international law that could destabilize the region. British Prime Minister Theresa May said, We disagree with the U.S. decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem and recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital before a final status agreement. Meanwhile, at the Gaza border, tens of thousands of Palestinians protested the embassy moveand Israeli fire killed dozens of them and wounded hundreds.
Americans, for their part, are divided on President Donald Trumps approach to U.S.-Israeli relations. But theres at least one group outside the United States that overwhelmingly supports the embassy move, according to a new University of Maryland poll: Jewish Israelis. Overall, 73 percent of them support moving the embassy, including the timing of it.
Perhaps it doesnt seem surprising that Israeli Jews would agree on this matter. But in fact, they are a group deeply divided on many domestic and foreign policy issues, including the path forward on Palestinian relations. And since Jerusalem has both religious and political significance, one would expect variations across the religious/secular divide within Judaism. On the embassy issue, however, Jewish Israelis seem to have banded together to support Trumps moveto the point that they also strongly support the U.S. president himself, in contrast with most Americans and indeed most people around the world, who hold unfavorable views of Trump....
