Push to End UN Anti-Israel Bias Is Demand for Peace

One of yesterday's speakers at AIPAC was American Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley. The Times of Israel's Eric Cortellessa reports that during her speech, Haley not only insisted on fair treatment of the Jewish state by the international community, but said that only when Israel is accepted will peace prevail:

The UN’s bias against Israel, she said, has “long undermined peace by encouraging an illusion that Israel will simply go away.” But Israel, she stressed, “is not going away. When the world recognizes that, then peace becomes possible” because all sides will then “be dealing with realities not fantasies” and “reasonable negotiated compromises can prevail over absolutist demands.”

Praising US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, she predicted that the day would come when the whole world would follow suit. And she said she intended to come to Jerusalem for the ceremony opening the US embassy there in May.

Haley’s address was by far the most enthusiastically received of any speech at the conference since it opened on Sunday morning. “You guys are amazing,” she said at the start, as the applause continued.

Twice she was interrupted by voices from the crowd declaring their love for her. Twice, she replied: “I love you too.”

To thunderous applause, Haley promised early in her remarks that she would not allow the UN to bully Israel any longer.

“At the UN and throughout the UN agencies, Israel gets bullied,” the South Carolina native told the crowd of 18,000 gathered in the nation’s capital.  “I have absolutely no patience for bullying...”
