UN Ambassador Nikki Haley: 'The Days of Israel-Bashing Are Over'

"What I wanted to make sure of was that the United States was leading again", said Haley.

During the hearing in which the US Senate approved Haley's appointment as the US ambassador to the United Nations, she stated that she completely supports moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Goes and compares Israel to an apartheid state. Fayyad was highly unpopular with Palestinians and sometimes called a "collaborator" with Israel, while being praised by the Bush administration for fighting corruption. 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.

Last month, Haley issued a scathing criticism of the U.N. Security Council for their "breathtaking" double-standards and anti-Israel bias after emerging from her monthly meeting at the global body.

She went on to explain how she got the U.N.to refrain from placing a former prime minister of the Palestinian Authority into a top-level position: "What it means is, until the Palestinian Authority comes to the table, until the United Nations responds the way they're supposed to, there are no freebies for the Palestinian Authority anymore".

The United States wants the troop cap to be cut by a quarter to 15,000, diplomats said, and despite a request by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to add two extra police units - 320 officers - Washington does not want to change the current total of 1,050. That doesn't mean he wasn't good to America.

"I wear heels. It's not for a fashion statement", Haley told the crowd. She reminded the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that as governor of SC, she was the first governor to sign a law punishing businesses who participate in boycotts of Israel - a law that inspired dozens of similar bills in other states.

Throughout the hearings, Haley claimed her willingness to silence criticism of Israel as a chief qualification. She was eventually confirmed by the full Senate by a vote of 96-4.

"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. Haley said the U.N.'s political mission in Afghanistan will soon be under "strategic review" because "no one has ever thought to check and see if we're actually achieving any goals".
