US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has told Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that she opposes a UN-brokered solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, pledging to fight efforts to “delegitimize” the Tel Aviv regime.

The former US secretary of state and Netanyahu met at a hotel in Manhattan, New York, on Sunday evening, hours after the Israeli PM’s meeting with Clinton’s Republican rival, Donald Trump.

During the meeting, Clinton endorsed the two-state solution for the ongoing conflict in Palestine, but also expressed “her opposition to any attempt by outside parties to impose a solution,” including the UN Security Council, her campaign said in a statement.

Clinton doubled down on “her commitment to countering attempts to delegitimize Israel, including through the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement,” the statement further read.

The BDS movement was initiated in 2005 by over 170 Palestinian organizations that were pushing for “various forms of boycott against Israel until it meets its obligations under international law.”

Since then, thousands of volunteers worldwide have joined the BDS to help promote the Palestinian cause.

The former first lady also backed Washington’s military support for Tel Aviv, saying that a “strong and secure Israel” was vital to the US.

Washington has been providing the Israeli regime with $3.1 billion annually since 2007, under a 10-year agreement with the administration of former president George W. Bush. The figure was recently raised to $3.8 billion for the next decade.

Earlier in the day, Netanyahu went to the Trump Tower in New York City to meet with the billionaire businessman.

During the 90-minute meeting, Trump promised Netanyahu that he will “recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the state of Israel,” the candidate’s campaign said in a statement.

He described East Jerusalem al-Quds, occupied by Israel since 1967, as “the eternal capital of the Jewish people.”

Like Clinton, Trump backed America’s military support for Israel, hailing it as an “excellent investment for America.”

Netanyahu, who was being accompanied by Israeli ambassador to Washington Ron Dermer during the meetings, thanked both candidates for their “friendship and support for Israel.”

  1. Supporting nazis means being a nazi!

    Supporting war-criminals means being a war-criminal!

    Supporting a government that endorses individuals to raise their right-hand in the nazi-salute means endorsing raising the right-hand in a nazi-salute!

    Supporting a government that massacres innocent people means massacring innocent people!

    Supporting a country which government supports the waving of the swastika-flag in he streets means waving the swastika-flag yourself!

    Supporting a country which government defends the killers of their ancestors means defending the killers of millions of Jewish people, in fact defending the gassing of millions of innocent people!

    Hillary Clinton supports nazis, war-criminals, swastika-waving right-wing terrorists, and defends the killers of millions of Jewish people by the national-socialists!

    Boycott Hillary Clinton!
