A majority of Israeli support bombing Iran's nuclear facilities if Tehran cannot be deterred from developing nuclear weapons, a poll by a respected Israeli university found in numbers released Sunday.
The Hebrew University poll of Israelis and Palestinians found that 52 percent of Israelis say the country should bomb Iran's nuclear reactor. Just 35 percent say they are opposed, according to a CNN report.
But 43 percent of Palestinians said it would be good for Iran to have a nuclear weapon. Another 33 percent said it would be bad for the Arab world, according to corresponding work done of the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah.
The Hebrew University poll was released shortly before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel wants peace with its neighbors.
"We want to achieve peace with the Palestinians and with the countries of the Arab world, while attempting to reach maximum understanding with the United States and our friends around the world," Netanyahu said. "My aspiration is to achieve a stable peace that rests on a solid foundation of security for the state of Israel and its citizens."
