Susan Rice Says Defending Israel Swallows Much of Her UN time

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Defending Israel’s legitimacy is a “huge part” of her work as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice told a Reform Judaism event Sunday evening.

“It’s a huge part of my work to the United Nations,” she said at the launching of this year’s social activists’ Consultation on Conscience, organized by the Religious Action Center.

She likened the volume of work to her efforts to coordinate Syria’s isolation and to contain violence and abuses in Sudan, and added that she often works in “lockstep” with the Israeli delegation.

“We will not rest in the crucial work of defending Israel’s security and legitimacy every day at the United Nations,” Rice said.

She noted that Israel’s success at the United Nations often is not reported, for instance in joining the boards of the U.N. Development Program and UNICEF, and in advancing development initiatives.

Rice at UN Security Council: Cessation of Violence Only Through Ceasefire

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

The UN Security Council session last night of the situation in the Gaza Strip ended at an impasse.

The United States opposed the approval of a statement that has no mention of Hamas rocket fire and Israel’s right to defend itself. U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said that the cessation of violence must be done through a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, sustainable agreement. She said it’s important that the Council’s initiative promote an agreed cessation of violence.
