DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — During a rally for Israel in Dallas, Governor Rick Perry told attendees that America must end a “policy of calculated ambivalence” toward the Middle East.

But Perry mostly refrained from attacking American policy toward Israel in his brief speech Wednesday.

Several hundred people waved white-and-blue flags and cheered as Perry described his visits to Israel and his desire that the country remain a Jewish state.

Thousands of people have died during several weeks of fighting between Israeli soldiers and insurgents in the Palestinian territory of Gaza.

Perry has long touted his support for Israel as the Republican finishes his last term as governor and explores a second run for president.
