Mike Pence’s visit to Jerusalem was an unqualified disaster. First he made a speech at the Knesset last Monday that was characterized as a “tent revival sermon” by the Israeli press, and Pence himself was called “Horseman of the Trumpocalypse.” He was accused of not being in touch with the basic nature of where he was really at, instead living in his own fantasy of where he thought he was at. The head of an Israeli non governmental organization said, “The Jerusalem that Pence visited does not exist, but rather [Pence visited] an ‘end-of-days’ Biblical theme park.”

To this mess, add the fact that Pence, ever the evangelical, committed yet another faux pas on International Holocaust Remembrance Day by sending a twitter greeting characterizing the Holocaust in “Christ imagery’ terms. Haaretz:

“Angry replies to his tweet charged that Pence, an evangelical Christian, imposed – consciously or unconsciously – a Christian religious narrative on the tragedy that was disrespectful to the Jews who perished. Critics described it as ‘shameful’ and ’tone-deaf.’

”One wrote: “Are you referring to my Jewish relatives who died or survived in the Holocaust or did we become embroiled into some sort of Jesus analogy?” Another called Pence’s use of the term resurrection “a Christian-tinged euphemism as the word is rarely used out of that specific context” and accused him of “glossing over the fact that they were murdered by saying they were resurrected, just like the Jesus he claims to believe in.“
