Many ambassadors might be two-faced and conveniently “forget” their promises but Nikki Haley is not one of those diplomats. Haley stands up for the US and doesn’t allow a country to get a free pass when there is a conflict between them.
During a UN Security Council Haley once again laid down the law and addressed the elephant in the room. She called out the romanticized Palestinians that have risen up against the Israelites over Jersulam being named the new Capital. She called them terrorists.
“They light Molotov Cocktails attached to kites on fire and attempt to fly them into Israel to cause as much destruction as possible. When asked yesterday why he put a swastika on his burning kite. The terrorist responded, “The Jews go crazy when you mention Hitler.” This is what is endangering the people of Gaza. Make no mistake Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday. I ask my colleagues here in The Security Council, Who among us would accept this type of activity on your border? No one would. No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel Has.”

But she was not done as she had only talked about the symptoms not one of the primary causes Iran. Haley claimed that the UN is overlooking Iran’s misconduct.
“There is far too little discussion in the Security Council on Iran’s destabilizing presence in Syria. It’s promotion of violence in Yemen, it’s support for terrorism in Gaza, and it’s dangerous and illegal weapons build up in Lebanon. However, in the minds of some today’s meeting was not called to discuss any of those examples of violence in The Middle East. Today’s meeting was called to discuss the violence that some suggest was connected with yesterday’s opening of the United States Embassy in Jerusalem.”
So maybe the now the UN could start focusing on the root of the problem.
