Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon demanded on Tuesday that the United Nations Security Council condemn Hamas for inciting tens-of-thousands of Palestinians to breach the Gaza-Israel border in order to attack Jewish civilians one day after deadly riots left 60 people dead.
“Over the past month, Israel had to defend itself from the violent rioters along the security fence with Gaza,” Danon said during an emergency meeting of the UNSC, beginning his remarks with a promise to stick “just to the facts.”
“These were not demonstrations, these were not protest, these were violent riots. They have repeatedly attempted to sabotage and breach the fence with the explicit goal of killing Israelis.”
Danon accused Hamas of wanting “death over peace,” and condemned the terrorist organization for exploiting their own people and using them as a collective “human shield.”
“Hamas has committed war crimes not only against Israeli civilians but also against its own people – turning them into human shields for their own cynical gain. Every casualty that has resulted from the recent violence is a victim of Hamas’ war crimes,” the ambassador added.
He wasn’t alone in his fight!
Ambassador Haley has been a steely-eyed killer when it comes to staring down the Russians, North Korea, Iran, and the entire cabal of despots, autocrats, and theocrats that comprise the dubious global body politic we call the United Nations.
Speaking to the Council, calmly yet firmly, Haley criticized the United Nations’ tolerance for violence against Israel, asking her colleagues whether they would accept this kind of behavior from any other nation if the target wasn’t the Jewish people, and blaming the terrorist organization, Hamas, for both inciting the violence, and using Palestinians as human shields.
“Let’s remember that the Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States decided to move our embassy,” Haley told the U.N. “This is what is endangering the people of Gaza. Make no mistake, Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday.”
“No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has. In fact, the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained,” Haley said.
Nikki Haley brings the truth to a UNSC that doesn't want to hear it. But we hear it. This is near perfect: pic.twitter.com/xriABGAwUN

She is the best United States Ambassador to the United Nations I have ever witnessed! (That covers several decades).
I am so happy Nikki Haley took this job. She is great and I think she would make a Super President of the United States someday. Give them all Hell and keep telling it the way it should be period.
