"Stop bullying Israel" and focus on Iran
The number three Republican in the House of Representatives today told reporters, "I never thought I'd live to see the day that an American administration would denounce the Jewish state of Israel for rebuilding Jerusalem."
Pence is a strong supporter of Israel and his remarks came just before a bipartisan meeting with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Speaking of bipartisanship, Pence mentioned that he has penned a letter with Democrat Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. asking President Obama to focus more attention on Iran's quest to make nuclear weapons. The letter is expected to be released by American pro-Israel lobby group AIPAC later this week.
