Aaron Klein reported for Fox News, this morning, that although most Israelis have never heard of Palin, they know she’s pro-Israel, and they appreciate that:
Daylife –JERUSALEM, ISRAEL – MARCH 21: In this handout image provided by the Israeli Government Press Office, Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (2L) and her husband Todd Palin (L) meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (R) and his wife Sara Netanyahu
AFP reports on her dinner with Netanyahu:
Sarah Palin, darling of the US Republican right, joined Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for dinner at his Jerusalem residence on Monday on the second day of a “private visit” to Israel.
The meeting, at which the two were accompanied by their spouses, was off-limits to the media, and Netanyahu’s office did not immediately publish any statement.
A photograph released by the Israeli Government Press Office showed the two couples standing in front of the Israeli and United States flags in the residence.
The former Alaska governor arrived on Sunday afternoon with her husband Todd and went straight to Jerusalem’s walled Old City where she visited the Western Wall, the most sacred site where Jews are allowed to pray.
Palin plans to visit Christian sites in Northern Israel before she leaves the country, tomorrow. AFP reports that she plans on returning in the coming months for “an official visit”. Wonder what that’s all about…
Legal Insurrection: “Why are you apologizing all the time?”
With that single sentence made to her Israeli hosts, Sarah Palin demonstrated a greater understanding of the problems confronting Israel than the collective wisdom of all the J.D.’s, Ph.D’s, and Masters of International Affairs in the Obama administration combined.
The question was profound, as simple as it were, because it addressed the narrative of perpetual Palestinian victimization and grievance.
