(Worthy News) - Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, described the world body as "hopelessly biased" against Israel on Tuesday in her last address to the monthly Security Council meeting in New York.
"Over the past two years, I have attempted to provide more value in this monthly meeting by using my time to speak about other pressing problems in the Middle East," Haley said. "I've done it to illustrate that most of the region's problems have absolutely nothing to do with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. And I've done it to encourage the U.N. to move away from its obsession with Israel.
But she broke from tradition to address the Israel-Palestinian issue. Two weeks ago, the General Assembly failed to adopt a U.S. resolution condemning terrorism by Hamas. Yet it has passed more than 700 resolutions critical of Israel over the years, she said. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
