Yes, Gov. Rick Perry. The situation Israel faces with Gaza is almost exactly like the one between your state and Mexico. Indeed. Just two things different, really: to mirror the situation along the border with Mexico, Israel would have to actually be the ones allowing weapons to cross the borders into Gaza in the same way U.S. weapons make their way south to Mexico. Also, Israel would have to be a land which gained its independence after first importing Tennesseans to defeat the Arab armies. It would also need a professional sports team as s****y as the Cowboys. (Sorry, three things.) Other than that, though, mazel tov on the brilliant analogy.
