Today, the he United Nations is being called upon to vote on a resolution to denounce Hamas’ usage of civilian resources for military purposes. It also includes a demand to condemn the firing of rockets into Israel and incitement to violence by Hamas.
Ambassador Haley and Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon are making intense efforts among the ambassadors of other UN member states to pass the resolution denouncing Hamas. The idea is to obtain extensive international condemnation of Hamas’ terror activities, which would put both Hamas and the PLO under pressur.e
The resolution was drawn up and led by U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who is soon leaving her position at the United Nations.
Today she tweeted-
RT @USUN: This afternoon, the UN will vote on a US resolution that asks a simple question: do countries support Hamas' terrorism, or don't they? The UN has a chance to condemn Hamas for the first time. If the UN fails to do so, its lack of credibility will speak for itself.— Nikki Haley (@nikkihaley) December 6, 2018
Haley stressed that UN member countries face a simple question: do they back terrorism or not. She has consistently denounced Hamas, in keeping with President Donald Trump’s view in Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Thursday’s vote is expected to be the last US-backed resolution in which Haley is involved, as she has announced plans to resign from her post by the end of the year.
The chips are down, will the UN continue it’s ant- Israel policies, or will it finally acknowledge the truth?
