Rand Paul visits the Wailing Wall

Rand PaulGETTING READY FOR PRIME TIME — Touching "the Wall" is a necessary rite of passage for every American politician contemplating higher office. With his head bowed, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) performed the servile act at the first stop of his Jan. 6 kick-off campaign in Israel. This is the Son in whom They are well pleased! 

JERUSALEM Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul paid a visit to the Western Wall ... for his first stop on a week-long tour of Israel and other parts of the Middle East.

Like the trip itself, Paul's visit to the Wall is likely to further fuel speculation about his plans for a 2016 White House bid. The Wall, a remnant of  the Second Temple built 2,000 years ago, is one of the most


sacred places in Judaism, and as such, has become a popular stop for US politicians contemplating a presidential run. Then-candidate Barack Obama took a trip to the Wall in 2008, and both Mitt Romney and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stopped by the sacred site last year.


In contrast to those high-profile visits, Paul's late-night trip to the Wall was relatively low-key. Accompanied by his two younger sons and the rabbi of the Western Wall, Shmuel Rabinowitz, Paul spent a few minutes of reflection at the Wall.

Later, Paul joined other members of his tour group for a private viewing of the Western Wall Tunnel, the controversial excavation that exposes the full length of the Wall and other previously unknown features of the Temple Mount.
