Jerusalem: Trump’s envoy Haley berates ‘outrageous UN hostility’

The US envoy to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has accused the UN of damaging the prospects for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

The organisation “has outrageously been one of the world’s foremost centres of hostility towards Israel”, she said.

Mrs Haley was addressing an emergency meeting of the Security Council called after President Donald Trump’s decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem.

    The BBC continues with its biased and propagandistic reporting:
    “Israel has carried out air strikes against targets in the Gaza Strip, injuring a number of people, after Palestinian militants fired rockets into Israeli territory.”

    The BBC makes out that the responsibility for violence lies primarily with Israel while absolving the Hamas rulers in Gaza by blaming ‘Palestinian militants’ as if those responsible are operating completely against the wishes of Hamas. It seems akin to being blamed for shooting someone throwing a dud grenade into your house because the grenade was a dud and didn’t kill anyone. It’s also ‘bigotry of low expectations’, where the Palestinians are not criticised as if they have no free will and thus cannot be guilty, whereas they report how wilful the Israeli actions are implying that they deserve greater ethical sanction for this.

    “Two Palestinian men died after Israeli troops fired on crowds in Gaza during clashes earlier on Friday.”

    More Propaganda: “Clashes”? Does the BBC think that the Israeli soldiers go out to fight against innocent crowds who happened to be milling around, or were they there to stop violence by these crowds? Why were these men shot to death? Were they engaged in acts of violence? The BBC does not say, and probably doesn’t care anyway: a SJW-designated victim group is targeted and that is all that matters to the BBC.

    • The BBC is as bad as the CBC. The Bias is palpable.

    Those lucky Americans. They get a Trump while we have a lisping virtue signalling metrosexual airhead.

  • This could be resoled if the US withdrew from the UN.

      Agreed as the UN is beyond reform.

      • It was never meant for anything other than one world nonsense.

      The UN needs to be destroyed, root and branch, instead of sane democracies just leaving it (sorry Canada). Defunding it is the first step. While the UN remains it will be used to provide a de facto veneer of global law, morals and ethics that it really does not have.

      • De-funding it is a major step. No other country will pick up that particular torch.
