“You’re not going to take our number one democratic friend in the Middle East, and beat up on them.”
Newly appointed Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has had a stellar first few months at her new job. And now, she is receiving a hero’s welcome back home for the work that she is doing abroad to protect American interests at home and overseas.
“For anyone who says you can’t get anything done at the U.N., they need to know there is a new sheriff in town,” she says. Haley made the comments to a packed crowd of around 20,000 pro-Israel advocates at yesterday’s American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) Conference.
Ambassador Haley appears to be relishing her new international role, and has been eagerly defending American interests and allies abroad at the United Nations. Already, she has managed to successfully force the UN to withdraw a report accusing Israel of apartheid, and was able to stop a Palestinian from being given one of the highest positions at the UN. “What [this] means is, until the Palestinian Authority comes to the table, [and] until the UN responds the way they are supposed to, there are no freebies for the Palestinian Authority any more.”
“You just can’t comprehend how ridiculous it is,” she said, with regards to the incessant Israel-bashing. “I wear heels. It’s not a fashion statement. It’s because if I see something wrong, we’re going to kick them every single time.”
Isn’t it refreshing to finally have a Presidential administration that defends American interests at the UN instead of the Middle East? Let us know your thoughts on Nikki Haley’s comments by sharing this article on Twitter and tagging @resurgent.
