Finally Moral Sense: US Ambassador to UN Nikki Haley

The Obama-Kerry team left office slinging mud and worse at Israel at the United Nations, so POTUS Donald Trump's US Ambassador to UN Nikki Haley's words are super extra appreciated:
The first thing I want to do is talk about what we just saw in there. The Security Council just finished its regular monthly meeting on Middle East issues. It’s the first meeting like that that I’ve attended, and I have to say it was a bit strange. The Security Council is supposed to discuss how to maintain international peace and security. But at our meeting on the Middle East, the discussion was not about Hizballah’s illegal build-up of rockets in Lebanon. It was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists. It was not about how we defeat ISIS. It was not about how we hold Bashar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of hundreds and thousands of civilians. No, instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East. I am new around here, but I understand that’s how the Council has operated, month after month, for decades.

I’m here to say the United States will not turn a blind eye to this anymore. I am here to underscore the ironclad support of the United States for Israel. I’m here to emphasize the United States is determined to stand up to the UN’s anti-Israel bias. We will never repeat the terrible mistake of Resolution 2334 and allow one-sided Security Council resolutions to condemn Israel. Instead, we will push for action on the real threats we face in the Middle East. (UNWatch.org)
The moral compass of the world is so strangely skewered, so improperly set up. Considering their obsession with imagined wrongdoings of Israel, "international moral compass" is an oxymoron.

We must truly thank the Donald Trump team for changing American policy and priorities.

I would not be so enthusiastic just yet. How would they react if we took our destiny into our own hands, annexed the land and helped those Arabs who don't want to live in a Jewish state leave?

Please listen to the Tamar Yonah show last night (podcast) with Prof Gil-White.

Yes, its nice to have this change but we currently are nothing more that a vassal state of the US. (Bibi saying that the are forming a joint council to decide the direction of the settlements)
