JERUSALEM (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday said the world must stand strong against “a vile tide of anti-Semitism” sweeping the world, and singled out Iran as a main perpetrator.

“We must be prepared to confront and expose the vile tide of anti-Semitism that is fuelling hate and violence all across the world and we must stand together,” Pence told an audience of world leaders during a Holocaust memorial forum in Jerusalem.

“In that same spirit, we must also stand strong against the leading state purveyor of anti-Semitism, against the one government in the world that denies the Holocaust as a matter of state policy and threatens to wipe Israel off the map. The world must stand strong against the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he said.
