Haley Slams UN, Defends Israel Against Hamas

Just days after Hamas launched 450 rockets into Israel, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley slammed the U.N. Security Council as it called this week for both sides to “exercise maximum restraint.” Haley said, “There is only one side that attacks indiscriminately [Hamas].”

  • Despite a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel, Hamas leaders say they have no intention of holding their fire and threatened to attack Tel Aviv with rockets next.
  • In the wake of last week’s attacks, which led to the resignation of Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would now assume that role.
  • An Israeli man was stabbed in the face during a terror attack Tuesday in the Palestinian town of Beit Jala.
  • After years of abstaining from voting on the issue, this week the U.S. voted with Israel against a U.N. resolution calling for Israel to return the Golan Heights to Syria.
  • An Israel Defense Forces soldier, killed during an Israeli operation in Gaza last week, has been hailed as a hero for his actions in protecting his fellow soldiers.
