Why do I refer to the U.N. as the Useless Nations? If you have to ask…………
Nikki Haley and the Trump administration didn’t take lightly a United Nations report co-written by a known anti-Israel scholar that accused Israel of being an apartheid state:
FOX NEWS – A United Nations report co-authored by anti-Israel scholar Richard Falk on Wednesday accused the U.S. ally of being “guilty of the crime of apartheid” – triggering a furious response from the Trump administration, which demanded the U.N. “withdraw” the study.
America’s U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley blasted the report as “anti-Israel propaganda” in a statement late Wednesday.
“The United States stands with our ally Israel and will continue to oppose biased and anti-Israel actions across the UN system and around the world,” Haley said.
The report was commissioned by the U.N Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia. While apartheid originally was associated with South Africa, the report said Israel’s policies today meet the definition of “an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination” by one racial group over another.
The report inflamed already-frayed tensions between the U.N. and the Trump administration. Haley blasted Falk while urging the secretary-general to go further.
“That it was drafted by Richard Falk, a man who has repeatedly made biased and deeply offensive comments about Israel and espoused ridiculous conspiracy theories, including about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, is equally unsurprising,” Haley said. “The United Nations Secretariat was right to distance itself from this report, but it must go further and withdraw the report altogether.”
