Palestinian leaders are boycotting Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to Israel, refusing to meet with him in protest of the Trump administration’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and its plans to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Pence has already met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and is slated to speak to the Israeli parliament today. Arab members of Israel’s parliament are planning to boycott Pence’s address.
