“Texas and Israel “have similar stories”, even going back thousands of years. Prime Minister Netanyahu compared the Battle of the Alamo to the Siege of Masada in 73 AD when Jewish rebels were heavily outnumbered by the Romans, and many paid the ultimate price”

BREAKING ISRAEL NEWS – George P. Bush, the son of former Florida governor Jeb Bush, expressed strong support for Israel and urged Americans to conduct business with the Jewish State after a three-day unannounced trip to the region with a group of Texas businessmen.

The trip to Israel, which was not announced beforehand, was his first overseas visit since he took office as Texas Land Commissioner last year. While here, he met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and thanked him for “all he is doing to fight terrorism.”

Bush, the grandson of President George H.W. Bush and the nephew of President George W. Bush, also “expressed strong support for Israel” during his meeting with Netanyahu, his spokesman J.R. Hernandez told the Associated Press.

The two discussed possible partnerships between Israel and Texas in the economic arena, including technology, desalination, and energy.

Following the trip, Bush wrote in a post titled “Texas and Israel: 21st Century Strategic and Economic Alliance” that “America has no better ally and no truer friend in the world than Israel.”

He pointed out that Texas and Israel “have similar stories”, even going back thousands of years.

“Prime Minister Netanyahu compared the Battle of the Alamo to the Siege of Masada in 73 AD when Jewish rebels were heavily outnumbered by the Romans, and many paid the ultimate price,” he wrote.

One thing became clear to him after three days of meeting with political and business leaders in Israel, he continued, in a not-so-subtle jab at the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement: “The most important thing we can do for Israel is do business with Israel.”

He concluded, “They are not afraid to stand for freedom. And we must never be afraid to stand with them.”

Bush’s father, Jeb Bush, was a Republican contender for the GOP presidential nomination until he dropped out of the race in February.

While still in the running, Bush said he would begin his presidency by rebuilding the vital US-Israel friendship, which he said had been “altered by [Obama’s] administration.”

He also said that he firmly supported Israel’s right to self-defense in the face of terror threats.

    Great pic / meme: “Real Americans Expose the Israeli Mafia”

    It should go viral — especially in Texas to awaken the Texans.

    That monster can’t compare the Alamo with the destruction of the second temple in Jerusalem by the Romans (the first temple was destroyed by the Babylonians many centuries before) and it was done because the Jews irritated the hell out of the Babylonians and the Romans. It was a prediction and a curse Jesus put on the Jews before they crucified him. “Poor Jerusalem, it will be left no stone upon stone”. In the year 70 AD the Romans destroyed the city and killed hundreds of thousands of Jews, the few who survived were scattered all over the world to never return.
