Former Alaska Governor and GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin lashed out at President Barack Obama’s administration today for its handling of relations with Israel, taking to Facebook to air out her frustrations over what she called “junior high diplomacy.”

“What is this — junior high school diplomacy? What next — using Facebook to ‘unfriend’ Israel? Isn’t it about time for the Obama administration to remember who our friends are and to treat them like friends?” Palin wrote on her Facebook page. “Israel is once again feeling the brunt of the Obama administration’s enemy centric foreign policy.”

Secretary of State John Kerry, who has been a target of Palin's in the past, also came under fire from the former governor for putting Israel in “an untenable position” over the Iranian nuclear deal as well as recent comments he made in Germany.

“You see for Israel there’s an increasing de-legitimization campaign that has been building up,” Kerry said earlier this week. “People are very sensitive to it. There are talk of boycotts and other kinds of things.”

“The Israelis are quite appropriately upset about the treatment they’ve received from Kerry,” Palin responded.

Comment: What is with Palin's constant comparisons to junior high school? Just last week she mocked a seasoned Washington reporter for "being one of the cool kids in school."
