The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the leading Israeli lobby in the US, commended US President Barack Obama for asserting in his speech to the UN General Assembly on Wednesday that genuine peace can only come about as a result of direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians and “not through statements and resolutions at the U.N.”

A statement released by the organization on Wednesday said: "AIPAC appreciates the President’s 'unshakeable' commitment to Israel’s security and his clear statements outlining the daily dangers and strategic threats facing Israel. President Obama demonstrated his understanding of Israel’s legitimate requirements when he stated that the Jewish people – in their historic homeland – deserve recognition and normal relations with their neighbors."
