Posted on 05/15/2018 10:46:04 PM PDT by Helicondelta
U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley slammed the United Nations on Tuesday for pushing an investigation into the measures Israel took to secure its border during violent clashes with Hamas-backed insurgents earlier this week.
After she concluded her speech, she walked out of the chamber when a Palestinian representative began to speak.

Given they’re boycotting the US as a peace mediator, Haley wasn’t going to stick around hearing them trash her country.
The Palestinian Arabs have burned their bridges. Sure, they can get a sympathy vote from 14 of the 15 UNSC members.
At the end of the day, we hold the ultimate trump card: the veto.
Guatemala’s President is now in Israel to reopen his country’s embassy in Jerusalem on Wednesday.
Here is the trickle... it may take a while to become a flood.
All the yammering at the UN won’t thwart.
The UN is not only useless, it is a destructive force, always on the wrong side.
Why the *bleep* should Israel even be asked to have relations with Hamas, when Hamas has the destruction of Israel in their very charter?
Who, of any sane mind, would tell another person or people: “Yes, they want to murder you, but can’t you just get along?”
More like: what is it any of business of yours we shoot murderous thugs dead?
You would do exactly the same thing in our place. The hypocrisy is nauseating.
It’s not just Guatamala, last I heard/read. I think it’s about 5+ countries now.
The Palestinian Arabs have burned their bridges.
Not only have they burned their bridges, they’ve burned their ONLY supply border crossing station (Kerem Shalom)that supplies them with gas, food and supplies!
What so-called “desperate” people burn their main lifeline?
Except for Syria, Turkey, Iran and Europe, no one really cares for Palestinians outside of the UN.
Yup. I should say Western Europe.
They’d probably widen their streets to welcome the Russians in and their women Defense Ministers will give them flowers!
What spineless maroons.
Trumps just not fooling around with the violence of those folks anymore....He put Abbass on notice and now Hamas likewise.
Trumps looking for solutions and people who can do that....the old worn out ways of the past he’s not buying nor will he play in their games. Either come to the table with real solutions or everything moves forward without you.
About three weeks ago, I noted that the Saudis kinda told the Palestinians that their long-term strategy wasn’t going to be effective and they needed to move closer to some agreement.
Money-wise, if the US cuts off their money, and the Saudis (because of financial issues and lesser profits on oil) trim theirs....the only big supporter is Iran. Last I noticed, the Iran banks are in serious jeopardy and money-laundering episodes are occurring monthly.
We might be six months away from a ‘wake-up’ but I think the reality that North Korea came to....will occur with the Palestinians shortly.
Note as well...the suggested number of deaths are not readily proven. There might be a few of these guys who died and then were pulled out of the morgue for a second tour, as dead guy number two.
Palestinians are hard-wired for violence and victim-hood when they loose.....that’s not going to change and Trumps sized that up early on. He’s not going to play their game....and now they have to learn that.
would have been nice if she threatened ot cut off funding to the palis if they didn’t quit their hatred and violence towards Israel
It will take a long time for the Palis to comprehend their new situation. If the spineless Europeans would stop nursing their dream of defeating Israel, things would crumble for them very rapidly.
One thing is for sure, they will wait it out (and continue to wallow in their own cesspool) until a Obama or Sanders-like Left-wing Libtard comes to power in 2021 or 2025...they can sit it out and just enjoy their victim hood.
Precisely - and I hope we see reports every day about another group of 5 or 6 who ‘accidentally’ blew themselves up. Strange how that happens.
Arent they descended from Ishmael? That would explain it.
Yup, and our Veto power is the ONLY reason why we should be a part of the UN. Furthermore, if I were Trump, I would kick everyone out of the building and cease contributing a dime to the UN.
Well, I guess this means Haley’s boss has thrown in the towel on peace in the Middle East.
Good to know.
PREDICTION: The Palestinians meet our terms (meaning they also meet Israel’s terms) and start SERIOUS peace talks.
RATIONALE: Sounds insane, but consider their position, relative to most of the past 40 years:
1) The US is through treating them ‘equally’ as they send rockets into Israel and attempt to keep terrorizing them.
2) Russia is also on excellent terms with Israel...they see no value in supporting ‘the resistance’ there. There are now millions of (formerly) Russian Jews living in Israel, and Russia makes a point of looking out for Russian nationals anywhere they are in the world (as Ukraine is learning the hard way).
3) Two Arab states, neither of which recognize Israel are at least tacitly supporting Israel. Bahrain stated outright that Israel has the right to defend itself (against Iranians setting up shop in Syria), and the Saudis, by many of their actions are headed that direction.
The bottom line, I think, is that many countries are simply SICK TO DEATH of the Palestinians. They send rockets over, make surges towards Israel’s border, build tunnels under the border - and when Israel responds even in a minimal way, they, the Palestinians, complain that they’re not being treated fair.
I think their day has come and gone, and now they’ll take whatever they can get from the US and the ‘Zionist Entity’, as they call Israel.
