Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is in Israel and occupied Palestine so as to gain the foreign policy bona fides needed to run for president. I wonder what that guy is telling him at the Western Wall. About plans to build the third temple? Or maybe he’s describing the occupation?
Matt Brooks of the Republican Jewish Coalition, a co-sponsor of the trip, tweeted that photo and said that the governor was in Israel.
Hitting the day running on first day in #Israel w/ @ScottWalker -visited the Kotel, Christian holy sites and Old City
The governor also said that East Jerusalem is Israel:
Great 1st day in Israel yesterday @ Western Wall, Mount of Olives, Church of the Holy Sepulchure & Via Dolorosa
All those sites are in occupied Jerusalem. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel made the same mistake.
Here he is with Natan Sharansky of the Jewish Agency.
Matt Brooks also tweeted that meeting:
Awesome mtg this morning with @ScottWalker and a true hero, Natan Sharansky, discussing democracy and freedom.
And here he is learning about the security challenges relating to Syria, on the Golan Heights.
