U.S. Will Stand Up to UN's anti-Israel Bias, U.S. Envoy Nikki Haley Says

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley blasted the UN for what she called its "anti-Israel bias" and vowed that she would not let the UN Security Council target Israel with one-sided condemnations.

"I am here to emphasize that the United States is determined to stand up to the UN's anti-Israel bias. We will never repeat the terrible mistake of Resolution 2334 and allow one-sided Security Council resolutions to condemn Israel. Instead, we will push for action on the real threats we face from the Middle East," she said.

"We stand for peace," she continued. "We support a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that is negotiated directly between the two parties, as President Trump reiterated in his meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu."

She also blasted the UN Security Council for focusing its efforts on the Palestinians while giving low priority to other issues, like Iran: "Incredibly, the UN Department of Political Affairs has an entire division devoted to Palestinian affairs … There is no division devoted to illegal missile launches from North Korea ... 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. 
"The double standards are breathtaking," she said.

Videos of her comments went viral, with diplomats, reporters and even Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sharing it online.


  1. As much as you dislike Trump, would you rather have Susan Rice or Haley as the ambassador?

  2. For the 1st time in a long time, I feel quite optimistic about Israel. I feel as if that we have achieved a greater level of independence as a nation - something we truly need. And yes, all this becuase of Trump or rtaher the Trumpian movement, who need us much more than we need them for thie own objectives. My prayer, however, is that we use this new found freedom wisely in a way that will truly improve security, prosperity and Torah values in Israel. And not squander it on stut.

  3. Haaretz twisted language, especially on racism: slaps it on cultural divisions or on safety but not on Arab Muslim racist attacks

    The "competetive" tantrum trend among hard Israeli left to utter the "racisn" terminology has been for some time.

    They are ever so loud on isolated cases of violent attacks against Arabs which we all condemn, of course.

    Yet, they are silent on every weekly attacks by racist Arabs targeting Jewish civilians (at times travelling for miles far away from own Arab town...). Of course it's Arab Muslim terrorism but it's also anti-Jewish ethnic racism and religious bigotry. 

    Yet, will term any Israeli security measure as "racist." As if it's "not" saving lives, what it is really about.

    Will minimize Arab Islamic Palestinian use of its own population as human shields (at least since 1980 by Arafat), and Israeli attempts to evacuate before an anti terror operation. 

    Will maximize exaggerate any claim of abuse.

    Incidentally, with all the heavily funded anti Israel groups in Israel. why isn't there any peace movement on the Arab Palestinian side, Hamas' Gaza or Fatah's Ramallah? 

    If one specific community wants to keep its unique education, they immediately cry "racism".

    They are silent on every Israeli court case that favors Arab vs Jew. But ever so loud on any partial-discriminatory incident. Despite the fact, it is rather ultra-orthodox who feel most all out discriminated against, mainly prompted by anti Religious hatred campaign by hard left like Haaretz.

    These supposed "peaceninks", these same hypocrites, incite against, demonize Haredi ultra Orthodox conscientious objectors who refuse to serve in IDF draft in Israeli army.

    Haaretz and the like, are not just biased. But hate mongers.
