The UN and Israel have had a strained relationship at best… actually let’s shelve the pretense: the UN hates Israel like Michael Moore hates the Second Amendment. And people with only one chin. The UN’s anti-Israel bias is clear (see Netanyahu Blasts UN and Obama Admin: ‘Stop Justifying Murder’ and Netanyahu Spokesperson: Obama ‘Helped Craft’ Abominable Anti-Israel Resolution). Nikki Haley, the new US Ambassador to the UN, used her first press conference to issue a warning…
“The Security Council is supposed to discuss how to maintain international peace and security. But at our meeting on the Middle East, the discussion was not about Hezbollah’s illegal build-up of rockets in Lebanon. It was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists. It was not about how we defeat ISIS. The meeting was not about how we hold Bashar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of hundreds and thousands of civilians. No, instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East.”
“I’m here to say the United States will not turn a blind eye to this anymore. I am here to underscore the ironclad support of the United States for Israel. I’m here to emphasize the United States is determined to stand up to the U.N.’s anti-Israel bias.”
Side note, am I the only one who thinks Ambassador Haley gives off a Mary Tyler Moore vibe? That is if Mary Tyler Moore drove a Hum-V and dined only on the rawest meat of animals she killed with an AR-15. Hoorah.
Seriously though, the Obama Administration left office with a sloppy deployment of all their middle fingers. Shaking and wagging said middle fingers at Israel in such a whorish fashion even Miley Cyrus would blush. It’s a damn mystery why Israel wasn’t too keen on Barack Obama and his merry bandits of Muslim sympathizing weenies. It’s also not a mystery why Israel, including its baritone-voiced leader Bibi, has embraced Trump much the same way a fat-pride land whale greets a seven-tiered cake.
After eight years of wanton disrespect toward the only democracy in the Middle East, it’s rather a lovely contrast to watch the Trump Administration treat Israel with the respect it actually deserves. Not the underhanded disdain doled out to it by “tolerant” Democrats who say they love the Jews. While propping up Islam whenever the opportunity suicide bombs.
Also, Nikki Haley is hot. The incoming feminist onslaught will be brutal. But methinks she can handle herself with great aplomb.
