WASHINGTON – Americans increasingly back the US aiding Israel militarily should it come under attack from Iran after a strike on Tehran’s nuclear facilities, according to a new poll by The Israel Project.

The survey, released on Wednesday, also shows American voters opposing unilateral UN recognition of a Palestinian state and continuing aid to the Egyptian government if it doesn’t honor its peace treaty with Israel.

The poll found that 71% of those surveyed this month say the US should come to Israel’s defense if, after an Israeli attack to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, Tehran fires on Israel. That number is significantly higher than the 61% who answered the same way in a 2011 TIP poll.

In contrast, 22% of those surveyed in November oppose such intervention, down from 33% last year.
