Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on President Obama’s Remarks Regarding the Middle East

Thursday, May 19, 2011  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding President Barack Obama's speech on the Middle East:

"President Obama's speech today continues a misguided policy of alienating our traditional allies, in this case Israel, one of our strongest partners in the war on terror. As someone who has visited Israel numerous times, I know that it is impracticable to revert to the 1967 lines. President Obama is asking our Israeli friends to give up too much security and territory as a prelude to a renewed peace process."
