Democratic Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton addressed AIPAC's annual policy conference in Washington DC on Monday, saying that the turmoil of the Middle East poses great challenges to the US, but abandoning America's responsibilities in the region and its allies such as Israel is not an option.

Clinton told the US's largest Israel lobby that Iran's aggression, the rise of extremism and the growing effort to delegitimize Israel on the world stage are converging to make the US-Israel alliance more necessary than ever.

"The US and Israel must be closer than ever, stronger than ever and more determined than ever to go against our common adversaries and advance our common values," she said.

Clinton said this was particularly so given the current wave of terror plaguing Israel. "These attacks must end immediately and Palestinian leaders need to stop incing violence, celebrating terrorists as martyrs and stop paying rewards to their families."
