Haley: Israel is not going away

Israel National News reports: “Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, on Monday addressed the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington.

‘When I come to AIPAC I am with friends. I remember last year when we had the vote on America’s opposition to the Castro regime in Cuba. The vote went against us, 191-2. The only ‘no’ votes? You guessed it. The United States and Israel. But I always say that quality is better than quantity,’ said Haley.

She recalled how President Donald Trump, shortly after being elected, contacted her and asked her to serve as the American ambassador at the UN.

‘I told the president I won’t be a wallflower or a talking head. I have to be able to say what I think. Without any hesitation, President Trump said, ‘Nikki, that’s exactly why I want you to do this.’’

‘The top Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat, recently had some advice for me. He told me to shut up. Mr. Erekat, I will always be respectful, but I will never shut up,’ stressed Haley.

Resolution 2334, which condemned Israeli construction in Judea and Samaria and which the Obama administration permitted to pass in its final days was ‘a shameful day for America. On my first day, I assured the Israeli Ambassador [Danny Danon] that on my watch, that would never happen again. And I’m proud to say it has not happened again.’…”
