Gov. Perry Sends Letter of Support to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu

Tuesday, November 20, 2012  •  Austin, Texas  •  Noteworthy

Dear Prime Minister Netanyahu:

I am deeply saddened to see the State of Israel is once again under siege by Hamas forces firing rockets and mortars into your sovereign territory, leading to mounting bloodshed on both sides.

Please know that I stand with Israel as you rightfully defend yourselves from these outrageous terrorist attacks on not only the property but also the very lives of innocent Israelis that now reach as far north as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

I call upon the government of the United States to rally the international community in defense of Israel, and I pray that all Palestinians in Gaza who truly desire peace will reject the malignant forces bombarding your people.


Rick Perry
