New Poll Shows 83% of Israelis Think Donald Trump will be a ‘Pro-Israel President’ Featured

Ruderman Family Foundation releases new poll that finds vast majority of Israelis see Trump as Pro-Israel, although 48% think there is no chance he can lead to a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians

Jerusalem — A new poll conducted by the Ruderman Family Foundation found that an overwhelming 83% of Israelis envision President-elect Donald Trump as a ‘Pro-Israel president’.

The study polled 500 Israelis that when asked if President-elect Trump would be a Pro-Israel president, 83% responded with a yes, while 17% thought otherwise.

The poll, conducted by Dialog, asked Israelis a number of questions surrounding their views on the recent US Presidential election, its impact on Israel and if the anti-Semitic events that have occurred in the US since the election are troubling. The poll also revealed that 42% of those surveyed think there is ‘no chance’ that Trump will scrap the Iran Nuclear Agreement, only 3% think the President-elect will undoubtedly execute on his promise to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem; and 48% are concerned about the increase in anti-Semitic incidents which were reported in the US since the Trump victory on November 8.

"Our poll of Israelis regarding the new U.S. administration and its impending impact on Israel and American Jewry shows that Israelis are optimistic that President-elect Trump will be a friend of Israel while at the same time they are concerned about the growing incidents of anti Semitism in the United States and its impact on the American Jewish community,” said Jay Ruderman, President of the Ruderman Family Foundation, which focuses on strengthening the relationship between Israel and the American Jewish community. “Israelis have faith in a strong relationship between the United States and Israel, but are worried about the new reality for their fellow Jews in America.”

This will be the topic of conversation at the Knesset Caucus for Israel-US Relations, in partnership with the Ruderman Family Foundation, today, December 5, at 10:00 am that will discuss the American Jewish community in the new era of a Donald Trump administration. The gathering will host Jonathan Greenblatt, President of the ADL, Jane Eisner, Editor in Chief of the Forward; Gil Troy, Professor at McGill University and the Ruderman Program for American Jewish Studies at the University of Haifa; and Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY 1st District) via video to discuss the implications for the American Jewish community and what it can look to over the next four years.
