TOP PRO ISRAEL EVANGELICAL LEADER RESPONDS TO OUTRAGE OVER COMMENTS BY VP PENCE ON INTERNATIONAL HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY TWEET
(NEW YORK, NEW YORK) – January 29, 2018 --In New York for meetings at the UN, Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder and President of pro-Israel advocacy group, Proclaiming Justice To The Nations, responded sharply today to the criticism being leveled at Vice-President Mike Pence for his weekend Twitter message acknowledging January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
The Vice President tweeted a video of he and Mrs. Pence laying a wreath last week at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem, noting in his message: “A few days ago Karen and I paid our respects at Yad Vashem to honor the 6 million Jewish martyrs of the Holocaust who 3 years after walking beneath the shadow of death, rose up from the ashes to resurrect themselves and reclaim a Jewish future.”
A recognized evangelical Christian leader in the fight against the “new” anti-Semitism being seen globally, Cardoza-Moore was quick to come to the defense of the Vice-President whose critics are today calling his comments, “shameful, tone deaf, insensitive to Jews and glossing over the murder of millions of Jews.”
She noted today: "I stand amazed at the depths the Trump Haters will stoop to over Vice President Pence's use of the word 'resurrection' to describe the people of Israel's rebirth in their Biblical homeland Had these critics only read their Bible they would know we are privileged to be living in the most biblically historic and prophetic time in history. Vice President Pence was only referencing what the prophets foretold about this period of the ingathering of the exiles to their ancient homeland.”
“There should be nothing offensive to Jews or Christians who believe in the fulfillment of these prophecies. Vice President Pence was stating a fact that the Jewish people have been brought back to their land by Almighty God as the prophets of Israel prophesied in the Torah. This prophecy, including Isaiah, and the Psalms, occurred after the Jewish people were almost wiped from the face of the Earth by the Nazis, the modern day Amalek. The definition of 'resurrection' is 'the action or fact of resurrecting or being ‘resurrected’. This shouldn't offend anyone that knows his or her Tanach (Hebrew Bible). If we can learn anything from this episode, it is that those who hate Trump and Pence need a lesson in the Bible before they make such uninformed comments,.” she concluded.
