PERRY: As a Christian I have a clear directive to support Israel, from my perspective its pretty easy both as an American and a Christian. I am going to stand with Israel.
--ZIppers quoting ThinkProgress
The President should be concerned ONLY with "the national interest." If defending Israel is in the national interest, fine. But to state that Christianity posits 'a clear directive to support Israel'-- is both stupid and ill-informed. (Unless Perry can come up with some sort of Christian doctrinal statement to that effect---and he won't.)
