A series of recent polls shows that ordinary Americans are more hawkish on Iran than the commentariat that fills the op-ed pages. 57% of American voters say Israel would be justified in attacking Iran's nuclear facilities given that Iran has publicly threatened to annihilate Israel, according to a McLaughlin poll conducted on May 8-9. 71% say the U.S. will not be safe with a nuclear Iran and 79% say it is likely that Iran will provide nuclear weapons to terrorists to attack an American city, according to a poll conducted on May 8-9. 80% say it is likely that Iran will launch a missile attack on Israel, 77% say it is likely that Iran will use the threat of nuclear attack to provide a shield for Hizbullah and Hamas terrorists to attack Israel, and 82% say the U.S. should be concerned about the security of Israel. In a Rasmussin poll reported on May 7, forty-nine percent (49%) of Americans say that if Israel launches an attack against Iran, the United States should help Israel.
