Pence Says Yerushalayim Recognition Will Lead To Peace, Calls For Changes To Iran Nuclear Deal


Vice President Mike Pence reiterated today the Trump administration’s stance that U.S. recognition of Yerushalayim as the capital of Israel will lead to peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

“President Trump truly believes that the decision the United States has made to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, we believe, will set the table for the opportunity to move forward in meaningful negotiations to achieve a lasting peace and end the decades-long conflict,” said Pence during a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.

“Inshallah,” Rivlin replied, using the Arabic expression for “with God’s help.”

Pence’s statement came a day after he told Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu that Trump recognized Yerushalayim as Israel’s capital because he is “convinced” that it will lead to “good faith negotiations.” During his address Monday to the Israeli parliament, Pence declared that the U.S. would move its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem “before the end of next year.”

In his meeting with Rivlin, Pence also lauded the strong security cooperation between Israel and the U.S., stating that America stands “shoulder-to-shoulder” with the Jewish state in the war against radical Islamic terrorism and “the threat of the leading state sponsor of terror, Iran.”

“President Trump’s recent decision to announce that the waiver he will sign on sanctions under the Iran nuclear deal would be the last one,” said Pence. “The time has come for changes in the Iran nuclear deal.”

  1. A Message from Eliyahu HaNavi to an IDF Soldier
    [Please Google this link to find an interesting story on]
    Here is a very quick translation:

    We heard in a lecture on Chanukah 5778 by Rabbi Dov Kook of Tiberius, who said that by Purim the war of Gog and Magog will breakout and that this Purim 5778 will be the last Purim before the revelation of Mashiach.

    A few days ago, after services, a young student approached his Rabbi in a certain village in Israel and asked if he could tell him about a frightening incident. A true story that happened to a young man a few days before that.

    A young soldier got on a bus and sat at the back seat. An old man came to sit next to him. The old man, without knowing him started to speak to him and said: “You should know that the war of Gog and Magog will breakout in Shvat”

    The shocked young man asked him “How do you know this”, the old man said “It is hard to prove what I know, but in order for you to understand that it is true, you can ask me any question you have about any person you know and I will tell you everything about him”.

    The young man thought and said to himself I’ll ask him about my cousin who is very sick and we’ll see what he’ll tell me. And he told the old man the name of his cousin. The old man told him exactly about the difficult situation of his cousin, that she needs divine mercy and everything about her without knowing her.

    The old man continued and said that you should know that Hashem hates licentiousness, and that what is going on in the army with male and female soldiers is no secret. That they are committing sins of sexual immorality, and that they are deliberately enlisting females into the army in order to cause the young men to sin and any jobs that female soldiers do in the army can be done by young men. And also that it is no secret that one of the purposes of the army is to secularize young Israeli men. It will not continue, Hashem hates licentiousness (Zenus).

    He left the young man without another word and got off the bus. The curious young man, who wanted to know where the old man lived, got off the bus after him, and the old man disappeared. They say he merited a revelation of Eliyahu HaNavi of blessed memory.

    It is brought in the book “Davar B’ito” (Everything in it’s time) about the month of Shvat, that on the 15th of Shvat there will be a full lunar eclipse. It is written in the book “Yalkut Moshe” that a lunar eclipse in the month of Shvat [is a sign of] stringent judgment on most of the world, and that day will be very dark.

    We have to wake up, Hashem is dealing with us with great kindness and is sending us faithful messengers that we may merit to wake up and prepare ourselves for the Geulah. We have a few days left to examine ourselves and to quickly strengthen ourselves and to change our behavior. To swap our tight clothing for modest clothing, for longer and wider skirts, long sleeves, wider shirts that are not so tight.

    Every married woman should cover her hair with a modest hair covering, not a foreign wig (foreign wig = foreign woman). To get rid of our impure devices with forbidden images!!! And are also a Bitul Torah!!! They are unnecessary in a Jewish house. To maintain our pure speech, to sit and learn Torah, to learn Halachot in order to be a Kosher person. And to increase acts of kindness – Chessed, and to judge everyone favorably. We must be Shomer Shabbat KeHilchatah 100%.

    May we all merit the revelation of Eliyahu HaNavi who comes to announce the arrival of Mashiach Tzidkeinu. And may we all merit to be united and receive the Mashiach with great mercy and kindness.

    When the Mashiach comes it will be to late to change! Don’t say we didn’t know and don’t say nobody told you. You have enough time NOW to do Teshuvah before Yom Hadin HaNorah.

  2. We’re almost in the middle of Shvat and not much time to see if the “old man” said truth, although he certainly said the truth about the army. In the meantime, it can’t hurt to do tshuva.
