Thank You, Nikki Haley
All those who stand with the State of Israel — and with decency — must stand up and say: “Thank you, Nikki Haley.”
Haley stood with history, logic, truth, heritage and reality, in noting that “America will put our embassy in Jerusalem,” and that “no vote in the United Nations will make any difference on that.”
Although 128 nations voted against President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Ambassador Haley revealed herself as a lioness standing up for the State of Israel. To sit amongst so many people who hate you and speak truth in an unwavering voice isn’t easy. How refreshing it is to see someone with integrity, poise, resolve and a commitment to the truth speak at the United Nations.
As the late Abba Eban, Israel’s legendary ambassador to the United Nations, once said: “If Algeria introduced a resolution declaring that the earth was flat and that Israel had flattened it, it would pass by a vote of 164 to 13 with 26 abstentions.”
As much as some things change, some stay the same.
But under the Trump administration, Israel is not forced to stand alone. Thank you, President Trump. Thank you, Ambassador Haley.
Thank you for recognizing that the UN has long been a hostile place for the State of Israel. Thank you for recognizing that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel. And thank you for standing with Israel.
