Mike Pence was the 48th Vice-President of the United States, before which he served as Governor of Indiana and as a U.S. Congressman – during his Congressional tenure he Co-Chaired the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus. As Governor of Indiana, Pence signed into law what Ron Dermer, Israel's ambassador to the U.S., called 'the toughest anti-BDS legislation in the nation.'" (BDS, or “Boycott, Divestment, & Sanctions,” is an anti-Semitic and anti-Israel campaign to coordinate illegal “secondary boycotts” against Israel.) As Vice-President he was deeply engaged in the Administration’s pro-Israel initiatives – particularly moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. He has been forthright in basing his support for Israel on Scriptural sources as well as the religious values and interests the U.S. and Israel share.
I am here to convey a simple message from the heart of the American people: America stands with Israel. We stand with Israel because your cause is our cause, your values are our values, and your fight is our fight. We stand with Israel because we believe in right over wrong, in good over evil, and in liberty over tyranny. We stand with Israel because that’s what Americans have always done, and so has it been since my country’s earliest days.VP Mike Pence
