US Vice President Mike Pence said yesterday in a speech before the annual AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) conference that President Donald Trump is seriously considering moving the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
In front of 18,000 participants in the conference, Pence said, "After decades of simply talking about it, the POTUS is giving serious consideration to moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem!"
He said, "If the world knows nothing else, the world will know this, America stands with Israel!" He went on to say that, "in President Trump America has a leader that will call their enemies by their name. The US administration is planning to defeat radical Islam so it can no longer threaten our people, allies or our most cherished ally Israel!"
Pence promised that the United Nations would no longer serve as an instrument and forum against the Jewish state. He then congratulated the new Israeli ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, whose appointment had been approved by the Senate following a narrow vote last Thursday. Friedman would deepen the American relations with Israel even more, it was an honor for him to sworn him as the new ambassador in Israel.
