And yes, it's a Sarah Palin camp word.
As for coming to Israel saw this story. Seems verified here.
And the official web site reads:
Statement from Governor Palin on her upcoming trip to Israel.
Following her remarks in New Delhi, Governor Sarah Palin will stop in Israel before returning to the U.S. for a previously scheduled event.
"I'm thankful to be able to travel to Israel on my way back to the U.S.," Governor Palin said. "As the world confronts sweeping changes and new realities, I look forward to meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu to discuss the key issues facing his country, our ally Israel."
Maybe Danny Danon was involved?
