Poll: Most Israelis consider Trump ‘pro-Israel’

A new poll finds that 83% of Israelis surveyed believe President-elect Donald Trump will be “pro-Israel.”

The survey commissioned by the Ruderman Family Foundation and conducted by Dialog found that 3% of respondents think Trump will “undoubtedly execute” his promise to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, and 48% are concerned about the rise in anti-Semitic incidents since his November 8 victory in the elections.

“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,” Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation, said in a statement.
