After attending her first monthly meeting with the U.N. Security Council, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley described it as “a bit strange.” “There was no mention of Hezbollah’s illegal buildup of rockets in Lebanon, it was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists, it was not about ISIS,” Haley said. “No, instead the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East.”
I’m here to say the United States will not turn a blind eye to this anymore. I’m here to underscore the ironclad support of the United States for Israel. I’m here to emphasize the United States is determined to stand up tot he UN’s anti-Israel bias. We will never repeat the terrible mistake of Resolution 2334 and allow one-sided Security Council resolution to condemn Israel. Instead we will push for action on the real threats we face in the Middle East.”
From a NYSun editorial entitled “Haley’s Comet”:
“Incredibly,” Mrs. Haley said, “the U.N. department of political affairs has an entire division devoted entirely to Palestinian affairs. Imagine that. There is no division devoted to illegal missile launches form North Korea. There is no division devoted to the world’s number one state sponsor of terror, Iran. The prejudiced approach to Israeli-Palestinian issues does the peace process no favors, and it bears no relationship to the reality of the world around us. The double standards are breathtaking.”
The ambassador warned that it is “the U.N.’s anti-Israel bias that is long overdue for change,” and said America will not hesitate to speak out in defense of its friend in Israel. All this was going on while the press was questioning President Trump on what he was going to do about anti-Semitism. If his ambassador to the world body is any example, the answer is plenty. She has the principles of a Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the grit of a John Bolton, and the star power of a Jeane Kirkpatrick, and in her first press briefing she certainly made her point.
Ambassador Haley said this type of meeting has been going on “for decades” so our first question should be, why haven’t any other of America’s U.N. ambassadors told us this before?
All of us at PolitiChicks are deeply grateful Ambassador Haley had the courage to peel back the curtain and give us a glimpse of what the U.N. is really all about. This is truly frightening.
