    Major General Herzi Halevi, the Commanding Officer of the IDF Southern Command, slammed the Hamas terrorist organization following the rocket attack on Be'er Sheva early Wednesday morning. "Hamas pretends to govern in Gaza, and tells the Gazan population that it seeks to improve their lives. However, in reality, Hamas specializes in riots at the border fence and in using explosive devices, incendiary and explosive balloons, and, as we saw last night, rockets," Gen. Halevi said in a statement. "Hamas worsens the lives of ordinary Gazans and last night took actions which forced us to strike a range of weapon production...

    “A ‘rigged’ election with no competition” Double standards may not be enough to describe what has become of the United Nations. In some ways, it has no standards at all. This was demonstrated very clearly by last week’s UN General Assembly vote for new members to join the inaptly named Human Rights Council.

    Is there more to Nikki Haley's resignation than first meets the eye? Putting together her past opposition to Trump, her thinly disguised ambition to run for the White House one day and the suddenness of the departure announcement, some Republicans think so. Nikki Haley declared herself “not a fan” of President Trump two weeks before the 2016 election. Author Michael Wolff branded her "as ambitious as Lucifer." A key Trump ally said Tuesday that the timing of her resignation "raised eyebrows" and "seemed odd." Haley's 2016 criticism of Trump and her differences with him over Russia policy made her a...

    Donald Trump’s former chief strategist slammed Nikki Haley’s decision to announce her resignation as ambassador to the UN as “suspect” and “horrific,” saying it overshadowed positive news Trump needs to rally support ahead of the midterms “The timing was exquisite from a bad point of view,” Steve Bannon said. “Everything she said yesterday and everything she said about stepping down could have been done on the evening of November 6. The timing could not have been worse.” Bannon said Haley’s announcement, which took White House officials by surprise, distracted attention from Kavanaugh’s first day as a justice on the Supreme...

    U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley surprised virtually everybody this week when she announced she'd be resigning from her post at the end of the year. In doing so, Haley has managed something unique. She leaves the Trump administration with her reputation not merely undiminished but actually enhanced. She's popular with both pro- and anti-Trump factions on the right, and with shockingly high numbers of independents and Democrats. She has a long list of accomplishments under her belt and no embarrassments or scandals. She is almost certainly the most popular politician in America. OK, full disclosure: I'm biased and conflicted. I'm biased...

    Nikki Haley has been one of the greatest and most courageous UN ambassadors that the United States has ever had President Trump confirmed on Tuesday that U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is resigning from that post and leaving the Trump administration at the end of this year. He praised Ambassador Haley as a “very special” person who had helped him solve “a lot of problems.” The reason for Ambassador Haley’s resignation remains unclear as of the writing of this article. However, President Trump said that she had told him six months ago that she might want to...

    Back in August, we caught Joe Scarborough predicting that President Trump won't seek re-election in 2020. Scarborough stuck to that problematic prognostication this morning in offering an explanation for Nikki Haley's resignation as UN Ambassador. Joe conjectured that Haley is positioning herself to run in 2020—and to get out in front of Mike Pence—after Trump decides not to run. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Since this week’s surprise announcement that Nikki Haley would depart by year’s end, everyone wants to know who’ll replace America’s UN ambassador — who was first dismissed, then hated, then feared and eventually appreciated, heck, even loved (at least by some). The answer, obviously, is up to the never-predictable President Trump, so most names bandied about are speculative, with many driven by wishful thinking. So here’s a wish: Christopher Burnham. Never heard of him? You may soon. Sure, there are other worthy candidates; Washington reporters come up with new ones daily. The much-advertised front-runner, former Deputy National Security Adviser Dina...

    An Israeli government study shared with Washington argues that Palestinian refugees number in the thousands, not the millions designated by a U.N. aid agency whose funding has been slashed by the Trump administration, an Israeli official said on Friday. The fate of Palestinians displaced by the 1948 war of Israel’s founding and their descendants has long clouded U.S.-sponsored peace efforts. Frustration over the issue is among factors fuelling often violent weekly protests at the Gaza border over the last half year, during which around 200 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces. Palestinians demand a refugee right of return to...

    The National Interest ^ | October 10, 2018 | Curt Mills
    Nikki Haley’s resignation earlier this week has set off a horse race inside administration circles to replace her. The early favorite? Dina Powell, former deputy to National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster and currently a top executive at Goldman Sachs. One problem: Powell is deeply unpopular with Donald Trump’s base. “All the right people don’t like her and all the wrong ones do,” a veteran conservative activist close with the White House told me Wednesday. A case in point: Max Boot , the ex-conservative NeverTrumper, endorsed her as having the right stuff on Tuesday night. Breitbart News is running...

    NEW YORK — President Donald Trump confirmed on Tuesday that he is eying Goldman Sachs executive Dina Habib Powell, his former deputy national security advisor, as a contender to replace Nikki Haley as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Haley announced her resignation on Tuesday, saying she will officially leave her post at the end of the year. Trump said that he would name Haley’s successor within two to three weeks. In one of many reports spotlighting Powell, CNBC cited “three people with direct knowledge of the matter” saying senior White House officials already reached out to Powell about the...

    Speaking Tuesday, she listed what she called achievements that had improved the U.S.’s standing on the world stage, including withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal and improving relations with North Korea. She also thanked Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, calling him a “hidden genius,” who along with his wife Ivanka does “a lot of things behind the scenes that I wish more people knew about.” Both Kushner and Ivanka Trump are senior advisers to the president. Trump did not name a replacement for Haley, but said “many people” want to take her place.

    President Trump‘s ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki R. Haley, has resigned, leaving the White House with one less moderate Republican voice on his cabinet’s foreign policy team. Ms. Haley, a former governor of South Carolina, had been an early and frequent critic of Mr. Trump, so when he named her the envoy to the world body weeks after his election in November 2016, the appointment was seen as an olive branch. The daughter of immigrants from India, Ms. Haley favored free markets and global trade and earned international attention for speaking out against the Confederate battle flag in the...

    United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley Wednesday denied that the world's leaders were ridiculing President Donald Trump when they laughed after he touted the United States' economy under his administration, saying instead they and diplomats "love how honest he is." "The media has got this so wrong," Haley told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "I deal with these leaders every single day. I know exactly how they think. Do they love America? No. Do they respect America? Now they do." On Tuesday, Trump's opening line before the UN General Assembly, when he talked about how successful his administration has been,...
