Israeli flags on her desk, in her home, all over the place! How many Democrats can make that claim?

Andrew Sullivan reports on Sarah Palin's efforts this week to burnish her foreign policy credentials.  Prior to the 2008 run with John McCain, she had made one trip outside North America, a 2006 visit to Alaskan National Guardsmen stationed near the Kuwait - Iraq border, with a visit to Germany to visit injured servicemen at a military hospital.  I posted on her comments in India earlier.  In India, she violated an unwritten but well observed traditional rule than American politicians don't publicly criticize a sitting president's foreign policy when outside the borders of our country.

Money Quotes:

Palin, who was wearing a large Star of David, told [World Likud chairman Danny] Danon that she had flags of Israel "on my desk, in my home, all over the place" and that she would carry around a flag she bought in Israel.
"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.
