Tense moments as protesters interrupt VP Pence’s bold Jerusalem speech at Israeli parliament

If the White House’s policy is provoking protests from the anti-Israel crowd, our president is doing something right.

Vice President Mike Pence’s speech before Israel’s parliament on Monday was briefly interrupted by several of that body’s Israeli-Arab members, who loudly opposed the Trump administration’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

A group of 13 members of the Israeli parliament defied the American vice president with signs that read “Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine,” according to NBC.

The disruption ended after ushers escorted the protesting members out of the chamber, Lahav Harkov of the Jerusalem Post noted.

Vice President Pence declared that the US will move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by 2019, NBC reported. His announcement was met with applause from Israeli lawmakers.

“Our president made his decision in the best interest of the United States,” the vice president said. “We believe his decision is in the best interest of peace.”

“The United States has chosen fact over fiction,” Vice President Pence said of the administration’s historic decision.
