Nikki Haley Accuses UN, Other Countries Of Bullying Israel

Nikki Haley Accuses UN, Other Countries Of Bullying Israel

Haley took an opportunity to hit out at the United Nations during a Monday speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference.

But while addressing 18,000 AIPAC delegates, Friedman said he took issue with J Street's motto, which describes themselves as "pro Israel, pro peace".

In his address, Howard Kohr echoed many of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's favorite themes, praising America's continued unshakeable commitment to Israel's security and condemning Iranian aggression.

President Trump, for his part, has expressed support a two-state solution only if both sides agree to this approach.

"We've made great progress in the fight against ISIS".

And yet a true peace also requires "truth-telling", Pence said, touting President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"Like most Americans, I knew what the capital of Israel was", she said. "But we're never gonna put up with bullying".

"If you support Israel, then you must by definition support peace with its neighbors", Friedman said.

"Using that phrase suggests Israel is not pro-peace". Saying pro-Israel and pro- peace is a redundancy.

Yossi Dagan, Head of the Samaria Regional Council and a senior activist in Israel's settlement enterprise, on Sunday sent out a letter attacking the CEO of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee Howard Kohr for his support of a future Palestinian State in Judea and Samaria.

By way of background, Kohr's statements are completely in line with AIPAC's current official position, which states: "A durable Israeli-Palestinian peace can best be achieved through direct negotiations between the two parties, resulting in a Jewish state living side-by-side in peace with a demilitarized Palestinian state".

Israel "is not going away", she stated, adding the realization of that at the United Nations was the key to ending Israel's isolation there.

"Jerusalem was, is and always will be Israel's capital", Haley added.

Haley said she hopes to attend the opening of the embassy in Jerusalem scheduled for May, around the time of Israel's 70th Independence Day celebrations.
