Nikki Haley Says Farewell to “Hopelessly Biased” UN Security Council

In a blistering final speech before the UN Security Council this week, outgoing Ambassador Nikki Haley accused the international organization of being “hopelessly biased” against Israel and even suggested that the time may be drawing near when the U.S. will have to remove itself from the United Nations altogether.

“Over the past two years, I have attempted to provide more value in this monthly meeting by using my time to speak about other pressing problems in the Middle East,” Haley said. “I’ve done it to illustrate that most of the region’s problems have absolutely nothing to do with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. And I’ve done it to encourage the U.N. to move away from its obsession with Israel.

“This U.N. obsession has been entirely unproductive,” Haley continued. “It’s actually worse than that. The U.N.’s obsession with this issue has been counterproductive. It has sent a loud and false message to the Palestinians that they just might be able to achieve their goals by relying on the U.N., rather than through direct negotiations. And it has sent a loud and accurate message to the Israelis that they can never trust the U.N. This biased obsession is not the path to peace. It is the path to an endless stalemate.”

Haley told the Security Council that the Trump administration was preparing a new Middle East peace plan that would change the game as it pertains to Israel and the Palestinians. She advised the UN to get on board with the plan.

“It brings new elements to the discussion, taking advantage of the new world of technology we now live in,” she said. “It recognizes that realities on the ground in the Middle East have changed in powerful and important ways. This plan will be different from all previous ones — the critical question is whether the response to it will be any different.”

In an interview with reporters later in the week, Haley said that the U.S. needs to re-evaluate whether membership (and endless funding) of the UN was serving America’s interests any longer.

“The American people need to decide if it’s worth it,” she said. She noted that the UN was filled with monetary waste and was “politically unfair” to the U.S. and Israel.

To say that the United Nations has become entirely worthless would be overstating the situation; they have helped put pressure on North Korea, Iran (well…), and other adversaries of peace with some degree of effectiveness. And as an international relief organization, the UN continues to do good work. On the other hand, it cannot be denied that this is a body that gives as much or more weight to the opinions and votes of brutal dictators and totalitarian gangsters as it does the leaders of the free world. And that’s a problem that needs to be addressed if we are to remain beholden in any way to its edicts.

    • The United Nations has been hopelessly flawed from it’s inception with the TRAP door the Russian’s abused; the veto —- The Russians used it from the git! The other FLAW was to have on the Security Council (where police action strategy was planned ) the Russians —the very people that supplied North Korea with weapons (AK-47 s) , Airplanes & Pilots, and Chinese Regulars (foot soldiers)—-We were NOT ALLOWED to win—just lose lives and treasure—-The same crap went on for years in another “police action” in Viet Nam—Under Jimmy Carter We went to war again for oil—Well now We have energy suppiies a plenty–300 Years of coal which the environmental dictators wish Us not to use====and an ample supply of OUR OWN OIL. Thanks to Trump.

  1. as long as islam exists and has followers, there will never be peace or an end to bombings, beheadings, deceit, and deep seated hatred as a lifestyle, anywhere on this planet. The UN is incapable of seeing itself for what it is and should move out of its current HQ in NYC to some other more suitable nation location. The US should wash its hands of any involvement – financial or otherwise – with the UN. Period.

    • Islamists are being used by the International Communists and Their Bankers. Useful idiots that will be cast away once no longer useful. The only people that win at war anymore are the people that loan the money to all sides where They collect interest from the winners and dissolve / liquidate the losers.

  2. Remove the United States from the UN as soon as it is possible without jeopardizing the security of Israel and our other good allies, not the phony allies, that vote against the US, regardless in what it pertains to. Most of the members vote against the US just because of who we are and not because of policy. Object and resist is their mantra and that will not change for a very long time. If and when it changes and we become an equal member, as far as monetary policy goes, then, maybe, reenter, however, I doubt that will ever take place. The UN does nothing but hurt our standing in the world’s eyes, although, right now we are hurting ourselves even more. Laughing stock comes to mind. By the way, I happen to think the President is doing a good job with foreign policy with regard to the last administrations I’m sorry policy.

  3. WHY hasn’t any of our Presidents gotten us OUT of the UN ? Most of us learned long ago you cannot “buy” real friends with money. Evidently none of our Presidents believe this. Most of our elected officials know full well most Americans do not want us in the UN, as usual we re ignored. We are told to sit down and shit up, THEY know what’s best for us and our country !

  4. AGREED with every statement I just read. Americans are Not Stupid! Unfortunately most of our so called leaders in the House and Congress are.

  5. nikki we the american people are behind you 100% your doing a great job for our country. i believe most americans feel the same way stop wasting our hard earned money on the un all together.

  6. The UN was an ideal situation which has never worked. You can help people earn their way out of poverty but not give them alms, won’t ever work.

    They want our guns, liberty, wealth, and us reduced to their squalor, then, they will hate us for having given in to them.

    Be the BEST POSSIBLE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 🇺🇸. LIVE TO OUR IDEALS, KEEP ALL RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS SCREWED TO OUR STICKING PLACE AND READY FOR BATTLE TO BE FORCED UPON US AT ANY TIME WITHOUT ANY GIVEN REASON.

  7. I AGREE WITH YOU 100%, iT HAS BEEN PROVED THAT A WALL WORKS , THERE IS A OLD SAYING “CHARITY STARTS AT HOME” WE NEED TO HELP OUR VETERANS WHO HAVE GIVEN US OUR FREEDOM AND AND DIED DOING IT. AMERICA BECAME A COUNTRY WHERE EVERY ONE WANTED TO COME AND LIVE BECAUSE IT WAS GREAT. WELL, IT LOST IT STATUS AND PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING EVERYTHING TO MAKE IT GREAT AGAIN. JUST THINK HOW GREAT IT WOULD BE IF “THE SWAMP PEOPLE IN D.C WORKED WITH HIM INSTEAD OF HOW TO FILL THEIR OWN POCKETS.

  8. Is Nikki Haley or whoever she calls herself the most nasty ethocentric sadistic well dressed psychopath on record? Walter Lantz used to do cartoons(Chilly Willy, Woody Woodpecker, etc) where the next frame would be a hand with a pencil eraser obliterating the character. Creepy magazine should show up and do Psycho Nikki and let the world smile for awhile. Cruelty and theft are NOT virtues and somebody needs to teach her that.
