The picture is more complex when denominational differences are taken into account.
• 56% of Orthodox Jews support the United States taking military action against Iran to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons, compared to 39% of Conservative Jews and 32% of Reform Jews.
• 56% of Orthodox Jews think the United States did the right thing in taking military action against Iraq, compared to 32% of Conservative Jews and 22% of Reform Jews.
• 31% of Orthodox Jews consider themselves Republicans, compared to 13% of Conservative Jews and 14% of Reform Jews.
Here’s one finding that showed a big disparity among the religious streams: Only 18% of Orthodox Jews favor the establishment of a Palestinian state in the current situation, whereas 51% of Conservative Jews and 61% of Reform Jews back the idea.
Still, despite the denominational gap, some questions registered much agreement among all three camps: 93% of Orthodox Jews agreed with the statement, “The goal of the Arabs is not the return of occupied territories but rather the destruction of Israel,” while 85% of Conservative Jews and 78% of Reform Jews also agreed.
