Gov. Rick Perry has gone on the record concerning his thoughts on the recent trouble between Israel and Palestine.

Many people think Texas should be it's own country.  Sometimes as a state we act that way.  Gov. Rick Perry has written to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to say he is 'deeply saddened' to see Israel under constant attack from 'Hamas forces firing rockets and mortars'.

Over 1,000 rockets have been fired at Israel this week.  There was also a bus bombing this morning, but Hamas has disclaimed responsibility.  Israel has responded with nearly 1,500 air strikes.  There have been many lives lost on both sides.

Gov. Perry went on to say he stands with Israel.
