Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will deliver remarks to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) today.

Earlier this month, Israel announced it would build 1,600 new housing units in East Jerusalem. The announcement threw a monkey wrench into planned peace talks between Israel and Palestine.

The BBC reports that Clinton's prepared statement for today's AIPAC meeting reads that sticking with the status quo in the Middle East is unsustainable for all sides. "There is another path--a path that leads toward security and prosperity for all the people of the region. It will require all parties including Israel to make difficult but necessary choices."

Clinton also will make a statement to the group about Iran. Her remarks read that Iran's leaders must know there are "real consequences" for Iran if they do not prove their nuclear activities are peaceful, according to The Associated Press.
