To Thunderous Applause, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley Says She's the "New Sheriff in Town" and She's "Not Here to Play"

News Staff : Mar 28, 2017

Saying the "days of Israel bashing are over," Haley announced that her approach to fighting anti-Israel elements at the world body is to "kick them every single time" they display their bias.

Haley has been widely praised in pro-Israel circles for her efforts to change the U.N.'s Israel discourse during the Trump administration's nascent days. Most recently, the U.S. demanded that the U.N. withdraw a report accusing Israel of apartheid. Indeed, the report—authored by Richard Falk, a discredited former U.N. special rapporteur who has an extensive record of anti-Israel rhetoric—was removed by the U.N. Further, Rima Khalaf, the head of the U.N. agency that released the report, resigned from her post.

"I don't know who the guy is, or what he's about, but he's got serious problems," Haley said Monday regarding Falk.

"For anyone who said you can't get anything done at the U.N., they need to know there's a new sheriff in town," she said.

Haley, the former governor of South Carolina—which under her leadership became the first U.S. state to pass legislation against the anti-Israel BDS movement—earned constant standing ovations throughout her speech. She was visibly touched by the warm reception, putting her hand on heart towards the end of her time on stage.

The daughter of Indian parents, Haley noted some Israeli-Indian cultural similarities, including that the communities are both close-knit, family-oriented and passionate about philanthropy. "So that's all the good things," she quipped, before adding, "We're aggressive, we're stubborn and we don't back down from a fight." (Screengrab via AIPAC 2017)

The envoy she is "not here to play" at the U.N. and would ensure that America starts "leading again" on the international stage. 
"Leading is saying and doing things when it's not comfortable," she said.

Recalling last December's U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334—which described eastern Jerusalem and its Jewish holy sites as "occupied Palestinian territory," and was passed following the Obama administration's refusal to veto the measure—Haley vowed such an incident "will never happen again."

"The days of Israel-bashing are over" are the U.N., she declared.
