Vice President Pence Hosts White House Celebration for Israel Independence Day, Calls Israel “America’s Most Cherished Ally”

Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday: “We celebrate the 69th anniversary of the independence of America’s most cherished ally, the Jewish state of Israel….On this day, the fifth day in the month of Iyar in the Hebrew calendar in 1948, nothing short of a miracle occurred. On that day, in the ancient and eternal homeland of the Jewish people, the State of Israel was reborn.”

    “How unlikely was Israel’s birth? How much more unlikely has been her survival? And how confounding against all odds, both past and present, has been her thriving? Since the moment of their independence, the Israeli people have awed the world with their strength of will, and their strength of character. They’ve turned the desert into a garden, scarcity into plenty….And at all times, in war and in peace, the people of Israel and the Jewish people have held their heads high. Every day, Israel takes the curses and slanders of too much of the world and turns them into blessings.”

    “America stands with Israel. President Trump stands with Israel for the same reason that every freedom-loving American stands with Israel – because her cause is our cause. Her values are our values. And her fight is our fight.”  (White House)
