Sarah Palin Arrives in Jerusalem

After a visit to India, Sarah Palin arrived in Israel Sunday and took a sightseeing trip around Jerusalem, seeing the Western Wall and the Old City. "Israel is absolutely beautiful and it is overwhelming to see and touch the cornerstone of our faith and I am so grateful to be here," Palin told reporters, while wearing a Star of David necklace. “I'm very thankful to know that the Israeli and American link will grow in strength as we seek peace along with you.” Though she’s travelling as a private citizen, Palin will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday. And even if her whirlwind international tour looks like a bid to bolster her foreign-policy credentials, Palin remained coy about her 2012 intentions. "I don't think there needs to be a rush to get out there as a declared candidate," she said last week. "It's a life-changing decision."
