WASHINGTON (AFP) -- US National Security Adviser Susan Rice will travel to Israel in May to head an American delegation for wide-ranging bilateral talks, the White House said Wednesday.

The announcement came two days after President Barack Obama met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House and they found themselves once again very publicly at odds as they discussed the sensitive issues of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and Iran's nuclear program.

"President Obama has asked National Security Adviser Susan Rice to travel to Israel in May to lead the US delegation to the US-Israel Consultative Group," a White House statement said.

"Ambassador Rice looks forward to her first visit to Israel as national security adviser to continue our strategic consultations on a wide range of bilateral and regional issues."

During their talks, Obama pushed for a decision on the peace process, while Netanyahu insisted Israel had done its part and said Iran is now the most urgent threat.

Much of her time at the UN was spent defending Israeli expansionism and its apartheid. When the UN General Assembly voted to upgrade Palestine to a non-member state, Rice denounced it with "This Resolution doesn't establish Palestine as a state," adding "..the US will continue to oppose firmly any & all unilateral

actions in international bodies." This woman has spent much of her career defending US militarism. One last quote:" We will not rest in the crucial work of defending Israel's security and legitimacy every day at the United Nations." April 2013 And this is the person who" in May will head the American delegation for wide-ranging bilateral talks." Let's see, the US has involved in the "peace talks" such objective non-partisans such as Martin Indyk & Dennis Ross.And now, ta dah, Susan Rice!
