Palin will visit Israel

(CNN) – Following in the footsteps of several other Republicans considering a presidential bid, Sarah Palin is set to make a stop in Israel following her Saturday speech in New Delhi, India.

“I'm thankful to be able to travel to Israel on my way back to the U.S.,” Palin said in a statement obtained by CNN. “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 last went overseas in December when she visited Haiti on a humanitarian mission. She also visited Kosovo and Germany in 2009.

Other potential GOP candidates to visit Israel in recent months include Mitt Romney, Haley Barbour, and Mike Huckabee.

A Palin aide declined to provide further details about the trip.

    By the time this idiot gets done, the entire world will think that we are as crazy as she is. Last person I would want representing us.

    Why this empty head traveling to Israel? Just to further embarrass us? She does not even hold a political post other than Chief Whiner. Anyone ever hear a viable solution come out of her pie hole?

    "I look forward to meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu to discuss the key issues facing his country, our ally Israel."

    So, Sarah Plain is representing the United States overseas now? Good luck with that America.

    Why is this thing going abroad in the name of America? I'm so embarrased. I wish the Massad will do us a favor and take her off of our hands. Go away! You're not even a politician.

    Heaven help us !
    She can't even discuss what day it is with any degree of accuracy. I hope the Jewish people forgive us for releasing this idiot on them.

    I'd pay to hear that conversation.

    OMG. She's going to talk to a head of state? I certainly hope she doesn't start a war with one of her idiotic sound bytes.

    I guess she needs to kiss Netanyahu's ring and get his blessing.

    Trying to build an international resume? Too little too late and even if you were culturally aware or had foreign policy experience, you have shown enough hate and divisiveness, most of America still do not believe you have what it takes to lead this country.

    What in the world could she possibly talk about with the Prime Minister??? I hope he's too busy.

    She can travel to the moon and on her way back stop in Saturn, she's still not worthy of any position in any government; not even student council.

    What could this mental pygmy possibly have to discuss with the prime minister of any country?

    She probably heard there was a "new deli" in India and she wants to compare the Jewish delis on the way home.

    If we're lucky Israel will keep her, what a tool she is.

    Of course Palin is an expert in mideast issues and policies. She can see it from her backyard.

    Whew, I thought I would never stop laughing. How funny..." discuss key issues facing his country." What issues could this woman possibly discuss with the Prime Minister of Israel. We all know this woman is stupid on foreign and international affairs among other things, so who is she trying to fool here.

    Sarah Palin, who has no chance of being elected POTUS, is going to visit a world leader, in this case Netanyahu, for what purpose?! I think he already knows she's a clown, is she obliging a request for a personal show to confirm it?!

    Palin..........visiting world leaders................?????????????

    Why would a head of state, even a right winger like Netanyahu, want to talk with this nincompoop???

    With Palin going to Israel, this will surely hinder our relationship with that country.

    Imagine when she opens up to Netanyahou.

    Good for her! Maybe she will learn something about the "History of mankind". Remember Sarah, in the bible it says very plainly,"Thou shall not kill" That means critters too? She loves to kill Critters,anytime she can get a "Tag" I hope you come back as a Moose? Animal abuser.Isreal, she does not represent our country,Im sure you already know that! The people of Palistine know,as well. Sensible Americans are a little "embarassed" at these Presidential wanna bees!!!

    Why would any world leader discuss issues with their country with Palin? That would be like trying to discuss issues with a brick wall. The only difference is you wouldn't get a stupid response from the brick wall.

    I can't understand why the Prime Minister would meet with her?
