December 16, 2011 01:43

US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice has denounced the treatment that Israel receives at the UN as “obsessive, ugly, bad for the United Nations and bad for peace.”

In an address to the annual reception of the Conference of Presidents Fund on Wednesday, Rice reaffirmed US commitment to oppose any efforts to “chip away at Israel’s legitimacy.”

She praised the extensive US-Israel military intelligence cooperation, saying President Barack Obama “has been clear all along that our special relationship with Israel is deeply rooted in our common interests and our common values.”
