Israel expects the “responsible” members of the international community to adamantly oppose Palestinian efforts to have the UN Security Council impose an Israeli-Palestinian agreement that skirts the needs for direct negotiations, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday.

Netanyahu's comments came at the top of a meeting with Indiana Governor Mike Pence, on the eve of the presentation to the UN Security Council of a Palestinian resolution calling for a full IDF withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines by 2017.

Netanyahu said that if the international community did not reject the Palestinian proposal, then Israel would. “Israel will oppose conditions that will endanger our future,” he said.

Netanyahu said that Israel and western civilization were under attack from Iran and Islamic radicals, and that this attack also included Palestinian efforts to impose a solution that would endanger Israel's security and place its future in danger.

The Republican Pence is the latest possible 2016 US presidential contender to visit Israel, following South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who was here over the weekend; likely Republican hopeful Ben Carson, who was here earlier this month; and Democratic Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who was here in November.

In addition to meeting Netanyahu, the Republican Pence – on a nine day visit to Israel, six of which were personal – also met Tuesday with Economy Minister Naphtali Bennett and discussed economic issues.

Prior to winning the Indiana gubernatorial race in 2012, Pence served for a dozen years in the House of representatives, where he established a record of strong support for Israel.
