Watch As Brawl Erupts During VP Pence's Speech Before Israel's Knesset

Less than two months after President Trump issued formal US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, unleashing a wave of protest among Palestinians as well as international outrage, Vice President Mike Pence is finally in the midst of his long awaited tour of the Middle East (specifically Israel, Jordan, and Egypt), which had been initially scheduled for December but canceled and pushed back due to increased unrest in the region.

After visiting Jordan, which included meeting with King Abdullah II where the two leaders "agreed to disagree" over the Jerusalem move, Pence addressed Israel's Knesset where he delivered a speech Monday afternoon. During the speech which Israel's Haaretz described as being "like an ecstatic sermon by an evangelist preacher traveling through the Holy Land" a scuffle broke out after Arab members of parliament began protesting and heckling the American vice president, holding up signs which read "Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine."

Footage capturing the incident shows over a dozen lawmakers from a political party called the Arab Joint List standing moments into Pence's speech and shouting him down while holding small signs. It appears security was waiting for some type of disruption as a large team of staff quickly grabbed for the signs while rushing the group from behind, to which the protesting parliament members pushed back and a brief brawl ensued.

The Arab lawmakers were forcibly removed from parliament and ultimately ejected from the building, accompanied by the applause of the chamber for their removal. It took some time for the assembly to calm down after what some media outlets described as a "chaotic scene" with brawling between the protesters and security personnel appearing to continue into the hallway. 

During the speech Pence reaffirmed Trump's commitment taking the next step's necessary to making the US recognition of Jerusalem a reality on the ground, saying "In the weeks ahead, our administration will advance its plan to open the United States Embassy in Jerusalem, and that United States Embassy will open before the end of next year [2019]." He further said, "Our president made his decision in the best interest of the United States,” and added, "The United States has chosen fact over fiction." 

Pence, an Evangelical Christian, peppered his speech heavily with Old Testament references throughout while pledging to "stand with Israel because we believe in right over wrong, in good over evil, and in liberty over tyranny."

He also called the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers "a disaster" and surprised his audience by declaring that the US would not re-certify the Iran deal when it comes up for renewal in May, virtually guaranteeing that the US will re-impose economic sanctions against the Iranian regime. Trump re-certified the deal earlier this month "for the last time", part of a deal with Democrats to buy them some time to work out a compromise.

Zechariah 12King James Version (KJV)

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

----

And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

"sodom and egypt, where our Lord was crucified"(jerusalem),  Revelation of Christ(KJV)   The Jerusalem talked about in Zechariah was referring to the heavenly Jerusalem made without hands. God is done with earthly Jerusalem as he had it destroyed in 70a.d. but people have been fighting over it ever since so it is indeed a burdensome stone in that it has no signifigance in God's Kingdom anymore. That is why it is referred to as sodom and egypt, and we all know what happened to sodom

The only thing that holds Trump back is his support for these criminals, we can only hope that Trump goes back on his word to these pathetic examples of paranoid interbreeding ethnic cleansers.

If Trump continues to support Zionism, and the US people still hold him dear, then the only thing that has been accomplished is changing out the Rockerfeller elitists for the Rothschild elitists.

Change from partial US corporate controlled government to completely foreign controlled government.

Explain this, my degenerated joofriend.

“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel.”

“In Israel, death has no dominion over them… With gentiles, it will be like any person – they need to die, but [God] will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money.

“This is his servant… That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew.”

“Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat… That is why gentiles were created.”

America must become just another country on the world stage before Israel will be brought to heel. Russia and China are working on that and many other countries are taking note. Much of Americas so called GDP is ponzinomics. It is sustained by financial engineering based on a fiat world reserve currency. What would happen to trade deficit America if they needed to earn specie money in order to trade with global trade partners? The trade deficit would matter then, big time. America, deeply infected by a desperate, cunning and efficient, parasite, had lost her founding values and her way and become a transparent hypocrite on the world stage.
