When Alaska HDTV PodShow host Scott Slone took Palin on an urban hike in February, he captured a telling political detail -- the footage showed that the governor keeps a small Israeli flag by her office window. The flag, naturally, reveals Palin to be a loyal supporter of the Jewish state, despite the fact that she has little experience with Middle East affairs -- she's never visited the region nor has said anything of note on it.
Matt Brooks of the Republican Jewish Coalition, which e-mailed the clip to its list Monday, voiced his enthusiasm:
I think it is extremely telling," he said. "[It] tells her she has Israel in her heart."
