After Vice President Mike Pence's extraordinary and historic speech in the Knesset on January 22nd, I could not help but think how far we have come from only one year ago. It was a breath of fresh air. I also could not help imagining how different it would be if Hillary Clinton was "President" Clinton instead of also-ran Hillary Clinton.

The Jewish People have to thank President Donald J. Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence for becoming the best dynamic duo, Israel has ever had in the White House. As Vice President Mike Pence so eloquently said, "I am the first Vice President of the United States to be afforded that privilege(of addressing the Knesset) here in Jerusalem, the capital of the State of Israel." The Vice President went on further to say, " And I bring greetings from a leader who has done more to bring our two great countries closer together than any President in the past 70 years-the 45th President of the United States of America, President Donald Trump." The bond between both the President , the Vice President and the State of Israel began many years ago but really got going in earnest soon after the election on Nov. 8th, 2016.

President Obama was determined at the end of his Presidency to ram a statehood resolution through the United Nations for Mahmoud Abbas. This was done so that Hillary Clinton who was part and parcel of this methodology could start off her Presidency with the UN Declaration of a PLO Terrorist State behind her. She would then apply the screws on Israel and force Israel to pre-1967 borders (perhaps with some slight modifications) and the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Jews from Judea and Samaria. She was planning to stop all charity from America destined to projects in Judea and Samaria. She would have been an unmitigated disaster for the State of Israel.

Her lengthy harangue and screaming at Prime Minister Netanyahu on 9/12/12 when she was Secretary of State would have been child's play compared to what she would be doing as President. John Kerry's recent collusion with Mahmoud Abbas to oppose President Trump's declaration on Jerusalem is a case in point. It is people like John Kerry and Hillary Clinton who prevent Peace by painting a false narrative to Mahmoud Abbas and his cohorts. On the Iran Deal which President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry orchestrated, Hillary Clinton was in total agreement. This deal alone is an existential threat to Israel.

This was a strong enough reason not to vote for Hillary Clinton as any. It is important to quote Vice President Pence again at this juncture to show the utter and profound contrast, "Unless the Iran Nuclear Deal is fixed, President Trump has said the United States will withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal immediately." "President" Clinton would be singing the deal's praises throughout her term. By the time Hillary Clinton finished her "Presidency", Iran would have enough nuclear bombs and enough ballistic missiles to destroy both Israel and America.

  Hillary Clinton used the UNRWA money to help the "Arab Spring" which brought the Muslim Brotherhood to power. Both President Obama and Hillary Clinton were in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood running Egypt and much of the Muslim World. President Trump on the other hand has boosted anti-Muslim Brotherhood Leaders like Al- Sisi of Egypt, removed funding from UNESCO, reduced funding to UNRWA, and threatened to defund the United Nations.

Hillary Clinton would have built up all of these agencies and institutions. As soon as President Trump took office he prevented the United Nations from declaring statehood for the PLO. Resolution 2334 which was the forerunner of a statehood resolution was forced through by President Obama against the wishes of President Trump. However, President Trump prevented a Statehood Declaration planned for Paris on January 15th, 2017 in concert with Theresa May of Great Britain sending a low level delegation there.

To once again refer back to Vice President Pence's riveting and brilliant speech in the Knesset, he said,"we stand with Israel because your cause is our cause, your values are our values, and your fight is our fight." One could not say it better. If Hillary Clinton were President, Jerusalem would be a divided city. She would never even have thought to move America's Embassy there for fear of upsetting the Muslim World. If she were President every day would be unpredictable for the State of Israel. Thank G-d, President Trump and Vice President Pence were elected instead.
