UN Ambassador Nikki Haley: 'The Days of Israel-Bashing Are Over'

30 March, 2017, 01:54 | Author: Essie Rivera

During her remarks on Wednesday morning, Haley said she intends to focus on two areas when the USA assumes the rotating presidency of the U.N. Security Council next month: The role of human rights in national security and reforming the U.N.'s peacekeeping operations, including "winding down" the missions in Haiti-"It's not needed anymore"-Liberia and Ivory Coast". When she needs us, we will be there.

Last month, Haley issued a scathing criticism of the U.N. Security Council for their "breathtaking" double-standards and anti-Israel bias after emerging from her monthly meeting at the worldwide body. "But you're not going to take our number one democratic friend in the Middle East and beat up on them". There are a lot of threats to peace and security.

During a question-and answer segment at the day's final session, a Jewish student representing J Street U, the campus arm of the dovish pro-Israel lobby, asked how students can best oppose BDS on campus while also opposing Israel's occupation of the West Bank. Haley is credited with playing a key role in convincing Secretary General Antonio Guterres to withdraw a report authored by a longtime critic of Israel that accused it of apartheid.

Then last month Haley shocked diplomats when she blocked the appointment of former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to a senior United Nations post unrelated to Israel-Palestinian issues.

She spoke of having prevented the appointment of a Palestinian official, former Palestinian Authority prime minister Salam Fayyad, to a senior United Nations position, and noted that he may well be a nice man.

"I wear high heels, it's not for a fashion statement, it's because if I see something wrong I will kick it every single time". He called the blacklist effort "pure anti-Semitism" and said that "together with the USA, our greatest ally, we will keep fighting until BDS is eliminated".

As governor of South Carolina, Haley signed the first anti-BDS legislation to be made into law in any state capitol in America.

"And if things don't improve", she said, "we have to have the political will to adjust the mission, even if some countries and bureaucracies are going to lose funding in the process". "And a ridiculous report, the Falk report, came out".
