An overwhelming majority of Israelis would support America leading an international consortium of air forces in a military strike on Iran if sanctions and diplomatic talks do not work, according to a Smith Research poll sponsored by The Jerusalem Post.

The results of the poll were announced by Post editor-in-chief Steve Linde at the Jerusalem Post Conference Sunday in New York. The poll of 500 respondents representing a statistical sample of the adult population in Israel was taken last week and had a had a 4.5 percent margin of error.



The poll found that 72% would back an international strike, while just 14% would oppose it, and 14% did not express an opinion.
