Jerusalem isn't a settlement, PM to tell AIPAC

Hours after Clinton tried to convey reconciliatory tone, Netanyahu expected to stress his view on status of Israel's capital. National Infrastructure Minister Landau tells Pro-Israel lobby that world needs to invest in oil alternatives

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to say that Jerusalem is not a settlement in the annual AIPAC conference in Washington on Monday. Netanyahu will address negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians and the relations with the US during his speech.


The prime minister is also expected to comment on the Iranian nuclear threat, and say that a nuclear Iran may bring about the end of the nuclear peace age the world has enjoyed these past 65 years.


National Infrastructure Minister Uzi Landau spoke before the Pro-Israel lobby on Monday and said that Israel could serve as the Middle East's oil alternatives center. He linked the investment in oil alternatives to the war on global terror.


The minister added that the huge amount of oil revenues serve as an enormous financial source which spurs on Islamic terror.


Earlier Monday, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke at the AIPAC conference and tried to convey an reconciliatory tone in the face of the diplomatic crisis with Israel.


She criticized the Palestinians and noted that the Obama administration is committed to Israel's security, but also stressed that the Israeli government is facing difficult choices.
