The U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations castigates the UN for its “outrageous” Israel policy
The former South Carolina governor held nothing back in a speech about President Trump’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to move the U.S. embassy there.
“Israel will never be, and should never be, bullied into an agreement by the United Nations,” Haley said.
And then she pulled out all the stops:
And 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 at the world’s foremost centers of hostility towards Israel.
The U.N. has done much more damage to 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.
