Op-ed in official PA daily: Mike Pence is trying to "incite winds of war and death… as a prelude to the appearance of Jesus."

Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: "Pence the pirate"

"US Vice President Evangelist Mike Pence concluded his visit to the states of the region with a visit to the Israeli colonialist state on Sunday evening [Jan. 21, 2018]…
From an examination of the aspects of the visit, including the statements and the despicable American speech in the Israeli Parliament, it can be seen that Pence is from among the most right-wing and Zionist ruling group in the administration of [US President Donald] Trump, and he surpasses the Zionist Jews [Trump's Senior Advisor Jared] Kushner, [US Ambassador to Israel David] Friedman, and [Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason] Greenblatt in his coordination and solidarity with the policies and actions of the extremist right-wing coalition that rules in Israel. In this criminal act, he not only contradicts the policies of the previous American administrations, but also the decisions of the international bodies and the sources of authority of the peace process. This is not just due to colonialist economic and financial motives to serve the American businesses and interests, but also in order to incite winds of war and death among the peoples and states of the region in order to hasten the arrival of Armageddon as a prelude to the appearance of Jesus.
At this point, the natural religious missionary spirit dissipates and the spirit of Satan and the American pirate – the robber of roads, seas, and oceans – appears. This is because Pence and the rest of the Evangelists, in contrast to the Anglicans, do support war and colonialism, despite them being basically part of one church, which is the Anglican Church. However, this church has split into two groups, one of which – to which Mike Pence and his President Trump belong – supports war and colonialism. On the other hand, the Anglican Church has declared its opposition to Trump's statement about recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Therefore, the American vice president, in his declared positions, worrisome enthusiasm about transferring the US embassy to Jerusalem, and unlimited support of the Israeli ethnic cleansing state reflects the trend and policies of the extremist supporters of war throughout the entire world, and particularly in the region."

US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel - On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and instructed the State Department to begin preparations to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump added that the final borders of Jerusalem will be determined during negotiations.
