United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley's pro-Israeli words spoken against the UN have swept over the web. Even Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shared the video and posted on Facebook: "US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, thank you for your unequivocal support for Israel! It's time to put an end to the absurdity in the United Nations."
The Israeli UN representatives headed by Ambassador Danny Danon and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs immediately realized they have quite the PR prize on their hands and distributed the video. Israeli ambassadors worldwide followed suit.
Spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Emanuel Nachshon, said, "The US Ambassador to the UN's remarks signal the beginning of a new era in which the world's biggest power says 'enough!' to discrimination against Israel in international institutions. For us, this is a substantial moment. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs have been distributing her statements via all its public diplomacy channels."
"The Security Council just finished its regular monthly meeting on Middle East issues, it's the first meeting like that, that I've attended, and I have to say, it was a bit strange," said Haley.
"The security council is supposed to discuss how to maintain international peace and security, but in our meeting on the Middle East, the discussion was not about Hezbollah's illegal buildup of rockets in Lebanon, it was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists, it was not about how we defeat ISIS, it was not about how we hold Bashar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of civilians, no, instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East," she continued.
