1. Rick Perry = Bush the Second
No Perry Fan ,   USA   (09.20.11)
I don't like Rick Perry. He's just another gun-slinging, shoot-from-the-hip Texan whose adminstration reeks of cronyism and who is incapable of taking any perspective other than his own. The last thing this country needs is another president from Texas. BUT he's got one thing right: Obama's Mid-East policy SUCKS!!
2. rick perry
tamir ,   los angeles   (09.20.11)
he just got my vote. No self respective jew or anyone who supports israel should ever vote for anything but a republican. Its obvious who is with us and who is agaisnt us.
3. Mad man Evangelicals are dangerous to Judaism
shlomo ,   USA   (09.20.11)
Just take a look at him, and hear him and you will see someone who puts himself above others. No humility, no humanity, no moral high ground. Add to that the Evangelical notion that when the Jews move to Israel and convert to Christianity, the Messiah (Jesus) will come. Watch your wallet and pocketbook with this guy around.
4. Perry Pimping for Votes
Marcel ,   Florida   (09.20.11)
Where was this latest phony Republican political huckster two months ago ? Where was he ever on Israel? Hiding under his king sized bed?
5. God has sent us a saviour once again
Itsik Biton ,   Israel   (09.20.11)
I tell you, I like this guy!
6. I like this guy already : )
Mark ,   Lodz, Poland   (09.20.11)
7. To: Marcel at No. 4
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.20.11)
You happen to be wrong. He is an evangelical Christian who has been a staunch -- and vocal -- supporter of Israel pretty much since he entered politics, not just his recent emergence on the national radar.
8. Obama policy dangerous?
observer ,   Egypt   (09.20.11)
how many billion $ the US is going to pay Israel this time for failure of Obama policy to suppress the UN self-determination.
9. Rick Perry
HERMIE ,   pa usa   (09.20.11)
He is right! Obama snubbed Netanyahu and he hasn't really improved things since. He does nothing to slow Turkey from it's possible march to war with Israel. He has not visited Israel as President but he has gone to Cairo. How about showing Palestinians celebrating the death of 3000 Americans on 9/11 again to show who these people are. GIVE ME RICK AND MICHELLE ANY DAY
10. Perry has my vote !!!
J1 ,   earth   (09.20.11)
11. Rick Perry
Miriam ,   Skokie IL USA   (09.20.11)
I am undecided about Rick Perry. I like his ability to admit to a mistake which he did in the last debate. I like his stance on Israel. I know that I won't vote for Romney. Obahema isn't naive. I think that he has tried all along to sabotage Israel. He was brought up as a Moslem and then aligned himself with a so called church that spews hatred of Israel and of the US. I do not give him credit for naivite but for purposely trying to bring down the US and according to his ideological standards.
12. #3 shlomo
Marcel ,   Florida   (09.20.11)
I suppose the Jew Ehud Barak is good for Israel ?
13. Marcel
Yonason Herschlag   (09.21.11)
Way back during the flotilla crisis, Perry spoke up in front of the entire congress expressing rage at Obama's statements that the blockade is "unsustainable". He's been an avid supporter of Israel for some time. Check his past before you jump to conclussions.
14. amusing
dovid ,   usa   (09.21.11)
amusing to see my fellow American Jews praise Perry. Ignoring the fact he is anti-science and anti-truth.
15. #12 Marcel - Any Jew is better for Israel
shlomo ,   USA   (09.21.11)
The only people Jews can truly trust is other Jews and if we cannot trust each other we are doomed. Have you forgotten the Shoah so soon? This goy only cares about himself. When push cones to shove he too will sell us down the river.
16. Rick Perry...
Luke ,   U.S.A.   (09.21.11)
...another useful Israeli idiot.
17. The US embassy has finally be moved to
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (09.21.11) is unbelievable, that this has not already be done...!!! This is a SHAME....!!!!!
18. War on ISLAM is War on JUSTICE
Yousuf ,   USA   (09.21.11)
All you people who would like to stir this unjust war on the most Just system in the world are going the wrong way. Help yourselves by helping Islam! God will give victory to his Just slaves over UnJust racists.
19. Not so fast
Devorah   (09.21.11)
Google "Rick Perry Islam Texas," and you will find some problematic and disturbing issues.
20. Dovid
Yonason Herschlag   (09.21.11)
The "theory" of evolution is far from proven, and in fact the fossil evidence is the biggest challenge to the theory. Those of scientific minds, as well as people who sincerely pursue truth don't buy the theory. It's only the people with child like mentality that swallow "science" without any thought.
21. Where Was He?
carlbarry ,   Long island, USA   (09.21.11)
Where was Perry when Bush was demanding Israel create a contiguous Palestinian state? How gullible we are, thinking that someone trying to make political points really cares about us.
22. 'the us republican party"
sjoerd ruurd van der ,   mankindnation...   (09.21.11)
the us republican party is still the most ridiculous, most dangerous party. and it has been gradually became ready, to function under a form of dictatorship also because of megalomenia. it wants to control the entire people/family of humanity and of mankind.
23. Better late than never, Mr Perry - go ahead fast !
Who cares   (09.21.11)
Your nation is in immense political and economical danger, Mr Perry. This because your present government is a curse for Israel ! Stand up and change it for your own sake !
24. to no. 1
Jennie ,   Israel/US   (09.21.11)
Rick Perry Rocks ! He is going to be the next President of the Unted States, mr. No Perry Fan..
25. well said tamir
kfir ,   canada   (09.21.11)
26. State within a State?
Keola ,   Kingdom of Hawaii   (09.21.11)
If the UN recognizes a sovereign Arab state within the Israeli state, then it should also recognize a sovereign Tibetan state within China, a Kurd state within Iraq, a Native Hawaiian state within the US, a Guarani state within Brazil, and a Shia state within Saudi Arabia.
27. #18 Sick, warped idea of "justice"
No way mate, there is no war on Islam - its the opposite. Islam is attacking the West. Its our ideals , beliefs and values that are being challenged by Islam. You are only 'slaves' to your controlling , primitive religion. We dont want your ways in our countries - that's what we're telling you. You are more than free to practice whatever you want in places that are already under Sharia. Go there. Because we cant go to those places and build a church CAN we?
28. Naive and Dangerous!
P   (09.21.11)
Obama may be naive, but so is Perry - and even more so. A Perry presidency would be a disaster for Israel and for the United States.
29. Perry will win 5% of the Jewish vote, even if he converts
Dovid ,   Los Angeles   (09.21.11)
30. Why does Thomas Friedman hates Israel so much???????
American   (09.21.11)
does he get paid by the Saudis to write against Israel? How did he get so rich working for a newspaper? the guy has 200 million dollars from working as a reporter?
