Three times as many urban Saudis favor Israeli strike on Iran as accept Israel as Jewish state

Asked about an Israeli military strike against Iran, one-quarter of urban Saudis said that they would support it at least "to some extent."

Interestingly, that figure is three times larger than the number of respondents who said that they would accept Israel "as a Jewish state," even "under the right conditions" -- a mere 9 percent of urban Saudis took that position. But regional differences are relatively significant here: in Jeddah, hypothetical acceptance of a Jewish state was 17 percent, compared to barely 4 percent in Riyadh or Dammam/al-Khobar.
