Gallup Votes for Bibi – Elliott Abrams (Weekly Standard)
On March 3, 2015, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to the U.S. Congress to blast the nuclear deal with Iran.
Netanyahu’s critics claimed that his speech was a huge mistake that reduced support for Israel.
The recent Gallup poll shows an increase in support for Israel from 49 to 53% in the last year – the year in which Netanyahu’s supposedly damaging speech was made.
The writer, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, was a U.S. deputy national security advisor.
