Jonathan Sacks says he advised the US vice-president only on links between Jews and Israel
A former chief rabbi of the UK, Jonathan Sacks, has defended his role in a controversial speech delivered in Israel this week by the US vice-president, Mike Pence.
Pence made a two-day visit to Israel, the highlight of which was a speech at the country’s parliament, the Knesset, in which he announced the date of moving the American embassy to Jerusalem. Arab-Israeli legislators were thrown out of the Knesset after heckling the vice-president.
