The Palestinians are “not serious in truly getting to peace” with Israel, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said in a Voice of America interview with Greta Van Susteren on Wednesday.

Asked about the recently-announced cut of American funding of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), Haley asked, “Why is the United States have to be the only one that bails out everyone? Why do we continue to give the money?”

“You have 120 countries who voted against us [at the UN], that could more than take up the level of debt that UNRWA has,” she continued. “We need to start being smart about the way we spend. We need to start really looking at foreign policy and seeing what the US goals are and where we want to go.”
