Iran Not a Priority For Most Israeli Voters

11 Jan

recent poll by the Times of Israel showed that the Iranian threat is viewed by only 12% of likely Israeli voters as an urgent issue, whereas 43% of likely voters viewed economic problems as the most pressing issue.

My latest article for Al Monitor explains the reasons behind this phenomenon.

    Meir, as usual you are 100% spot on. I went to the Uni of Oklahoma and met several Iranian students, a minority of whom were even Jewish! I enjoyed the culture, the food, learning lots of words in Farsi. The little people just want to get along. We just want to live a good life, provide for our families and live in peace. Of course we are more focused on domestic/economic issues at home! Shabbat Shalom, Meir and keep up the good work. BTW, when are you going to write something that I will grossly disagree with?:)
