Guess who's coming to Israel for Purim

On her way back to the US from a speech in India, Sarah Palin and her husband Todd are stopping in Israel. Their visit will coincide with the Purim holiday.
In their two-day visit, Palin and her husband Todd intend to pack in tours of Jerusalem’s Old City and Nazareth, as well as meetings with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the chairman of World Likud, MK Danny Danon, who is close to Republican officials. She also may visit Masada, the Western Wall tunnels, and Christian sites in Bethlehem.

"I’m thankful to be able to travel to Israel on my way back to the US,” Palin said. “As the world confronts sweeping changes and new realities, I look forward to meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu to discuss the key issues facing his country, our ally Israel.”

Palin had been planning a longer visit for more than a year, and she still is. Sources with knowledge of her plans called the current trip “an appetizer” for a more official visit later in the year.

A likely candidate for the Republican nomination for president, Palin’s visit will follow in the footsteps of other expected candidates like Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Haley Barbour and Rudolph Giuliani, who all met with Netanyahu during their respective visits.

Palin’s meeting with Netanyahu is expected to take place Monday night. An official in Netanyahu’s office said that Netanyahu understands well the importance of meeting US politicians, and makes every effort to meet them, regardless of party affiliation.

Palin kept an Israeli flag in her office when she was governor of Alaska. She has been a frequent critic of US President Barack Obama’s policies on Israel.

“The Jewish settlements should be expanded upon because the population will continue to grow,” she said in a recent interview. “The Obama administration does not have the right to tell them not to grow.”

In a Facebook post last year, Palin wrote that “as Israel makes concessions (and is still criticized by the Obama Administration), Arab leaders are just sitting back waiting for the White House to further pressure Israel. The Obama Administration needs to open its eyes and recognize that it is only Iran and her terrorist allies that benefit from this manufactured Israeli controversy.”
Better make sure Bibi doesn't get drunk on Monday. Heh.

Somebody take her up to Hagoshrim so she can sit in beauty and see the heights of Leb and Golan towering above. And to Rosh Hanikra to see the grottos (and the gate at the border)... and on the road down the Jordan Valley and up the back way into Jerusalem so she can get a feel for the elevations and small the width is and how empty a lot of the land is (unlike the impression the media give with their words, but never with accurate photos).

Palin would be fantastic on Israel, but she is unelectable She is gorgeous and, while she is certainly not my cup of tea, there is a huge gender gap where woman hate her... I think her looks work against her.

Carl, if she sun bathes by the Dead Sea, could you please post her photos? I know it's politically incorrect to say this, but she is smoking hot.
