An Israeli college has quietly conducted an opinion poll in Saudi Arabia, concluding that the Saudi public is far more concerned about the threats of Iran and ISIS than Israel, and that the vast majority of Saudis support a decade-old peace offer to the Jewish state.The poll found that 53 percent of Saudis named Iran as their main adversary, while 22 percent said it is ISIS and only 18 percent said Israel.The poll also showed that a majority of Saudis think their country should seek nuclear weapons if Iran acquires an atomic bomb. A whopping 85 percent also support the Saudi-led Arab Peace Initiative, which calls for peace with Israel in return for a full Israeli withdrawal to its pre-1967 borders.A quarter of the poll's respondents said Israel and Saudi Arabia should join forces to fight Iran together.Saudi Arabia was the driving force behind the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative, offering Israel a comprehensive peace with dozens of Arab and Muslim countries in exchange for a withdrawal from all territories captured in the 1967 Mideast war and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.
