Pour 87% d'Israéliens la communauté juive américaine est vitale pour l'existence d'Israël

On le savait : les Américains aiment Israël et les Israéliens aiment l'Amérique.  Un sondage révèle que les Israéliens considèrent que la communauté juive américaine est vitale pour assurer la sécurité et l'existence politique d'Israël.

"The majority of Israelis believe that the US Jewish community is vital to their country’s security and political existence, a Teleseker poll carried out last week on behalf of the Israel and Boston-based Ruderman Family Foundation has revealed.

Carried out to coincide with the launch of the new Ruderman Fellowship Program, which aims to educate Knesset members about the intricacies of the organized Jewish community in the US, the poll saw an overwhelming 87 percent of respondents answering "very important" and "quite important" to the question: "How important is the American Jewish community to Israel’s security and political existence?"

In addition, the majority (73%) of the 500 adults questioned for the survey said they believed that Israelis could learn a lot from the religious pluralism practiced in the American Jewish community, even though streams of Judaism alternative to the orthodox are not officially recognized in Israel.

“I was surprised by the overwhelming nature of the results,” commented Jay Ruderman, President of the Ruderman Family Foundation, who met in the Knesset on Tuesday with the six MKs – Eitan Cabel and Daniel Ben Simon (Labor), Tzipi Hotovely and Carmel Shama (Likud), and Avi Dichter and Ronit Tirosh (Kadima) – set to travel to Boston and New York in early April.
