Nikki Haley Calls Apartheid Israel ‘the one true democracy in the Middle East’

Out of all of Trump’s appointees, Nikkie Haley is probably one of the worst. Formerly a governor of South Carolina, Haley is the current US ambassador to the United Nations. That’s her in the video above giving a presentation at the UN last Thursday.

I’m not sure how much Haley knows about international law. According to Wikipedia, she graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting. How she ended up as UN ambassador, after criticizing Trump in the general election, is unclear. *

At any rate, Haley seems fully unaware that Israeli settlements are illegal under international law. Nor does she seem to comprehend why other UN-member states might press for resolutions seeking to call Israel to account, both for its settlements as well as its 50-year occupation of the West Bank–land universally recognized as necessary for a Palestinian state. So perhaps she is simply uninformed and does not understand the nature of Israel’s occupation or its devastating impact upon the lives of those forced to live under it. Or at least that’s one possibility.

The other possibility, of course, is that Haley does understand these things…and that she simply believes Israel is exceptional and should not have to follow the same laws and international standards that apply to other states. If so, apparently in Israel are those who would agree with her. Less than a week after her talk at the UN–in which she accused the body of a “prejudiced approach to Israeli-Palestinian issues”–an Israeli military court handed down an 18-month sentence to an Israeli soldier who carried out an execution-style slaying of a wounded Palestinian in March of last year. There was no doubt the soldier was the one who pulled the trigger. The shooting was captured live on video. The sentence of 18 months he received for killing a Palestinian is lighter than what Palestinian children are often given for throwing stones.

* Incredibly, Haley also voiced criticism of Trump–over his stance on Russia–during her congressional confirmation hearings back in January. At that time she accused Russia of “war crimes,” and said, “They (the Russians) have done some terrible atrocities.”

  3. but is she evil like power and bolton
    sc is basically a state of ignorants
    who vote for similar
    maybe she is trump’s way
    of showing how much he
    values the un
    and she probably wont
    be around long

  4. I would probably put her on a par with Bolton. Neither one has “eyes to see or hears to hear,” as Jesus would have put it.

  5. That was my initial thought was that she is a Christian Zionist. At the same time she is the daughter of immigrants from India and was raised as a Sikh–which of course doesn’t mean she’s not a Christian Zionist now, and supposedly she did convert to “Christianity” at some point.

  6. John Negroponte, Samantha Power, John Bolton, Madelaine Albright, Susan Rice…America has had some real model citizens serving as UN ambassadors

  8. Nikki Haley is the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations because she exploited the mass murder committed by Dylann Roof on June 17, 2015, for her own political benefit. While at the scene of that mass murder, Nikki Haley was asked, by a reporter, what she would do to strengthen gun regulations in South Carolina. “Nothing,” she said. And Nikki Haley, who had an “A+” rating by the NRA, stated that Dylann Roof’s handgun (which he had acquired via a loophole in gun laws) had nothing to do with the crime.

    Still, Nikki Haley had to blame something. Dylann Roof had a few photographs of a tiny, souvenir-sized Confederate battle flag on his website. Nikki Haley blamed that flag. She made one of the most preposterous arguments in political history: that a flag caused Dylann Roof to murder nine people. Then she ordered the removal of a Confederate battle flag, not from the South Carolina capitol, but from a Confederate memorial monument to which it had been moved in 2000. That’s all she did–it was a hollow, condescending gesture. But she became an instant heroine in the eyes of Digital-Age Americans with no knowledge of American history.

    The fact that Nikki Haley is a Zionist Christian is incidental–she is the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations because of what she did on July 9, 2015.

    And you are absolutely right in questioning Nikki Haley’s knowledge of international law. She knows nothing of international law–and everything of strategic politics. She’s a brilliant politician–and that’s all she is.

    Yet because she is so politically adept, Nikki Haley is the most dangerous politician in the United States today.

  9. Interesting analysis. You apparently know a lot about South Carolina politics. Thanks for your perspective.
