Ann, I think Perry has shown on multiple occasions that he is a very strong supporter of Israel. If you google this you will find loads of lefty and paleo (Ron-Paul-ish included) writers excoriating him for exactly this reason. And here is a typical Perry declaration about Israel: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2011/05/gov-rick-perry-releases-statement-on-obamas-misguided-pro-hamas-mideast-policy/

Thank you Michael! I dug this up too from BtB archives (2005): the TX Treasury purchased new State of Israel bonds (and renewed others). This is called putting your money where your mouth is. http://bokertov.typepad.com/btb/2005/02/dont_mess_with_.html

Thank you Michael. I liked Perry's statement, liked that it was issued the same day as Obama's May 19 speech, liked that it was concise but managed to carry a lot of information within it, and like that he has been to Israel more times than the current president, who has yet to visit during his term of office.
