"Your cause is our cause and your fight is our fight".
On the first day of his visit Monday, Pence told Israeli lawmakers the United States would open its embassy in Jerusalem in 2019 - becoming the first foreign nation to open an embassy in the city in nearly four decades.
The answer to this question lies in the religious motivations of President Trump's Evangelical electorate, whose convictions Vice President Mike Pence shares, to the extent, it is said, that he played a dominant influence on the USA decision. In it Pence announced that the United States embassy in Israel would be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem - whose staus is at the heart of any resolution to the conflict - by the end of next year.
Palestine's envoy to the United States has revealed a "blossoming friendship" between officials of the two countries, until President Donald Trump broke with worldwide consensus and formally recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December.

He said the move blundered burgeoning peace efforts and shattered Palestinian officials' trust in the United States administration.
"We did not understand where the delay was coming from". But there is no peace process right now as we speak.
The US president did not even stop there when he also expressed the view that US economic aid to the Palestinians would be suspended as long as the they shun peace talks with Israel.
Jonathan Sacks said his advice to Mike Pence was only on historical connections between Jews and Israel.
Pence said he was grateful to be representing Trump and that his decision to designate Jerusalem as the Israeli capital would "create an opportunity to move on in good faith negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority".
MCEVERS: OK, so we hear some applause there, but how was this received? Obviously, no Palestinian leader could sign to this. "Peace can only come through dialogue", he said.
"If it's a blame game, bring it on", the diplomat said. But in Jerusalem - there in the Israeli legislature, Pence got an extended standing ovation.
