Nikki Haley Blasts United Nations For Being Outrageously Hostile Towards Israel
Firebrand U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley blasted the inept organization’s past treatment of Israel on Friday in her defense of President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.
Given that the United Nations consists mostly of nations who have vowed to destroy Israel, that’s not particularly surprising.
It is however, a strong indicator of how far Islam has spread across the globe.
“Over many years the United Nations has outrageously been of the world’s foremost centers of hostility towards Israel,” Haley said, according to CNN, during an emergency Security Council meeting called in response to Trump’s declaration this week.
“The U.N. has done much more damage to the prospects of Middle East peace than to advance them. We will not be a party to that,” she continued.
The U.S. no longer stands by when Israel is unfairly attacked in the United Nations,” she said.
“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.”
Haley’s comments come two days after Trump announced the U.S. would officially recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital reports The Hill.
Trump’s move has sparked the backlash from members of the international community, which largely recognize Tel Aviv as the country’s capital.
President Trump expected this backlash, given the Islamic world’s well-known history of being offended at the slightest perceived offense.
The decision has also stirred unrest among Palestinians, who have viewed East Jerusalem as a capital of a future Palestinian state.
Haley said on Wednesday that the president would not decide who controls that portion of the city.
“That’s for the two sides to decide,” Haley said. “That’s not for the United States to decide.”
