Helen Clark impressed on first visit to Israel

It was good to see a lot of positive reports from Helen Clark's first visit as the UN Development Program. 

She visited both Israeli and Palestinian representatives, and generally held herself well.

I didn't see too much political comment, but lots of positive things like this article telling about how she was blown away by Israeli innovation.  From a former NZ PM, she would be very familiar with NZ innovation, so this is a big statement.

Given people are suggesting her as a possible head of the UN, it is good to see her not pulling political sides, as many in the past have suggested she may be anti Israel.
