Perry, in Israel, to sign Texas A&M agreement

Gov. Rick Perry is expected to sign an agreement creating a Texas A&M branch campus in Israel.

   Perry and Israeli President Shimon Peres are scheduled to hold a signing ceremony Wednesday at Peres' residence in Jerusalem.

   Perry is a proud Aggie graduate traveling Israel this week with Texas A&M Chancellor John Sharp, who announced Tuesday that A&M would open a "peace university" in Nazareth, Israel's largest city.

   Sharp says the university will foster "understanding and education and unity in Israel."

   Perry spoke Tuesday at a conference about how both Israel and Texas face the future challenge of finding fresh water.
