Texans Show Support for Israel

Governor Rick Perry said, "Israel  has an absolute right and responsibility to defend its people against any and  all terrorist attacks, including the vicious rocket attacks by Hamas and other  terrorist groups against civilian targets in Israel's cities and towns. As Israel's long-time friend and partner, it's the United States' responsibility and honor to stand with the Israeli people during this difficult time."  KLBJ talked to the Consul General of Israel to the Southwest United States Meir Shlomo this morning.  He wants Texans to know the people of Israel are grateful for the support recevied from Texas.  He said Israel is under attack multiple times an hour. As we talked, you coul hear the sirens going off to warn Israelites to find shelter.
