Mike Pence Torched In Israel For Treating Jerusalem Like An ‘End-Of-Days Biblical Theme Park’

The founder of a Jerusalem-based NGO slammed Vice President Mike Pence for treating his city like an “end-of-days Biblical theme park” during his visit to Israel this week.

Daniel Seidemann, an Israeli attorney who founded Terrestrial Jerusalem, criticized the Vice President for not visiting any members of Jerusalem’s Christian community during his trip to the Middle East this week, saying it’s primarily because those leaders are Palestinians.

“This is especially ironic,” Seidemann wrote on Twitter, because Pence is widely known for being a devout Christian.

“The most uber-Christian national leader the US has ever known can’t get meetings with Holy Land Christians of ANY denomination,” he says. “He did not visit…
one Christian site [or] one Muslim site. He saw nothing of Palestinian Jerusalem.”

Seidemann went on to tie Pence’s avoidance of meeting Palestinian Christians with the evangelical Christian belief that it is necessary for Israelis to completely retake the city of Jerusalem before Jesus Christ returns to herald the end of the world.

“The Jerusalem that Pence visited does not exist, but rather an ‘end-of-days’ Biblical theme park version of the city,” he continues. “The pageant Jerusalem and the world witnessed during the Pence visit was a meeting between a prominent leader of the ‘end-of-days’ evangelical cult and its Israeli sister settler cult — cults that now dominate the governance of their respective countries. That’s not Jerusalem.”
