Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull offered a staunch defense of Israel Wednesday, criticizing the United Nations and vowing never to support "one-sided resolutions" calling for an end to Israeli settlement building on occupied land.Turnbull welcomed Benjamin Netanyahu Wednesday as the first Israeli prime minister to visit Australia and reiterated Australia's support for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian crisis.However, he also made it clear Australia would not support any resolutions such as the one approved by the United Nations Security Council in December calling for an end to Israeli settlement building on land occupied by Palestinians.Netanyahu said any solution would need Palestine to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, which would also have security control of the territories.
