Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley continues to be a shining light when it comes to defending Israel in hostile territory. As last week's decision to move the capital of Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem sparked outrage and threats of violence against Israel, Haley reminded obstructionists that unfair bias against the Israelis will have consequences.
On Friday, Haley ripped into those who threaten to use the decision as a pretext for violence, and the U.N. for its "Israel-bashing sessions ..."
"To those who do not act in good faith – to any person, leader, country, or terrorist group that uses this week’s decision as a pretext for violence – you are only showing yourselves to be unfit partners of peace," remarked Haley before laying into the U.N. for their evident bias and mistreatment of Israel.
Finally, I will not let this moment pass without a comment about the United Nations itself. Over many years, the United Nations has outrageously been of the world’s foremost centers of hostility towards Israel. The UN has done much more to damage the prospects for Middle East peace than to advance them. We will not be a party to that. The United States no longer stands by when Israel is unfairly attacked in the United Nations. And the United States will not be lectured to by countries that lack any credibility when it comes to treating both Israelis and Palestinians fairly.
