Deputy Speaker of the Knesset Danny Danon accompanied former Alaska Governor and 2008 US Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her husband Todd on a tour of the Western Wall tunnels this evening. The Deputy Speaker was the first Israeli public official to greet the Governor during her visit to Israel.
During the tour, the leaders discussed breaking developments in Israel and the Middle East. Danon thanked Palin for consistently supporting Israel’s right to defend itself.
Danon also requested that Palin help explain to the Obama administration and the American public that “we cannot make peace with Palestinian leaders who are unable to fight the elements of pure evil in their society, who brutally murder young children while they sleep. Instead of pressuring Netanyahu and endangering the Israeli people – the administration should be holding the Palestinians accountable to their past commitments to fight terrorism.”
