Whoever blesses Israel will be blessed. And whoever curses Israel will be cursed:

“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
– Genesis 12:3

God bless the State of Texas

In a groundbreaking legislative act to blunt economic warfare against Israel, the Texas House of Representatives unanimously passed on Thursday an anti-boycott bill that bars the state from engaging in business with companies that are involved in the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement targeting the Jewish state.

The bill was passed 131-0 and the author of the legislation was Representative Phil King. Pro-Israel organizations welcomed the vote….

Christians United for Israel (CUFI) said in a statement that ,” CUFI has been working closely with lawmakers in support of the legislation since its conception. These efforts included bringing Texans from across the state to Austin to lobby lawmakers in support of the bill, testifying before both the Senate and House committees to which the legislation was assigned, and distributing an action alert earlier this week letting Texas State Representatives know that CUFI’s membership is behind the bill.”

CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee said “Texas is CUFI’s home state and among the most pro-Israel states in the union.

    That Bible verse (Gen. 12:3) is a favorite of mine & really sums it all up perfectly, which is another reason why having an Israel-hater like Obama as the U.S. President for 8 years was so worrisome, to say the least. I had not seen this happy news out of Texas, but it makes me want to bring it up to representatives in my own state to tell them this is a bill we need, too!! Thanks for sharing this.

    My greatest fear for our nation has been how we treat Israel. We bring condemnation upon ourselves when we elect leaders that shun Israel. May the USA forever stand with Israel.
