The new American UN envoy is receiving warm praise from the pro-Israel community in both the US and abroad after taking the Security Council to task last week for its double standards when it comes to its treatment of the Jewish state.

Addressing reporters on Thursday after taking part for the first time in a monthly Security Council meeting on Middle East issues, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said, “I am here to underscore the ironclad support of the United States for Israel. I’m here to emphasize 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. Instead, we will push for action on the real threats we face in the Middle East.”

Anti-Israel bias at the UN, Haley declared, was “long overdue for change. The United States will not hesitate to speak out against these biases in defense of our friend and ally, Israel.”

The video of Haley’s statement went viral in pro-Israel circles around the world over the weekend. On Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — currently in the midst of a visit to Singapore and Australia — posted a link to the video on Facebook and said, “US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, thank you for your unequivocal support for Israel! It’s time to put an end to the absurdity in the United Nations.”

Later on Monday, Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon shared Netanyahu’s post and said, “Thank you Ambassador Nikki Haley, we are expecting to bring about together a new era at the UN!”

After meeting with Danon for the first time earlier this month, Haley said, “Never again will our allies have to question our support.”

  • Isn’t it funny that when the truth is spoken and moral clarity is reached it sounds so simple and refreshing you just have to wonder why it is so rarely found and even so commonly avoided. Nikki Haley’s voice rings the truth like a bell. All the trolls and ogres will howl and pound their fists. Let them.

    I like her new nickname ” Haley’s comet ” At long last a woman with cojones.

  • I am somewhat surprised at all the commotion regarding the U.N resolution 2334 (U.N. Resolutions which is non-binding and have no legal standing) which condemns Jewish Communities and Settlements in the West Bank aka Judea and Samaria. It should be noted Israel regained land and rebuilt communities previously taken from it illegally via the Defensive War of 1967 when it had to defend itself from an unprovoked attack from Jordan. If the U.N voted a resolution declaring the Vatican as Muslim territory, is anyone going to abide by it?

    According to my research, the U.N. Charter only provides for the recommendation(s) of a non-binding Resolution, with no legal standing. In fact, the U.N. has absolutely no legal standing or power to enforce any non-binding Resolution(s). Furthermore, it cannot be ignored that the U.N. has recommended hundreds of non-binding Resolutions against Israel with no legal, or factual standing to support said Resolutions. There is also the U.N. Article 51 which provides countries for defense against attack. The U.N, and the ICJ have no appeal process and that is against every Democratic law. Their opinions and non-binding resolutions are based on false information; there is no procedure to remedy the erroneous biased non-binding decisions which have no legal standing.

    The U.N. should be dismantled. It is not serving the purpose for which it was created and the funding of the U.N. could be put to better use.

    Israel is on solid legal and historical ground as far as its’ territorial boundaries west of the Jordan River. In fact, history proves Israel has both a legal and historical claim for a lot of land held by Jordan. See the January 1919 Faisal Weizmann Agreement. (Check British archives which provides evidence how the British defrauded the Jewish people of their complete Historical territory – See The Rape of Palestine by William Ziff)
    I think the U.S. should return the country back to the American Indians and Mexico. The European countries and others should return all the territories they took from other countries and so should other countries.

    The World at large has for thousands of years wrongfully and maliciously persecuted the Jews, confiscated and stole their assets including personal valuables, homes and Real Estate property. The world at large will try and push us around if we let them. It is time to put an end to such biased unjustified and deliberate persecution.

    All the distortions of history up to and including modern day, by biased nations relying upon deceptive, fictitious make-believe facts and wishful beliefs, must not be tolerated any more. While most of the biased world continues to unjustly assail Israel; the nation of Israel contributes to the world a substantial amount of advancement and technology in all fields, including medicine, energy, water desalination, IT, and much more.

    Today the Jewish State of Israel has the man-power and the resources to defend itself against most world powers. Thus, it is time for us Jews to become unified and stand up for ourselves as was done during the days of Moses, King David and King Solomon.

    We are supposed to be “a stubborn nation” (Am Kshey Oref). Let us utilize our “stubborn” resolve with a strong backbone steeled with our unwavering faith. If we stand our ground without capitulations, we might encounter some obstacles and suffer some set-backs. But in the long run we will be stronger and the world at large will respect us more.

    We must overcome the “Diaspora victim mentality” we have too easily accepted over thousands of years.
    It is time for all Jews worldwide to raise our heads, and steel our resolve as a proud nation with proud people.

    “Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean!”
