Texas Gov. Rick Perry has been to Israel more than any other presidential candidate and he believes he's on a mission from God.

 

In his 11 years in office he also wrested much power away from that states Legislature.

 

This citizen of conscience for US House of Representatives has been to Israel seven times since 2005, but I spent my time in occupied Palestine, on my mission from God: seek truth and report it!

 

When Perry led a delegation to Israel in 2009, he told The Jerusalem Post , the alliance was a natural one, "When I was here for the first time some 18 years ago and I was touring the country, the comparison between Masada and the Alamo was not lost on me. I mean, we're talking about two groups of people who were willing to give up their lives for freedom and liberty." [1]

 

Denial is safe harbor for those who cannot bear the light of truth, and only the blind miss the glaring similarities of what European colonists did to the Native Americans and what Israel has done to the indigenous Palestinians.  

 

Perry's recent opine piece for The Jerusalem Post, "The Palestinians' illegitimate UN gambit" follows with my corrections to this presidential candidates misunderstandings.  

 

PERRY: "Our nations have developed vital economic and security relationships in an alliance based on shared democratic principles, deep cultural ties and common strategic interests." [2]

 

On May 28, 1993 Ariel Sharon explained:

 

"The terms 'democracy' or 'democratic' are totally absent from the Declaration of Independence. This is not an accident. The intention of Zionism was not to bring democracy, needless to say. It was solely motivated by the creation in Eretz-Isrel of a Jewish state belonging to all the Jewish people and to the Jewish people alone. This is why any Jew of the Diaspora has the right to immigrate to Israel and to become a citizen of Israel."

 

 

Indeed America and Israel's economies are both tied to an Industrial Government Military SECURITY/Surveillance Complex and the poor keep getting poorer while the merchants of war are kept fat and happy.

 

   

PERRY: "The Jewish state faces growing hostility from Turkey. Its three decade-old peace with Egypt hangs by a thread. Iran pursues nuclear weapons its leaders vow to use to annihilate Israel."

It was President Harry Truman who crossed out the word   "Jewish state" on the draft of the Establishment of Israel that was cabled him and substituted "State of Israel" which he affirmed was contingent upon Israel upholding the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Read more...

 


Israel's ambassador to Egypt, Yitzhak Levanon, fled to Israel following protests that erupted after Israel failed to apologize for murdering nine Turkish humanitarian activists and killings five Egyptian Policemen.  Some of Egypt's political parties have also called for changes to the country's 1979 peace treaty with Israel.

 

The planned demonstrations in Jordan at the Israeli embassy in Amman on Thursday forced Israel to pull its ambassador and staff out as the people called for ending the shameful "peace treaty".
