As ALL ISRAEL NEWS reported last week, former U.S. Vice President Mike Pence arrived in Tel Aviv on Thursday for his first scheduled visit to Israel since its war against the Hamas terror organization began on Oct. 7.

U.S. President Joe Biden and various members of Congress – both Republicans and Democrats – have visited over the past three months, however, Pence is the highest-profile Republican to come to Israel since Oct. 7. Pence, who served during former President Donald Trump's administration, is also a devout pro-Israel Christian, making him the highest-profile Evangelical to visit Israel during the war.

On Thursday, Pence visited the town of Sderot, as well as Kibbutz Kfar Aza, the site of the Nova music festival massacre at Kibbutz Re’im and the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon.

“In this dark hour, I wanted to do my part to make sure the people of Israel know that the people of the United States are with you and that we will stand with you,” Pence said, according to the Times of Israel.

Regarding the hearing at the International Court of Justice against Israel’s alleged “genocide,” Pence said: “Israel and the United States should denounce any action to use the International Court of Justice or the United Nations to equate the unprovoked genocidal attack of Hamas on the Jewish people with Israel’s actions in self-defense.”

Pence was accompanied by Israel’s Speaker of the Knesset, Amir Ohana of the Likud party during his visit.

Just last week, ALL ISRAEL NEWS co-founder Joel C. Rosenberg and his wife, Lynn, hosted a Solidarity Mission of Evangelical Christian leaders in Israel, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, for U.S. Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Commission Ken Blackwell, Calvary Albuquerque Senior Pastor Skip Heitzig and his wife, Lenya.

Pence's trip has been in the discussion and planning stages soon after the former vice president dropped out of the 2024 presidential campaign during a meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition on Oct. 28.

The last time Pence visited Israel was in January 2020. He spoke during the Fifth World Holocaust Forum at Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum in Jerusalem.
