Although I personally had my reservations when newly elected President Trump decided to nominate the #nevertrump former governor of South Carolina as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, she has proven to be quite the firecracker in that post and far superior to anyone we have seen in recent history. And when it comes to Israel and the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, she has been a staunch defender of both the embassy relocation and the state of Israel.
Monday was no exception when she blocked a call for an international investigation into Israel’s tactics in clashes with Gaza protesters and blamed Iran and terrorist proxies for causing the violence to begin with. She also later walked out of the UN Security Council Meeting before the Palestinian Representative to the council was able to give his remarks against the State of Israel.
"No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has," US Amb. Haley says at the UN the day after at least 58 Palestinians were k****d and more than 2,700 others were injured at the Gaza border. https://t.co/fnvTjyGBgV pic.twitter.com/Leaa3V3cPu

This all came as President Trump and Israeli officials drew widespread condemnation on Monday, as thousands of Palestinians protested the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. Dozens of Palestinians were k****d in the ensuing clashes. Of course, they never mention what the Hamas soldiers who were standing behind the so-called “protesters” were doing or what they were firing at IDF forces because it wouldn’t be convenient for the anti-Semitic hacks who largely run the UN.
This is the truth as to what Israel has to deal with on a daily basis:
This is what a border infiltration from #Gaza into #Israel looks like. See the man (0:30) clutching a meat cleaver? Imagine hundreds like him coming into Israeli territory, hoping to m****r as many Israelis as possible.

As Haley walked out of the chamber the Palestinian representative gave his remarks. Ambassador Riyad Mansour said, “We condemn in the strongest terms this odious m******e committed by Israel occupation forces.”
So basically the ambassador from the fake nation of Palestine thinks Israel should just bow down and take the slaughter of her people and the invasion of their land. And we can pretty much be sure that the majority of the delegates in the U.N. will be more than happy to side with him against the Jewish State of Israel!
Here is more on this via The Washington Examiner:
“U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Tuesday blocked a call for an international investigation into Israel’s tactics in clashes with Gaza protesters, and blamed Iran and terrorist proxies for causing the violence.
“In recent days, Hamas terrorists, backed by Iran, have incited attacks against Israeli security forces and infrastructure,” Haley told the U.N. Security Council during a Tuesday session. “There is far too little discussion in the Security Council on Iran’s destabilizing presence in Syria, its promotion of violence in Yemen, its support for terrorism in Gaza, and its dangerous and illegal weapons buildup in Lebanon.”
Trump and Israeli officials drew widespread condemnation on Monday, as thousands of Palestinians protested the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. Dozens of Palestinians were k****d in the ensuing clashes.
A proposed U.N. statement from Kuwait offered on Tuesday called for an investigation to decide if the Israeli Defense Forces violated international bans on “willful k*****g and willfully causing great suffering,” but Haley praised their tactics and blamed Hamas, and blocked it from consideration as she did so.
“Hamas maps and social media show the fastest routes to reach Israeli communities in case demonstrators make it through the security fence,” she said, citing media reports. “They have reported on Hamas messages over loudspeakers that urge demonstrators to burst through the fence, falsely claiming Israeli soldiers were fleeing, when in fact, they were not.”
Haley then walked out of the chamber before the Palestinian representative to the council gave his remarks. “We condemn in the strongest terms this odious m******e committed by Israel occupation forces,” Ambassador Riyad Mansour said.
Other western powers have been more sympathetic to the Palestinian position, particularly French President Emmanuel Macron.
“[Macron] lamented the large number of Palestinian civilian casualties in Gaza today and over the past few weeks,” the French presidency said Monday, in a readout of his calls to regional leaders. “He condemned the violence of Israeli armed forces against demonstrators.”
Israeli forces accused Hamas of using the protests to stage attacks against the border fence between Israel and Gaza.
“[T]he IDF received intelligence that Hamas operatives were preparing to cross through the security fence from northern Gaza,” an IDF spokesperson tweeted. “The [IDF] used riot dispersal means to distance the terrorists from the fence, & the terrorists fired at the soldiers. The soldiers responded with targeted fire, thwarting a significant s******g attack.”
Haley praised the Israeli forces’ performance through the protests. “I ask my colleagues here in the Security Council, who among us would accept this type of activity on your border?” she said. “No one would. No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has. In fact, the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained.”
