Rick Perry's strong speech in support of Israel.

In New York City on Tuesday, Rick Perry gave a very good speech in support of Israel before members of the Jewish community. Whether you support Rick Perry's quest for the Republican nomination or not, you have to like the unequivocal support for Israel displayed by the Texas governor.  This strong speech's strongest statement was this castigation of the Obama administration: “The Obama Policy of moral equivalency which gives equal standing to the grievances of Israelis and Palestinians, including the orchestrator's of terrorism, is a very dangerous insult."

Perry also castigated the Palestinian authority for their "dangerous" attempt to gain statehood in the United Nations without gaining them through direct negotiations with Israel.  Perry said that if this action is actually approved in the UN, the United States should begin defunding the UN and that all aid to the Palestinians should stop. He also said this action should lead to the United Nations taking away all recognition of the PLO as having status in the UN.  This received a huge applause in the room.

Here is a portion of this great speech by Rick Perry in New York:
