Only 12% of Americans think Israel is a top foreign policy partner, according to a Pew study released earlier this month.

According to the poll, 37% of Americans believe the UK would be the most valuable partner and after that China (26%), followed by Canada with 25%.

However, more Republicans seem to believe Israel is a key partner, with 25% in comparison to 5% of Democrats.

Germans were also asked which country they view as the most important foreign policy partner. No significant number mentioned Israel. Most Germans viewed France as that partner (61%).


Some 1,006 adults, 18 years old and older, were interviewed for the US survey.

The survey conducted on Germans was done in conjunction with Koerber Stiftung, a political NGO.
