A new poll shows that the majority of Israeli Jews do not trust President Barack Obama to successfully handle Iran’s nuclear program.
Based off of the president’s recent handling of Syria, 65.3 percent said they did not believe President Obama would properly address Iran’s nuclear program. Only 17 percent of those polled by Israel Hayom said President Obama managed the Syrian crisis successfully.
Israel Hayom reports:
A plurality of Israeli Jews — 49.7% — said Obama’s decision to delay a military strike against Syria was wrong, while 32.8% said he made the right choice.
Poll respondents were asked who won the current round of events in Syria — Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Syrian President Bashar Assad or Israel. Putin came in first at 48.3%, followed by Assad (39.6%), Obama (8.8%) and Israel (5.1%). Some 18.3% responded “don’t know.”
On the question of who lost the round, 63.0% said Obama, followed by Israel (17.3%), Assad (8.7%) and Putin (3.3%). Some 20.6% responded “don’t know.”
