Is Rick Perry an idiot, or just a politician?

Gov Rick Perry's OPpEd in the Jerusalem Post, shows amazing bias, even for a piece written to suck up to the Jewish vote

Texas and Israel share the experience of “civilized men and women thrown into new and harsh conditions, beset by enemies.”      Good analogy: in both cases, the enemies besetting them were the people whose land they stole by force of arms and legal trickery.

The Jewish state faces growing hostility from Turkey.    After killing a few of their citizens on the high seas – hardly a provocation in anybody’s book

And now, the Palestinian leadership is intent on trashing the possibility of a negotiated settlement of the conflict with Israel in favor of unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state by the United Nations.
   After only two full generations of negotiations – you’d think they’d have more patience.

the Palestinians are signaling that they have no interest in a two-state solution.
     By asking that both of the two states be recognized

… the precondition for any properly negotiated settlement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority is the formal recognition of the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state behind secure borders.
    And the right of Palestine to exist as a Muslim state behind secure borders?    Is that a step too far, or is it just that the sauce is only for the gander?  Or, do we just want Israel to be able to steal some more land first, before they agree to give others the right they ask for themselves?

the declared intention to establish a unity government with the terrorist group Hamas,
      openly and fairly elected by the people of Gaza, which signals a failure of democracy to produce the results we want.   Remember, Israel was started by terrorist groups  such as Haganah, Irgun and the Stern gang/
