Vice President Mike Pence recently commemorated the 70th anniversary of the United Nations’ vote which led to the establishment of Israel’s nationhood.
The UN resolution to establish the state of Israel took place on November 29th, 1947. In commemorating the anniversary, Pence noted that God’s hand can be seen in these events.
"While Israel was built by human hands, it's impossible not to see the hand of heaven here, too," said Pence, while speaking at the Queens Museum in New York City, which is also the site of the historic UN vote.
According to OneNewsNow.com, the Museum was even made to look as it appeared 70 years ago.
In addition to commemorating the 70th anniversary of Israel’s nationhood, Pence reiterated the Trump administration’s commitment to moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
"President Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American embassy," Pence stated, adding that “[The United States] stands with Israel because her cause is our cause, her values are our values and her fight is our fight.”
Pence also said that the Trump administration is working to repeal some of the aspects of the Iran Nuclear Deal:
“[O]ur administration is working with Congress to overcome some of the Iran deal’s most glaring problems. Under President Trump, the U.S. will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons. This is our solemn promise to you, to Israel and to the world.”
