Pence: Peace Requires Palestinian Willingness to Recognize the Jewish State of Israel

(White House) Vice President Mike Pence told Christians United for Israel on Monday: "How unlikely was Israel's birth, how more unlikely has been her survival, and how confounding, against the odds, has been her thriving. Since the moment of their independence, the Jewish people have awed the world with their strength of will and their strength of character. Indeed, anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear must acknowledge that Israel is a living testimony to the power of hope over hate and so will she always be." "The Jewish people have turned the desert into a garden, sickness into health, scarcity into plenty, despair into hope, and slander into blessings - rebuking all who condemn them; not for what they do wrong, but for what they do right." "Any [Israeli-Palestinian] peace requires an end to the incitement of hatred, an end to any support whatsoever of terrorism. And above all else, a lasting peace requires true and complete Palestinian willingness to accept and recognize the Jewish State of Israel."
