Surprise, Surprise: Israelis Have More Confidence in Obama Than Ever Before

Pew Research poll also shows Israel as staunchly pro-U.S. and most supportive of its use of drones and surveillance in the fight against terrorists.

The fact that Israelis are one of the most staunchly pro-American people in the world is not new. But that their confidence in Barack Obama’s ability to handle world affairs climbed dramatically in 2014 to reach an all-time high? That will surely surprise and confound both supporters and detractors of the U.S. president.
