U.S. vows to end 'Israel-bashing' at United Nations

Haley made the declaration on Monday, while addressing the annual Policy Conference of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

"At the United Nations, what is the attitude about the enforcement of the Iran Deal and how to hold Iran accountable, most importantly how to hold Iran accountable for the deal and for the threats it's posing?" Goes and compares Israel to an apartheid state.

Fayyad served as a Palestinian prime minister between 2007 and 2013. He called the blacklist effort "pure anti-Semitism" and said that "together with the USA, our greatest ally, we will keep fighting until BDS is eliminated". Haley added that she's "working to change the culture" at the Security Council, which she compared to that of the SC legislature: Both, she said, are clubs and have rules and cultures that need to change.


"That doesn't mean he wasn't a nice man", she continued.

Since her confirmation Haley has moved quickly to silence any criticism of Israel at the U.N. In her first speech at U.N. headquarters in New York, Haley promised to "have the backs of our allies", and added that "for those who don't have our back, we're taking names; we will make points to respond to that accordingly". "That doesn't mean he wasn't good to America", Haley explained to AIPAC.

"I wear high heels, it's not for a fashion statement, it's because if I see something wrong I will kick it every single time".


"The U.N.is missing the growing discontent and the growing mistrust among the people it's supposed to represent", she added. But the report was removed from the internet soon afterward due to objections from U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

"The reason it's concerning is because when the Iran deal took place, all it did was empower Iran and it empowered Russian Federation, and it emboldened Iran to feel like they could get away with more", she began. "For anyone who says you can't get anything done at the United Nations, they need to know there's a new sheriff in town". South Carolina State Rep. Alan Clemmons, who has spearheaded legislative efforts to oppose BDS, responded by calling J Street anti-Semitic and rejecting the idea that the West Bank is occupied.
