USA UN ambassador denounces Security Council’s anti-Israel bias

During her first press conference, Nikki Haley stated that the UN has “breathtaking double standards” with Israel, but the US  “will not turn a blind eye to this anymore.”

The recently appointed US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, offered her first press conference on Monday, where she showed the radical change in her country's position on Israel and criticised the way the United Nations treats Israel.



She made her comments to the press shortly after attending her first regular monthly meeting on Middle East issues, which she said it “was a bit strange.”



 



“THE ONLY TRUE DEMOCRACY IN THE MIDDLE EAST”



“The discussion was not about Hizballah’s illegal build-up of rockets in Lebanon. It was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists. It was not about how we defeat ISIS. It was not about how we hold Bashar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of hundreds and thousands of civilians. No, instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East”, Haley explained.



According to her, the United Sates does not agree with that behaviour, so that her country “will not turn a blind eye to this anymore. I am here to underscore the ironclad support of the United States for Israel.”



 



“STAND UP TO THE UN’S ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS



“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”, the ambassador affirmed



Haley lamented that “the outrageously biased resolutions from the Security Council and the General Assembly only make peace harder to attain by discouraging one of the parties from going to the negotiating table.”



 



“BREATHTAKING DOUBLE STANDARDS”



“The double standards are breathtaking”, she pointed out, explaining that after a terrorist attack in Israel, although “the Security Council would not hesitate to condemn an attack like that in any other country, the statement was blocked. And that’s downright shameful.”



The US ambassador concluded her press conference stating that “the United States will not hesitate to speak out against these biases in defense of our friend and ally, Israel.”

We finally have someone not afraid to stand up and speak out. Maybe someday this woman will be the first female president of the US.
