Haley: Time to Say Enough Is Enough to Hamas

The American ambassador to the United Nations recently paid a visit to Israel, which she toured from north to south. And Arutz Sheva's Elad Benari reports that now that Nikki Haley is back home, she is supporting the Jewish state - and standing against terror - by pressuring the U.N. to take action against Hamas and those that support it:

“A few weeks ago, UN officials discovered a tunnel underneath two schools run by the UN in Gaza. It was the exact type of tunnel that Hamas has used for years. These tunnels are what Hamas uses to smuggle in the materials they need to make rockets. Or to sneak into Israel to attack civilians or kidnap them in the dead of night,” Haley told a UN Security Council briefing on the situation in the Middle East.

“Imagine children playing in their schoolyard while Hamas moved explosives underneath their feet. Imagine children trying to learn, while a few feet below, terrorists might have been crawling toward Israel. All of this happening under a building flying the flag of the United Nations. It’s an outrage,” she added.

Haley noted that Gaza “is prime real estate on the Mediterranean Sea” and has “enormous potential”, but that potential “is being squandered by the terrorists who govern it.”

The humanitarian crisis in Gaza “rests squarely with the one group that actually controls Gaza: Hamas,” she continued.

“Hamas has exercised control over Gaza since 2007. After 10 years of Hamas rule, life for the people of Gaza is worse than ever before. Rather than govern, Hamas chooses to devote its resources to building a terrorist arsenal. Rather than pursuing peace, Hamas chooses to provoke destructive wars. Rather than allowing help to reach the Palestinian people, Hamas chooses to divert untold amounts of aid to feed its military enterprise...”
