Nikki Haley Walks Out Of UN
What Nikki Haley did will go down in history as the day America dropped a MOAB in UN.
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley walked out of the Security Council at the United Nations when the Palestinian ambassador, Riyad Mansour, addressed the council.
Addressing the UN Security Council on Tuesday the Ms. Haley said: “No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has. Let’s remember that the Hamas terrorist organisation has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States decided to move our embassy.”
Ms Haley called attention to the tactics employed by some, which included the use of Molotov cocktails attached to kites. She also accused Hamas of making use of loudspeakers to urge protesters.
“This is what is endangering the people of Gaza. Make no mistake, Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday.”
While the shooting of mostly unarmed Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border fence received widespread international condemnation, the White House said Hamas, the militant group that controls Gaza, was responsible for the deaths and injuries.
Senator Bernie Sanders said “Hamas violence does not justify Israel firing on unarmed protesters, the United States must play an aggressive role in bringing Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Egypt and the international community together to address Gaza’s humanitarian crisis and stop this escalating violence.”
Democratic minority leader Nancy Pelosi condemned Hamas and said Israel had the right to defend its borders, but added: “We hope Israel will use all appropriate restraint, as we urge both parties to move towards negotiations that will ensure the safety and well being of both Israelis and Palestinians.
“The United States has long supported efforts to help Israeli and Palestinian leaders find a way towards a permanent two-state solution with two peoples living side-by-side in peace and security. It is profoundly disappointing that the administration chose to undermine this goal.”
United Nations secretary-general Antonio Guterres said Monday’s killing of more than 60 people showed the need for a political solution to the conflict. Speaking at the headquarters of the European Union, he said the way out of the standoff was “a two-state solution allowing Palestinians and Israelis to live in peace and security together”.
The Palestinian ambassador, Riyad Mansour, addressed the council. “How many Palestinians have to die before you take action? When are you going to act,” he said, according to the Associated Press.
Israeli ambassador Danny Danon later responded: “You must tell Hamas that violence is not the answer.”
Here is the instructions that Hammas sent to their followers by way of Facebook prior to the start of the Border violence.
