"why are you apologizing all the time?"
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a woman of great intellect and experience, is in Israel for a quick two day tour, meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu, and the American media has been largely silent on the subject.
“It’s overwhelming to be able to see and touch the cornerstone of our faith,” Palin told reporters upon exiting the tunnels. “I’m so thankful to be able to be here, and I’m thankful to know the Israel-American connection will grow and strengthen as the peace negotiations continue.”Gov. Palin joins other GOP presidential contenders Romney, Huckabee, Giuliani and Barbour in treks to the Holy Land ahead of a fast-approaching 2012.
After being told by her tour guides, Likud MK Danny Danon and Western Wall Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, that Jews are not allowed to pray openly on the Temple Mount and about the Arab riots in 1996 after Netanyahu created an exit from the Western Wall tunnels, Palin asked "Why are you [Israel] apologizing all the time?"
“She really connected to the story of the Jewish nation,” Danon said. “She knows the material but there’s nothing like standing in front of those big stones and hearing about the connection. I know that she loves Israel, and after a visit like this, she has a personal connection to the Western Wall.”
“She didn’t go into diplomatic issues, but I can clearly say from the questions she asked in relation to our conflict here with the Muslims in these holy sites that she knows that we are right and that the Muslims are just claiming things for provocation and they’re not right,” Danon said.Everybody knows Israel is right and that the Arabs are a bunch of angry bullies.
