JERUSALEM (Israel): United States (US) vice president Mike Pence, addressed the Israeli Knesset, the unicameral parliament, on Monday, whereat he declared, “I have a solemn promise from me to all of Israel: the US will never allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon” backtracking “The Iran nuclear deal is a disaster and the US will no longer certify this ill-conceived agreement;” an official statement said.

According to detail, he said, “As we work to defeat the scourge of terrorism, and give aid to those who have suffered at its hands, we must also be resolved and vigilant to prevent old adversaries from gaining any new ground.”

Pence barked, “To that end, the US will continue to work with Israel, and with nations across the world, to confront the leading State sponsor of terror, “the Islamic republic of Iran.”

He joked, “As the world has seen once again, the brutal regime in Iran is merely a brutal dictatorship that seeks to dominate its citizens and deny them of their most fundamental rights” adding “History has proven, those who dominate their own people rarely stop there” asserting “And increasingly, we see Iran seeking to dominate the wider Arab world.”

Pence exaggerated, “That dangerous regime sows chaos across the region” alleging “Last year alone, even as its citizens cried out for help with basic necessities, Iran devoted more than $4 billion to malign activities in Syria, Lebanon, and elsewhere across the region.”

He alleged, “It has supported terrorist groups that even now sit on Israel’s doorstep” joking “And worst of all, the Iranian regime has pursued a clandestine nuclear program, and at this very hour is developing advanced ballistic missiles.”

Pence recalled, “Two-and-a-half years ago, the previous US administration signed a deal with Iran that merely delays the day when that regime can acquire a nuclear weapon” backtracking “The Iran nuclear deal is a disaster, and the US will no longer certify this ill-conceived agreement.”

He bragged, “At US president Donald Trump’s direction, we are working to enact effective and lasting restraints on Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs” reminding “Earlier this month, the president waived sanctions on Iran to give the congress and our European allies time to pass stronger measures.”

Pence warned, “But as president Trump made clear, this is the last time” declaring “Unless the Iran nuclear deal is fixed, president Trump has said the US will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal immediately.”

He claimed, “Whatever the outcome of those negotiations, today I have a solemn promise to Israel, to all the Middle East, and to the world: The US will never allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon” conceiving “Beyond the nuclear deal, we will no longer tolerate Iran’s support of terrorism, or its brutal attempts to suppress its own people.”

Pence bragged, “Last year, our administration more than tripled the number of sanctions targeting Iran and its leaders” stressing “And just this month, the United States issued tough new sanctions on Iran.”

He promised, “But I have another message today, a better message, from the people of America to the proud and great people of Iran: We are your friends, and the day is coming when you will be free from the evil regime that suffocates your dreams and buries your hopes” asserting “And when your day of liberation finally comes, we say to the good people of Iran, the friendship between our peoples will blossom once again.”

Pence said, “Radical Islamic terrorism knows no borders; targeting America, Israel, nations across the Middle East, and the wider world” adding “It respects no creed; stealing the lives of Jews, Christians, and especially Muslims” profiting “And radical Islamic terrorism understands no reality other than brute force.”

He mentioned, “Together with our allies, we will continue to bring the full force of our might to drive radical Islamic terrorism from the face of the Earth.”
