HALEY ON FIRE: US Ambassador TORCHES UN Over Palestinian Turmoil
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley slammed Arab member states over their relationship with the Palestinian Authority Tuesday, saying anti-Israeli rhetoric was having a disastrous impact on their “streets and communities.”
Haley was speaking at the United Nations Security Council this week when she called-out Arab nations for their “never-ending” speeches surrounding Israel; adding if “those words were useful” Palestinians “would not be facing the desperate conditions” we see today.
“If those words were useful in the schools, the hospitals, and the streets of their communities, the Palestinian people would not be facing the desperate conditions we are discussing here today,” she said. “But talk is cheap.”
“Since , the United States has provided over $6 billion (with a ‘b’) dollars in bilateral assistance to the Palestinians. How much have the Arab countries – some of whom are wealthy – how much have they given to the Palestinians? It does not come anywhere close to what the United States has done,” she added.
“We are not fools. If we extend a hand in friendship and generosity, we do not expect our hand to be bitten. And as we extend our hand, we also expect others to extend theirs as well,” said the Ambassador.

“We are going to fight for Venezuela and we are going to continue doing it until Maduro is gone!” yelled Haley.
“We need your voices to be loud and I will tell you, the US voice is going to be loud,” she added. “What we saw is what no one should live … while Maduro is eating in nice restaurants.”
Haley’s comments come days after Maduro was seen dining on $100 steaks and smoking lavish cigars during a recent trip to Asia to secure aid for his starving citizens.
