US ambassador to UN pledges American loyalty to Israel

NEW YORK – In an address given at the World Affairs Council in Portland, Oregon on Friday evening, US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice pledged American loyalty to Israel at the UN, saying that “efforts to chip away at Israel’s legitimacy will continue to be met by the frontal opposition of the United States.”           
“Many others lament that the UN is too focused on singling out Israel,” Rice said. “On that, they’re right. UN members devote disproportionate attention to Israel and consistently adopt biased resolutions, which too often divert attention from the world’s most egregious human rights abuses.”
Rice said she works at her job to “ensure that Israel’s legitimacy is beyond dispute and its security is never in doubt.”
