Does the road to the 2012 GOP presidential nomination lead through Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu?

The Republican Jewish Coalition announced this morning that it's paying for Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour to come to Israel to meet with Netanyahu this weekend. It's the third time in roughly a month that the Israeli PM has met with a 2012 hopeful.

On Monday, Netanyahu met with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (who was oddly accompanied by actor Jon Voight). Last month, he met with Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who is contemplating another run for president.
