“Israel’s fight is our fight, her cause is our cause and her values are our values.”
During the Donald Trump era, America “will stand with Israel,” Vice President Mike Pence vowed on Thursday, during his address to the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Maryland.
Pence conveyed his pleasure of serving in a US administration that stands with the State of Israel, while addressing the annual conference at CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) on Thursday night.
“I’m proud to stand with our president who stands with our most cherished ally, the Jewish State of Israel,” said Pence.
“Israel’s fight is our fight, her cause is our cause, her values are our values, and under President Trump, America will stand with Israel.”
During his address, Pence also mentioned that the Trump administration had put US enemies on notice. After Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had put “Iran on notice,” a regime that opposes the existence of the Jewish state, Pence had warned the Islamic Republic to think twice before testing the resolve of the Trump administration to follow through on its threats.
Pence’s CPAC appearance came a day after he stopped at a recently vandalized Jewish cemetery in Missouri and lent a helping hand in the cleanup effort.
Excerpts From VP Mike Pence Speech:
“President Donald Trump is a man of his word, and with respect to our most cherished ally, he’s been more than a man of his word. Under President Donald Trump, if the world knows nothing else, the world knows this: America stands with Israel. (Applause) You know, it’s the greatest honor of my life to serve as vice president alongside a president who cares so deeply about the state of Israel. Thanks to the president’s leadership our alliance has never been stronger. Our friendship has never been deeper. We stand with Israel today for the same reasons the American people have always stood with Israel. We stand with Israel because her cause is our cause, her values are our values, and her fight is our fight. We stand with Israel because we believe in right over wrong and good over evil, in liberty over tyranny. We stand with Israel today, tomorrow, and we always will.” (Applause).
