JTA Reports: Speaking at the AIPAC Policy Conference, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, discussed the importance of stopping the campaign against Israel at the world body.
“Nobody is above fair criticism. But what Israel faces is something very different. It’s relentless, it’s obsessive, it’s ugly. It’s bad for the United Nations, it’s bad for peace and it has got to stop,” Rice said at a session for Jewish religious leaders.
Rice used her speech to highlight what she called “the principles” and “commitment” of the United States to fight for Israel’s safety and security at the United Nations.
“Not a day goes by-not one when my colleagues and I do not work hard to defend Israel’s security and legitimacy at the United Nations,” Rice said.
