70% of Israelis want Palestinian statehood: poll

This week, Israel's lawyer Barack Obama made the case before the United Nations that the UN should not recognize Palestinian statehood and that negotiations should allowed to drag on for however long the Netanyahu government wishes to stall. This is the same United Nations that, in 1947, recognized Israeli statehood.

However, an interesting poll was conducted by the Hebrew University and published in the Israeli daily The Jerusalem Post: 70% of Israelis say their government should accept the UN decision on the question, even if it results in Palestinian independence.

That's 70% of Israelis. So whose interests is lawyer Obama representing: the Israeli government's or the Israeli people's?
