Nikki Haley has been a great choice for the United Nations position. She is fearless and is does not shy from the fight.
And the fight in the United Nations is usually about attacking our ally Israel.
Like Algeria and Turkey just did, but before they could finish their plan, Nikki came forward and put them in their place.
From the Daily Wire:
She ripped the resolution being offered, noting, “It is totally one-sided. It makes not one mention of Hamas, who routinely initiates violence in Gaza. Such one-sided resolutions at the U.N. do nothing to advance peace between Israel and the Palestinians. Everyone recognizes that. But advancing peace is not the goal of this resolution.”
She pointed out the U.N. was doing a disservice to the people of Gaza, asserting, “It feeds a narrative to the desperate people of Gaza that their leaders are not responsible for their predicament. It stokes hatred. It sacrifices honesty, accuracy, compromise, and reconciliation in favor of the advancement of a narrow political agenda,” and adding, “I wish everyone supporting this one-sided resolution would put as much energy into encouraging President Abbas to come to the negotiating table, as you do to falsely imply to your people back home that you’re doing something.”
Haley correctly noted, “Israel withdrew completely from Gaza in 2005. Hamas has been the de facto government in Gaza since 2007. This strip of land along the Mediterranean coast has enormous potential. And yet, after 11 years of Hamas rule, Gaza has electricity for only a few hours a day. It has enormous unemployment and poverty. It is a haven for terrorist activity. At what point will the U.N. actually hold accountable those who are in charge of Gaza and running it into the ground?”
Haley commented that the resolution holds Hamas completely unaccountable for most of the recent unrest, entirely blaming Israel. Then she went after Hamas:
“It is Hamas and its allies that have fired over a hundred rockets into Israel in the past month, hoping to cause death to as many civilians and as much destruction as possible. It is Hamas that has used Palestinian civilians as human shields at the boundary fence, seeking to incite violence and overrun the border. It is Hamas that refuses to cooperate with the Palestinian Authority to unite in the pursuit of peace. It is Hamas that calls for the destruction of the state of Israel within any borders. And yet the resolution before us not only fails to blame Hamas for these actions, it fails to even mention Hamas. This is the dangerous, counter-productive decision the General Assembly is about to take.”
