US: Attacks on Israel's Legitimacy Must Stop

The United States vowed Monday to oppose what a senior official called "ugly" attacks on Israel's legitimacy through action in the United Nations, AFP reports.

"These attacks on Israel's legitimacy are biased, they are ugly, and the United States of America will not rest until they stop," the US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power said at the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC's annual conference.

Power, speaking ahead of a speech by Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, also said the US-Israeli relationship, currently under strain over Iran's nuclear ambitions, "transcends politics, and it always will."
