Since being appointed as US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley has become Israel’s greatest advocate within the international organization. The daughter of immigrants from India has risen to the second most important American diplomatic position.
Nikki Haley defending Israel
As reported earlier today (Tuesday) by JOL, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley promised at the AIPAC Policy Conference that “the days of Israel-bashing are over” and that the UN needs “to know that there is a new sheriff in town.” However, this is not the first time that Haley has defended Israel at the UN and on many other platforms. The daughter of immigrants from India, who is considered to be a rising star within the Republican Party, has become Israel’s most ardent defender within the UN.
Shortly after being elected this past November, US President Donald Trump announced his support for Haley as the ambassador to the UN. Many were surprised by the endorsement of the young governor who had very little experience in both foreign policy and filling federal government roles. Haley emphasized before American journalists and UN diplomats that she will no longer turn a blind eye to the international organization’s anti-Israel policy.

During the hearing in which the US Senate approved Haley’s appointment as the US ambassador to the UN, she stated that she completely supports moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. “Nowhere has the UN’s failure been more consistent and more outrageous than in its bias against our close ally Israel.”
