What a glorious and exciting day for me to be able to attend the welcoming ceremony for VP, Mike Pence hosted by The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanya
That is something that I will never ever forget!
Just wonderful to see good friends, and the leaders of the two most important countries in the world meeting in God’s holy city of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish State.
Mike Pence speaking in Israel: “The American people are proud to stand with Israel as allies.
And so we will pray for the peace of Jerusalem, that there will be peace in your citadels. We will work and strive for that brighter future, so everyone who calls this ancient land home shall sit under their fig tree, and none shall make them afraid.”
We stand with Israel, because we believe in right over wrong, liberty over tyranny.
People in the US have always held a special admiration for the People of the Book. In the story of the Jews, we’ve always seen the story of America, the story of Exodus, a journey from persecution to freedom,”
