In a video address first obtained by Fox News this Tuesday, former Vice President Mike Pence slammed the Biden administration for attempting to create a “false equivalency” between Israel and Hamas, saying that he and former President Donald Trump “set the table for lasting peace and an end to the decades-old conflict in the region,” but that President Biden has only offered “weakness and ambivalence” in response to the latest round of fighting.
“We witnessed four years of progress toward peace, now shattered by more than a week of unprovoked violence against the people of Israel,” Pence said.
Pence said the former administration’s “commitment to Israel was unrivaled,” and that the Biden administration’s “failures” in the region are responsible for Hamas’ aggression.
“We made that clear to the world through our actions,” Pence added.
“But from the moment President Biden took office, all that changed, and the results have reignited violence,” he said. “Weakness arouses evil.”
“Instead of seeking peace through strength, President Biden has offered weakness and ambivalence and, tragically, our friends in Israel are paying a terrible price,” Pence said, saying Biden restored funding to the Palestinian Authority and signaled a willingness to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal.
