Pence Pounces on Obama for "Bullying" Israel

Bravo to Mike Pence.

The Indiana Republican yesterday blasted President Obama for his administration's posture towards Israel. “The time has come for this administration to stop bullying Israel," Pence said.

Pence, who is the number three Republican in the House behind John Boehner and Eric Cantor, also said, “I never thought I’d live to see the day that an American administration would denounce the Jewish State of Israel for rebuilding Jerusalem." He rejected the notion that housing construction in East Jerusalem was an affront to the United States let alone the peace process.

Pence made his statements before meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Of course, Netanyahu also met with President Obama yesterday in a private meeting.
