A Defiant Netanyahu Opens UN Exhibit on Jerusalem: Thanks Nikki Haley for Being a "Tsunami of Fresh Air"
Israel Hayom : Mar 9, 2018
"This [Jerusalem] exhibit would not have been possible 10 years ago. And this exhibit will be unnecessary 10 years from now. We are changing the world. We are changing Israel's position in the world, and above all we are making it clear that we fight for the truth and for our rights. We also fight for security." -Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
(New York, NY)—[JNS.org] Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the United Nations headquarters in New York on Thursday, where he met U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley and toured an exhibit about the Jewish people's connection to Jerusalem.
"I wanted to tell you how much we appreciate the defense of Israel and the truth that the president [U.S. President Donald Trump] and you bring into these cloistered halls that are so damp, you know, with anti-Israel venom," Netanyahu told Haley.
"It's not just a breath of fresh air; it's like a tsunami of fresh air."
In response, Haley derided the anti-Israel bias in the U.N., saying "It's amazing. I mean, really, it was just abusive before, and I think I've told you that before. I mean, I feel bad for Danny [Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Danny Danon] and what he's had to put up with. It was abusive before."
"But it's actually starting to get a little bit better," she continued. "I mean, they don't want to get yelled at, right? So they just realized that."
Chuckling, Netanyahu responded by saying "so continue yelling," to which Haley replied "it's what I do."
Netanyahu and Haley then discussed the threat posed by Iran.
