After attending her first monthly Security Council meeting, Nikki R. Haley, United States ambassador to the United Nations, stated that the “U.S. is determined to stand up to the UN’s anti-Israel bias.”
“The double standards are breathtaking,” she continued, highlighting the recent refusal of the UN to condemn a terror attack in Israel. “The Security Council would not hesitate to condemn an attack like that in any other country.
