A special cooperation agreement was recently signed between Texas and Israel’s Samaria region, marking an unprecedented rebuff of those seeking to boycott the Israeli settlement movement.

The agreement, signed by Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller during a Samaria Regional Council meeting headed by Yossi Dagan, includes an exchange of technologies and expertise in agriculture and water technologies, Israel National News reported.

“We want to re-establish relations between Texas and Israel, and especially with Samaria, which is such a significant part of the land of Israel. We want to be partners of Israel and Samaria to recreate the brotherhood that was lost in recent years,” Miller said.

Dagan said that the signing of the agreement “is a significant move that sends an unequivocal message to the parties promoting the boycott of Judea and Samaria and Israel, [that] the countries of the world will not accept this boycott.”

Israeli Public Security Minister and Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan, who also attended the signing, added that Israel and Texas “share many common values” such as “the deep connection to the land and the importance of working and preserving it, and the potential for increasing economic cooperation between Israel and Texas is enormous.”

“I thank the Texas government for its steadfast support for Israel and for promoting legislation against the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement. I believe that legislation is an effective tool to combat the delegitimization campaign against Israel,” Erdan said.
