Headline: “[PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Pence’s speech reveals the influence of Zionist Christianity on American policy”
“The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates emphasized that American Vice President Mike Pence’s speech [to the Israeli Parliament] is a missionary speech that came from the mouth of a religious preacher who is closely connected to Zionism and saturated with ideological terms full of racism and hatred of the other…
The ministry said that Pence represents Zionist Christianity and the missionary Evangelical Church that believes in Jesus’ return, and thinks that his return will only be realized under the sovereignty of the State of Israel whose capital is Jerusalem. This missionary Messianic logic is what stands behind [US] President [Donald] Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the State of Israel’s capital, because the conservative Christian stream that Pence represents thinks that this will hasten Jesus’ return.”
US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel - On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and instructed the State Department to begin preparations to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump added that the final borders of Jerusalem will be determined during negotiations.
