HALEY UNCHAINED: Nikki Haley GRILLS Palestinian President at UN
US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley grilled Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at a UN Security Council meeting Thursday, blasting the leader for bolstering “outrageous and discredited conspiracy theories” regarding Israel and the United States.
According to Fox News, Haley launched her attack on Abbas at a high-level meeting covering the Middle East peace process, slamming the Palestinian President for attempting to boot the US from negotiations with their Israeli counterparts.
“We will not accept for the U.S. to be a mediator, because after what they have done to us — a believer shall not be stung twice in the same place,” Abbas told the New York Times.
“He rejected any American role in peace talks. He insulted the American president. He called for suspending recognition of Israel,” said the UN Ambassador. “He invoked an ugly and fictional past, reaching back to the 17th century to paint Israel as a colonialist project engineered by European powers.”
“A speech that indulges in outrageous and discredited conspiracy theories is not the speech of a person with the courage and will to seek real peace,” she added.
HALEY UNCHAINED: Nikki Haley SLAMS UN for Total Silence on Hamas Attacks
US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley slammed the UN Security Council this week over its total silence towards blatant Hamas attacks on Israeli citizens, saying the group is showcasing its “outrageous hypocrisy” towards the Jewish State.
Haley was speaking before the council Wednesday when she ripped the organization for completely ignoring the terror group’s rocket and mortar attacks on Israeli civilians, asking, “Who among us would accept 70 rockets launched into your country?”
Israeli Defense Forces unleashed a barrage of rockets and missiles on Hamas military bases this week after the terror organization launched over hundred Iranian-manufactured mortars towards southern Israel.
