LISTEN NOW! (Or WATCH FULL PROGRAM!) It is such a beautiful moment to see America’s leaders standing alongside Israel. There is no greater moment of this than AIPAC’s annual event. Amongst other distinguished leaders from America, Vice President Mike Pence also shared his heart towards Israel and commented on America’s strong bond with Israel. Vice President Pence shares his deep gratitude to serve but also to stand alongside our President. He also expresses the encouragement of our new President; “For the first time in a long time, America has a President who will stand with our allies and stand up to our enemies.” If there were any questions regarding Israel, the Vice President takes the time to answer those with clarity. “And, under President Donald Trump, if the world knows nothing else, the world will know this: America stands with Israel!”

The Vice President continued to highlight the actions of the President towards Israel as he commented on the subject of America’s Embassy and the Palestinian Conflict. “…After decades of simply talking about it, the President of the United States is giving serious consideration to moving the American Embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem.” He continues, “President Trump is also invested in finding an equitable and just resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.”

While there are many discussions and varying topics regarding America’s involvement with Israel, the Vice President highlights what is pinnacle in the eyes of the President. “President Trump will never compromise the safety and security of the Jewish State of Israel.” Considering America’s longstanding relationship with Israel, the present reality has special significance. “I’m proud to say that America’s support for Israel’s security is at a record level.” He continues, “And President Trump has made it absolutely clear, our commitment to Israel’s defense is non-negotiable; NOT NOW! NOT EVER!”

As the Vice President continues to discuss the realities of Israel’s safety and security, he isn’t bashful of recognizing and identifying the threats of evil that exist. “And, in President Trump, America has a leader who will call our enemies by their name…At this very moment, our Administration is crafting plans to defeat Radical Islamic terrorism so it can no longer bring violence to our enemies, to our allies, or inspire violence here at home.” As clear as these very words are, Vice President Pence makes sure there is no doubt of President Trump’s willingness to eradicate all signs of Radical Islam. “We will hunt down and destroy ISIS at its source, so it can no longer threaten our people, our allies, or our most cherished ally: Israel.”

As the Vice President continues to talk about the threats in the world, he changes topics to address Iran. “This Administration has put Iran on notice.” He shares more specifically, “America will no longer tolerate Iran’s efforts to de-stabilize the region and jeopardize Israel’s security. The Ayatollah’s in Tehran openly admit their desire to wipe Israel off the map and drive its people into the sea…” But, as the Vice President expresses, “The United States of America will not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. This is our solemn promise to you, to Israel, and to the world.”

These are such powerful words and a powerful moment in the nation’s history to see our leaders unashamedly standing up for and with Israel. Be encouraged as you see the Vice President’s full comments at AIPAC’s annual event, and so much more.
