VICE PRESIDENT PENCE’S ELOQUENT SPEECH TO ISRAEL’S PARLIAMENT

At the same time, Vice President Pence did not allow Abbas’s snub or any concerns over diplomatic niceties to temper his expression of the Trump administration’s strong support for Israel. To the contrary, he declared in his address to the Knesset, “I am here to convey a simple message from the hearts of the American people. America stands with Israel. We stand with Israel because your cause is our cause, your values are our values, and your fight is our fight. We stand with Israel because we believe in right over wrong, good over evil, and liberty over tyranny.”
