Skip to comments.Palin: 'Only Flag in My Office' Is Israeli
Posted on 09/26/2008 8:23:05 AM PDT by Iron Munro
President Peres of Israel yesterday met for the first time with Governor Palin and with Senator McCain, who called the veteran Israeli statesman "my old friend." /snip/ "I wanted to meet you for many years," Ms. Palin told Mr. Peres, according to an aide to the president. "The only flag at my office is an Israeli flag," she was quoted as saying, "and I want you to know and I want Israelis to know that I am a friend."

If this is according to an aide, then the statement isn't parenthetical, it is hearsay.
Anyone know why? I mean, I fully support Palin, I fully support Israel, but this seems an odd thing for the governor of Alaska to say.
I don’t get it. A U.S. governor will have an American flag and state flag in his/her office. Without context I’m having trouble following the point of this article.
Other than the American flag, obviously.
[quote] The Alaska governor told CBS’s Katie Couric that “a surge in Afghanistan also will lead us to victory there as it has proven to have done in Iraq,” adding that “we cannot afford to retreat, to withdraw in Iraq.” [snip]
We did win a vitory in Iraq. Maybe we’re reluctant to brag. But truth is truth.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go purchase my own rape kit.
Her office must have both the flag of the United States and the Alaskan flag in it. In fact IIRC both flags are prominently displayed in her office. The Israeli flag is a little 2" flag attached to the curtains.
Confusion from the Left generally means one thing.
There was a controversy among leftists and some nutty right wingers a while back that she wears an Israeli flag pin instead of an American flag to show her allegiance for AIPC.. HOWEVER, the idiots didn’t realize the pin she was wearing was a Blue Star Mom pin for her son overseas in the military.
Palin at work in 2006.
Palin in the Governor's board room.
I wonder who field stripped Alcee Hasting’s brain.
I have seen pictures of Governor Palin in her office and she does indeed have a US flag along with an Israeli flag. This is just another gotcha story.
New York Sun as a credible media for Palin? ROTFLFAO!!! Anyone who believes this sh*t might as well believe in Scientology.
Wow. Thanks for that perspective, if that indeed is in play here. I guess any one person can make a mistake, but how can a group of people mistake the Blue Star flag with the Israeli flag?
I think she meant of another country
Check 2:40 of the following video:
There is a small Israeli flag in the window of Palin’s office There is also a large US flag and flag of Alaska.
Here is a link to a video which shows the Israeli flag in her office.
