AUSTIN — Gov. Rick Perry, highlighting his affinity for Israeli causes as he contemplates a presidential run, has urged U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to aggressively work against a planned pro-Palestinian flotilla aimed at Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip.

"As an American citizen and governor of one of its largest states, I write to applaud your recent efforts to warn and discourage those who have supported or plan to support a flotilla intended to interfere with Israel's maritime blockade of the Gaza Strip," Perry wrote in a June 28 letter released on Wednesday.

"More importantly, I write to encourage you to aggressively pursue all available legal remedies to enjoin and prevent these illegal actions, and to prosecute any who may elect to engage in them in spite of your preemptive efforts," Perry wrote.

Perry asked that the Justice Department "take immediate steps" against those found to be violating U.S. law, including bans on participating in a naval expedition against people with whom the United States is at peace and providing "material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization."

I live in Southern CA and got a solicitation from Rick in the...

mail pleading for funds for Bla, Bla Bla because the Republican party needs funds to block this and that and the other BS he is pimping to get wider name recognition! I didn't read the solicitation, but knew that it was secondary to getting his name in front of my eyeballs because the SOB is going to run in the 2012 election. Slick Rick is on the move and he needs to be exposed! He speaks with a forked tongue and walks with cloven feet, I'll bet!!

I hope you used he return

I hope you used he return paid envelope to stuff a bunch of RP slim jims in there!

Didn't have any, or I ...

disgusting...

God how I despise the neocons. We should just help Israel starve all the Palestinians to death -- they're not human anyway. Well, that's how the neocons think.
