“Never again will our allies have to question our support,” new US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley vowed this weekend, after meeting for the first time with her Israeli counterpart, Danny Danon.

In a statement published on her Facebook page, Haley said she and Danon had a “great meeting,” at which they discussed the “strong” US-Israel relationship.

In response, Danon tweeted, “Welcome to the @UN Amb @nikkihaley. Looking forward to a new era of close Isr-US cooperation.”

New Jersey Superintendent ‘Saddened and Outraged’ After Swastika, Antisemitic Message Found in High School Bathrooms

A New Jersey district superintendent said he was "saddened and outraged" after a swastika and antisemitic message were found in two bathrooms...

At her Senate confirmation hearing last month, Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, said the US “must let Israel know we are an ally and will be an ally.”

Haley called the UN Security Council’s passage in December of an anti-settlement resolution — which was enabled by an Obama administration abstention — a “terrible mistake” that would make an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal “even harder to achieve.”

In a statement released on the day of Haley’s hearing, Danon said, “We thank Ambassador-designate Haley, a true friend of Israel, for her unequivocal support and her clear statement regarding the UN’s discrimination against Israel. We look forward to working together with her to undo the damage done by the shameful Security Council resolution, and to lead towards a new era at the UN which includes real reforms that will put an end to the biased obsession with Israel.”

    Sadly there will never be a two state solution for Israel and the Arabs. Arabs do not want a 2 state solution they want a One State volition that excludes Israel. Hatred make things so much easier for Arabs as they just want one thing and that is the end of Israel and all Jews and Christians.

    We need to stop funding the damn UN altogether!!!!

  • Yes, “never again”, as long as Ambassador Haley is at the UN. The future is uncertain, and if leftwing ideologues occupy the White House on 1.20.2021, the Americans might abstain from future UN Anti-Israel resolutions.

    “a “terrible mistake” that would make an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal “even harder to achieve.”
    That was the US SD prescription. This has been going on for 100 years. Private interests run the SD and not US interests!
