Gov. Sarah Palin and husband Todd have concluded their two-day visit to Israel after dining with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara at his official residence, the Jerusalem Post reports:
Ahead of the meeting, Netanyahu’s office checked with Palin to see whether they could expand it to a full reception for her with other politicians and aides, but she politely declined.Privately, the former Alaska governor and Republican Party vice presidential candidate assured her hosts that she would return soon for a week long visit and would meet with more Israeli politicians and the media then.
In an effort to keep her visit as private as possible, Palin also declined all requests for interviews and did her best to avoid the media as she toured the Mount of Olives and Christian sites in Jerusalem on Monday.
Palin was due to leave Israel early Tuesday morning.
