Yup, she’s taking her talents to Jerusalem next week. She will meet Prime Minister Netanyahu as well as other right-wing politicians; she will also visit the Western Wall and Nazareth, the town she was raised in. Ben Smith reports that she booked the trip not through diplomatic channels but through a Christian tour group. Any resemblance to real Republican presidential candidates, living or dead, who have recently visited or otherwise politicked toward Israel—including Haley Barbour, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, and Tim Pawlenty—is purely coincidental.
