“We stand with Israel because your cause is our cause, your values are our values, and your fight is our fight.”
VP Mike Pence’s visit to Israel was highlighted by his speech given at the Knesset on January 22, 2018. This is an historic moment as Pence was also afforded the privilege of being the first US Vice President to address the Knesset.
AFIS has listened carefully to every word of his speech. We feel confident that the declaration of support, friendship and commitment that United States has shown Israel is real and sincere. May this renewed relationship between the US and Israel go from strength to strength.
Excerpts from Pence’s speech:
“America stands with Israel.”
“By finally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the United States has chosen fact over fiction.”
“The Iran nuclear deal is a disaster, and the United States of America will no longer certify this ill-conceived agreement.”
“The miracle of Israel is an inspiration to the world. And the United States of America is proud to stand with Israel and her people, as allies and cherished friends.”
