“The days of Israel-bashing are over,” US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley vowed on Monday. “For anyone who says you can’t get anything done at the UN, they need to know there is a new sheriff in town.”

Haley’s remarks at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual policy conference were interrupted several times by enthusiastic standing ovations from the thousands-strong crowd at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC.

“I’m not there to play games and what I wanted to make sure of is that the United States started leading again,” Haley said of her UN role.

The Trump administration, Haley stated, is “putting everyone on notice” at the UN.

“I wear heels, it’s not for a fashion statement, it’s because if I see something wrong we’re gonna kick ’em every time,” she said.

Referring to the UN’s anti-Israel bias, Haley noted, “I knew they said it was bad, but until you hear it and you see it, you just can’t comprehend.”

Haley called the Obama administration’s abstention from the December 2016 UN Security Council vote on the anti-Israeli settlement Resolution 2334 “embarrassing” and “hurtful.”

“Everyone at the United Nations is scared to talk to me about Resolution 2334,” she said. “That happened, but it will never happen again.”

The former South Carolina governor pledged there would be “no more freebies” for the Palestinian Authority until it returned to the negotiating table.

The ambassador also criticized the July 2015 Iran nuclear deal, saying all it did was “empower” the Tehran regime. “Why that was ever passed is beyond me,” she added.

    Actually, after reading what I did, I will be writing the president. Israel does not represent Judaism and any Jew defending the state, is lying to themselves.

    Nikki Haley could not be more thought of and received if she were a liberator of one of the extermination camps…. We should be thankful that someone in her position is attempting surgery for the blind. Unfortunately the damage is done, students, and much of the public in any part of this world has been given licence by the UN to act out their antisemitism with gusto. 70 years from WW11 and the cracks in the dam holding back the tide of hatred is widening. It is with great hope that Nikki Haley might, just might make a difference but she will need to put on more than heels to stop the tsunami of ignorance..

    Just great!!

    I think the Governor has found her metier! Her voice is such a clear contrast to her predecessor (Rice) – and what a refreshing contrast! I certainly wish her every success in her new role – it really seems to suit her! Good for Trump to tap her for that position!

    It’s hard to imagine the amount of money Obama unfroze and handed over to Tehran, knowing that Tehran was bankrolling terrorism across the region. What was Obama thinking?

    The UN has been an impediment to peace ever since the stench of Islam took it over. The UN is a swamp that is filled with Islamic crocodiles who have no interest in peace as all they want is to dominate the world and set it back 15 centuries. Stop funding the UN as it is like giving weapons to your enemies. Starve them to death and the sooner the better..

  • 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.

    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, with the help of the almighty. 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 with our ancestral Jewish code and tradition.

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

    The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995[1] is a public law of the United States passed by the 104th Congress on October 23, 1995. It was passed for the purposes of initiating and funding the relocation of the Embassy of the United States in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, no later than May 31, 1999, and attempted to withhold 50 percent of the funds appropriated to the State Department specifically for “Acquisition and Maintenance of Buildings Abroad” as allocated in fiscal year 1999 until the United States Embassy in Jerusalem had officially opened.[2] The act also called for Jerusalem to remain an undivided city and for it to be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel. Israel’s declared capital is Jerusalem, but this is not internationally recognized, pending final status talks in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. The United States has withheld recognition of the city as Israel’s capital. The proposed law was adopted by the Senate (93–5),[3] and the House (374–37).[4]
